Things don’t have to be dull and uninteresting just because sweater weather is upon us and instead of the conventional, moody makeup looks, this year’s fall is all about bright and bold hues. While we’re on the topic, you may as well stash your soft mauves and sweet pinks away as orange blush is officially the colour du jour.

This sunny, tangerine shade may seem intimidating at first thought and just far too cheery for a Monday morning, but it works on every skin tone out there and extends an uplifting, sun-kissed flush when popped onto the apples of the cheeks or fanned out beneath the cheekbones. It’s really not as unnatural as it may seem!

Makeup is all about experimentation. You can AND will pull it off whether you like your blush lightly sheered out or delivered with the highest amount of pigment possible to make a grand statement. Whatever you feel comfortable with, girlfriend..
