Ambient Lighting Blush introduces a completely new way to blush, with a soft-focus, seamless finish that is out of this world. We asked makeup artist Moani Lee to brainstorm a few different ways to showcase flushed-faced beauty this spring. For all looks, begin with an application of your Hourglass primer, foundation and concealer.
• Try a modern-day Marie Antoinette look with a melange of romantic pinks. Start with a wash of Dim Infusion all over the lids. Follow with a coat of Film Noir Mascara, an application of Radiant Magenta and Luminous Flush on the apples of your cheeks and a swipe of Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet on the lips. Make sure to blend out both blush shades using a circular motion. “It’s a modern and fresh approach to wearing pink,” says Lee. “And one we’ve seen on red carpets lately.”
• For advanced users, it’s possible to combine myriad blush shades to create captivating glamour. First add a soft flush of warmth to the apples of your cheeks, using either Radiant Magenta, Diffused Heat or Luminous Flush. Next, softly contour with a deeper tone, like Mood Exposure. Blend upwards and out towards the temples with a hint of Dim Infusion and finish off with Ethereal Glow as a highlight on the tops of your cheekbones. “The airy, lightweight formula means you can never overdo it,” adds Lee.
