I continue to take you through the most prominent makeup trends of SS’17 in this blogpost. This week, we’re taking a look at the blush trend. There’s only one rule: Do not hold back. Seriously, I even had to grab a high pigment orange eyeshadow to get the color pay-off I wanted. And if I could, I would have intensified the color even more.
From all the blushalicious looks that passed on the SS17 runways, I decided to mimic the one from Kenzo by makeup artist Linsey Alexander. She applied the blush heavily on the high points of the cheeks, as a wash of eyeshadow and over the brows onto the model’s temples. To complement the blush, she applied a bright glossy lip.
(P.S.: Excuse the brows. I don’t think I have ever done them this badly.)2
