Add a youthful freshness to your face with spring's prettiest make-up shade.
Susanna Cohen explains how to get these catwalk-inspired looks at home
A pinky blush was one of the defining make-up looks on the SS17 catwalks. At Chanel it was subtly blended from cheek to temple and teamed with glossy pink lips, while at Kenzo it was applied with a nod to disco.
‘Pink is a great way to add colour to your complexion after the winter,’ says make-up artist Kenneth Soh. ‘It also brings a youthful freshness to the face.’
Take a large brush and dust cheeks with a hot-pink blusher. Tap off any excess, then buff to diffuse pigment over the cheeks. Finally, use a smaller brush to apply an intense pop of pink to the highest point of the cheek. To keep the look current, balance it with neutral colours.
Sweep bronze shadow around the eyes, and define the waterline with black kohl. Finish with mascara, nude lipstick and a glossy pink nail.
Whether it’s clashing ditsy florals, leopard or oversized checks, this look is all about enjoying yourself.
