Making You Blush: The Season’s Best Shades

As your summer sun-kissed glow fades, so too should your bronzer! The replacement? A blush. To help you make the transition from tanned to rosy, here are some of the best colours to sweep over your cheeks.

Think Pink: There’s nothing more classic than a pink blush. Whether it’s as subtle as the shade of  ballet slippers or as fiery as fuchsia, these palettes are perfect for lighter skin tones. MAC’s Pro Longwear Blush in  Rosy Outlook will do the job!

Rockin’ Reds: If you’re looking to make a stronger statement or for darker complexions, choose a bordeaux  or red-hued colour. It’ll add sultry flair and surely turn heads! Why not try Marc Jacobs’ Shameless Bold Blush in Tantalizing Magenta?

Mix it Up: To get the best of both worlds, and for those who just can’t part with the tanned glow, you can go for a marbled option. These have blush-toned pigments, as well as bronzy bits. Take a look at the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush from Sephora if you think it’s all too good to be true!

So there you have it! There’s plenty to choose from because unless you’re jet-setting to tropical places as the temperatures drop to keep that summer tan intact, it’s time to swap your bronzer for blush.

Lock Lips with This Season’s Bold Shades

This summer, pucker up for the brightest lip shades! From firey fuchsias and bright oranges to dark reds, these powerful hues were worn by almost every female film star at Cannes. Isla Fisher impressed in a cherry hue while Nicole Kidman and Emma Watson sported punchy pinks. And so the trend has been set.

Now, a bold lip is nothing new in the world of beauty. It’s been worn for so long and so often that it is a classic. But what’s different this time around, is that these bold shades are worn to stand out on their own. The make-up palette is neutral. Barely there. Natural as the day you were born. What I’m trying to say is, skip that second coat of mascara and go easy on the eyeliner. “Carey Mulligan at Cannes” is your motto.

So leave the smokey eye and rosy cheeks for another night out, and opt instead for only lips that worthy of French Riviera red carpets!
