Here comes the sun, and with it a slew of makeup designed to make you look like your best flushed self. As we thaw out through Spring, the layers of caked foundation, contour and concealer fall away to reveal fresh faced beauty to suit every possible skintone. What we’re left with is skin that’s been on vacation, had a little too much to drink, and maybe enjoyed an afternoon… delight.
NARS joins the trend with their latest offering: a giant version of Orgasm blush. The cult favorite that helped put the brand on the map has been upgraded to 3.4 ounces (vs. 1.92 ounces) for Summer. The pinky-peach shade is universally flattering, and can be lightly brushed on for a sheer hint of color, or layered for a full flush.
Charlotte Tilbury, she of the ‘feline flick’ and ‘bedroom eye’, just released the latest addition to her namesake makeup collection. Legendary Lashes Mascara promises to lift, lengthen and curl the lashes without a single clump. Tilbury claims the formula nourishes the lashes as it takes even the most paltry fringe to lush new heights.
Givenchy’s contribution includes an upgrade to the perfect red lip. The Magnolia Couture Collection features Le Rouge Lipstick in Carmin Escarpin: a rich orange red that will flatter a wide range of skin tones. Pat it on with fingers for a bright stain, or apply straight from the bullet for a full pout.
