With the swift onset of January I’ve suddenly found myself with a sad case of pale, sallow skin. Unfortunately with all the post-holiday craziness, there isn’t any time for a quick sun-filled trip to Aruba, and there’s not even enough time for a spray-tan appointment, so I’m making most of what I’ve got and flaunting the pale skin that my mama gave me. There’s something super-sexy about the shock of red lips against white skin, it’s such a classic, timeless look. When I’m not sporting a red lip, I like a nice healthy flush, and there isn’t a better way of achieving it than through a lip/cheek stain. Just a touch of Stila Cherry Crush on the apples of my cheeks brings out a rosy glow that’s reminiscent of my childhood (all kids have such gorgeous skin). Finish off the look with a dab of concealer under the eyes, and a dusting on luminescent powder on the cheekbones (I absolutely adore bareMinerals Flawless Radiance All Over Face Color, it gives a beautiful lit-from-within effect) and get your glow on!
