Over the last few months, I found myself reaching for my cream and gel blushes instead of powder. Why? Because cream and gel formulas are not only great for creating a dewy look, they are also super easy to apply! So here are a few tips on how to apply cream and gel blushes, including a brief tutorial.
Looks like Chanel is continuing its color streak from Spring all the way to Fall. At the Chanel A/W 2014 show, models showed off full brows and flawless skin (courtesy of the upcoming The Complexion Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation) paired with a dab of Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Canaille on the cheeks and a silvery eye contrasted with a colorful wing in shades of pink, green, orange and blue. How cool!
At the Lanvin A/W ’14 show, makeup artist Pat McGrath revisited the smudgy eye makeup look at Chanel Fall 2010 and gave it a twist. Models’ lids were covered with a cream-based black liner that was smudged out and faux lashes that were cut clean and square were added for contrast.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath never ceases to amaze me with her skills and creativity and at the Dior A/W 2014 show, she created a high-impact graphic glitter eye in shades of blue and khaki using theatrical latex paint.
