Put aside your pinks, bronzes and rosy blush favourites – it’s time to get your glow on! Yes, even though it is just the beginning of the cooler months in the land down under, a gorgeous glow can add a spring to your step and brighten those tired, dull complexions.
Trending right now are gorgeous peach toned cheeks, whether delivering a highlighted shimmer or a matte finish, peachy-keen cheeks are a must have addition to your make up bag right now!
Peach tones are a great face-warmer. Picking up the golden undertones of most skin tones, it’s a perfect highlighter and brightener, especially if you are blessed with warmer undertones.
Now remember – the perfect “flushed” look is all about product placement. Peach shaded blush should be used as more of a sculptor and to add just a hint of colour to your cheeks. Using an angled brush drag your colour forward from the centre of your ears (think tragus) to the very beginning of the apples of your cheeks – this will follow your natural cheekbone creating a more chiselled and highlight look.
PRO TIP: You can also wear your peach blush as an eye shadow—use a matte colour above the crease and below the brow and dust a highlighted peach tone in the inner-corner of your eyes to help disguise those dark circles!
Team your glowing peach cheeks with an apricot toned lipstick and apply darker earthy toned eye shadow for a complete look that’s straight off the runway.
