If you are a regular reader of this blog then you may have seen my recent post on coral make-up from Susan Posnick, coral is a universally flattering shade and perfect for complimenting a summer glow.
If you don’t fancy achieving that glow through minerals or lip gloss, then another alternative is a gel-blush. Gel-blush gives a really fresh and healthy glow, and looks really natural. Vie at Home’s (Virgin Vie’s new name) pop colour jelly blush, in Quirky Coral is a gorgeous translucent coral, that is really easy to apply and blend to get your cheeks glowing. Only a tiny amount is needed (and by tiny I mean about half a pea-sized drop) to blend smoothly into cheeks, leaving a totally natural looking flush. If you do want a stronger, less natural look then you could re-apply to get a more vivid colour, but personally I prefer the natural look.
The pop colour jelly blush is going to be one of my summer make-up must haves, easy to apply and looks gorgeously natural, the ideal summer addition when you want a pared-down make-up bag, but still want to look gorgeous and glowing.
