If you thought that winter was the time for your cheeks to stand out – what with that flushed, rosy just-in-from-the-cold look that dominated so much of our appearance last season – get ready for the warm, natural glow that springtime is sure to bestow upon them.
“Sexy sculpted, sun-kissed cheeks will always represent a sign of femininity and seduction,” BecomeGorgeous.com reports. “You’ll look absolutely stunning, irresistible and elegant with translucent skin and a bronzing blush. On the other hand, a pink or peachy blush…draws attention through the natural, fresh effect it creates.”
The best part about this trend is it eliminates the need for an all-over tan (and relieves you of feeling the need to engage with all those damaging UV rays!). Ladies of all complexions can benefit from a touch of bronzer or blush, but even super pale skin can look glowing in all of its natural splendor.
To achieve the most natural sun-kissed look, apply a light dusting of pigment to the areas of your face the sun would naturally hit (temples, cheekbones, browbones, the bridge of your nose and the top of the forehead).
