For sexy sun-kissed cheeks, combine two colors:
1). Take some bronzing powder on a large, fluffy brush, and using short up-and-down strokes, blend it over the cheekbone. For perfect color placement, start near the hairline and follow the cheekbone down toward the apple.
2). Next, take a pink, peach or nude-beige powder blush on a small, round blush brush, and using circular motions, apply it to the apple of the cheek (the plump part which protrudes when you smile).
Hot tip! To avoid applying too much bronzer or blush, tap any excess powder off the brush before you begin. If you go wrong and your cheeks look too strong, knock down the color by blending some loose powder over the top.
Cool tricks! To make powder blush easier to blend, prepare the skin with a layer of foundation and loose powder first. For super-dewy cheeks, skip the powder step and work a cream blush straight over your foundation. Want your skin to glow from within? For a subtle surface flush, apply a cheek tint or gel before your foundation.
My product picks! Best bronzer: I love M·A·C’s Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden, Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna and Clarins Bronzing Powder Compact in Golden Sun. Fave blush: I adore M·A·C’s Powder Blush in Pink Swoon, Benefit Benetint and the Stila Convertible Color range.
