trending: rosy cheeks

The other day, we talked about bubble gum-tinted lips, so today, let’s talk about bubble gum-tinted cheeks!

Choosing the right blush can be overwhelming on even the best of days, but choosing the right neon-pink blush can be downright scary!  Can I wear pink? What if it’s too bright? What if it’s hard to blend? Will I look like a cartoon character?

Still, I couldn’t help but fall in love with these pinky cheeks:

Wanting to recreate these looks for myself, I drove right over to my neighborhood Sephora and started playing with colors. After a little while, I finally settled on this one: Stila Custom Color Blush in Self-Adjusting Pink.

As the name suggests, this blush is self-adjusting, meaning it reacts with the pH levels in your skin. It’s sheer and light, which I love, and it has just the right amount of pigment.

I use a bronzer to contour my face, brushing the powder under my cheek bones and along my hair line. Then, I brush the Stila blush on the apples of my cheeks and along my cheek bones, adding the pink glow I’m looking for. This blush builds easily, too, so I can make it as bright as I want. Perfect!

So far, I’m digging this bubble gum trend!
