Spring/Summer 2012 Makeup (Part 2)

Do you like your cheeks? Whatever your answer might be-Let's make you adore them!

This next makeup trend I'll be reporting about has it's main accent on the cheeks and it is all about looking healthy, glowy and beautifully sun-kissed. The trend is known by the name Flushed Cheeks.

                    Let's take a look at some pictures from the Valentino S/S 2012 catwalk:

As you can see from the pictures I've posted, there is minimal makeup but there is that pop of colour on the cheeks. 
 To achieve this look you should probably skip the part when you apply setting powder after your foundation and instead of a powder blush try a cream one to make your skin look more smooth and hydrated.
Try Maybelline's Dream Touch Blush in Peach

it has a mousse consistency which is really light and easy to apply with your fingers or a stippling brush.

Another tip for this makeup trend is to try and match your blush with your lipstick or lipgloss for more effect. So for this peachy blush I would recommend Revlon's Smoked Peach matte lipstick or Revlon Peach Petal lipgloss.

And for powder blush lovers I got something to recommend too - Illamasqua's Tremble powder blush.
It is one of my favourite blushes and I should be ashamed of myself from not wearing it more often.

In conclusion, I have to say that this Flushed Cheeks trend is perfect for those who prefer minimal makeup and are not afraid of accentuating their cheeks. It doesn't require a lot of time which is always good.
Look sunkissed in winter!
