Beauty Trend: Winter Flushed Cheeks To Make You Glow

Unless you've got an exotic holiday planned, Autumn/Winter is never really the time for 'glowing' skin.

However - although it might be a bit tricky to get a tan, it doesn't mean our complexions can't look clear and radiant. In fact, rosy flushed cheeks were big on the A/W 13 catwalks and best of all, it's an easy trend to master at home.


Backstage at the London College of Fashion's A/W13 show, Mac's Senior Artist Andrew Gallimore described the look as "just in from a winter walk in frosty weather". And he wasn't the only one going for the flushed thing.

Makeup artist Mel Arter worked with Maxfactor at Felder Felder's show to create "winter blushed cheeks and dewy skin".

It's not complicated either - Arter used the brand's CC cream as a base before applying a pink powder and to complete the look, a matte red lipstick. The result? Cool, crisp and yep, it looked amazing with a cosy coat and matching trilby.

The trick is in finding the right blush colour and choosing an easy-to-wear texture (creamy blushers tend to stay put for longer) and faking that winter glow.

Here's our picks of the best blushers out now to give you that gorgeous rosy glow...
