This two-product look is the easiest way to fake a fresh, glowing face. First, even out the skin tone with foundation. Then, pick a blush that resembles your natural colour when you’re ‘flushed’. A cream formula works better as it’s easy to blend and looks natural—swipe it on the apples of your cheeks to liven the complexion, and extend it to your lids and temples. Voilà.

Want to match our covergirl’s happy vibe? Put on a fresh, flawless no make-up make-up face. Steer clear of foundation and get your favourite concealer to do the job—conceal and perfect your skin. Dust on some blush with a giant, fluffy brush, and add a hint of balm on the lips. Finish up with a thin eyeliner and a few coats of mascara to really open up the eyes.

3. Rosé All Day
A great way to build on the ‘flushed’ look to make it more Wine O’Clock-appropriate: turn to wine-rose smokey lids. To cop this look, all you need to do is pick a pigmented rose-coloured shadow or a burgundy one (if you want to make lids even hotter), and swipe it on the outer half of the lids, along with the cheekbones. This warms up the face and makes your eyes look wide. Finish up with a thin eyeliner and a healthy coating of mascara.

4. Bold and Graphic
Matching your lips to your lids is major ATM. Intensify it by adding a winged eyeliner to the mix. Not enough? Extend the wings over the lids in a ‘V’ formation for an elegant-yet-edgy look.
