Blush Vs. Bronze – what cheek trend to take
We always want what we canâ€™t have, so as a perpetually pale skinned one, I never leave the house without bronzer to give myself a golden brown look. But looking through the make-up bags of the girls in the office today, I was shocked that there was a very clear divide between whether youâ€™re a blusher or bronzer gal. It seems youâ€™re either one or the other so I set out to look for the pros and cons of both.
Spring isnâ€™t spring without a pink cheek and at the SS12 catwalks designers and make-up artists created girly, natural looking cheeks with blusher. At Tracy Reese a dash of blush was swept high on the cheekbones creating a soft flush. This season 1920â€™s trend was embraced at Ralph Lauren with make-up artist Tom Pecheux brushing rose-petal blush over the apples of the cheeks and adding a dusting of pink. The look was natural, feminine and very much the English Rose.
But then comes summer and everyone seems to be sporting a tan so the bronzer is cracked out to highlight the natural places where the sun hits. At Timo Weiland they used NARS make-up artists to create a surfer-cool “sunburnt look” by sweeping bronzer high on the cheeks and temples and across the lids. Itâ€™s the easy way to achieve a natural sun-kissed radiance without actually damaging the skin â€“ perfect! Bronzer is designed to highlight and contour the face, collarbone, dĂ©colletage and shoulders so jump on the bandwagon and get the look. But beware the dreaded orange line down your cheeks. Be sure to blend bronzer well and youâ€™ll be set for a gorgeous summer glow.
