Chic blushing

When it comes to blush, there are usually two mainstreams: the ‘peachy pink’ and the ‘rosy pink’. Whereas the first one is more common in summer and matches perfectly to hotter, more golden skin undertones, the ‘rosy pink’ or often called ‘cold pink’ looks very chic on very fair complexions and is of course the shade to wear in winter. As it is the ‘stay-away’ color if you naturally tend to blush too much or your sensitive skin gets irritated very quickly and develops an embarrassing redness.

Rosy pink cheeks look chic par excellence. They add that vintage, cinematic, romantic ‘charme’ that speaks by itself.

Something very important to remember is that if you’ve spent the whole night at your desk, or out at the club dancing, chatting, flirting…etc… and you look very tired the morning after, a touch of rosy blush on the cheeks will help your make up seem a little healthier and a little more chic, ça va sans dire. Any orange-yellow powders will only have the downside effect of increasing that post-hangover, post-workaholic-night tiredness.

To me the king of ‘rosy pink’ blushes is Dior. This in the picture, although has been one of my favorites for the last four years, has now been discontinued and replaced by the Rosy Glow Healthy Glow awakening Blush. Shall I add more words?

    Rosy glow is one of my favorite blushers ever! I agree, pink blusher can look so fresh and delicate 🙂

  3. I’m a “rosy-pink” kind of girl too! No matter the season! And Rosy Glow is my all-time favourite. It really does wonders to all skin tones! 🙂

    In summer I like to switch between rosy and peachy pink, depending on whether I’m going for a more bronzy or more fresh look. That Dior blush looks gorgeous!
