One of my FAVORITES...CHEEKS!
Everyone that knows me knows one thing for sure...I will leave the house without eye makeup on...but I will NOT leave the house without at least a little cheek color on! Because this week is all about quick tips...here are my favorite QUICKIES for cheeks!
1. The look is NOT about CONTOURING!! NOT that we don't do this at all, we do...BUT, overall the look is about healthy! So put down your contouring brush for cheeks for a minute and listen! :) A flush of color on the apples of your cheeks is sometimes all you need!
2. Try using 2 products - a bronzer and a blush, a cream and a powder, a blush and a highlighter! You'd be surprised what a difference this makes...AND it will stay on longer throughout the day!! I'll have a more detailed "how-to" on this soon! In the meantime, play!
3. Pick a blush that's WAY brighter than you would normally try! I love using a bright pink or bright coral on the apples of the cheeks! Tone it down with a bronzer if you want, but try it!! You'll look awake, happy, healthy and it will even brighten your eyes a bit!! TRY IT! It's just makeup, it washes off!!
4. Bronzers aren't just for summer!! Use your favorite matte bronzer right now when you need it most! Applied the right way (not all over your face!!) will give you that healthy bit of color you're missing in the dead of winter!! Dust under the cheekbones, across the forehead, nose, etc...start with a little at a time!
Are you picking up a subtle theme here?? Cheek color is about giving you a healthy, vibrant look...try something new this week and let me know how it goes!!
