There are two camps when it comes to pink makeup. Those who embrace it unabashedly; pink lipstick, eye shadow, blush, even hair—the pinker the better. Then there are the more color-averse. Luckily, Clinique China Colour Expert Kim Zhang has created this peaches and cream look that anyone and everyone can wear. His trick? Pair a complexion-warming peach blush with a glossy sheer pink lip. The final look is skin-flattering, feminine and full of energy. Here’s how to get it.
A good glow starts with healthy skin. Start by massaging Turnaround Revitalizing Treatment Oil onto clean skin in upward sweeping motions. The silky-light formula gently exfoliates dull skin cells and conditions to give you dewy skin, instantly.
Step 1: Create healthy skin.
Even out any imperfections by spot applying Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer where needed. Not only will it immediately cover any imperfections, but over time it keeps skin healthy and hydrated. The pointed tip of the wand makes targeted concealing super easy, especially under your eyes or around your nose. Blend with your fingers or a foundation brush.
Step 2: Lock in the glow.
To give skin an airbrushed finish, lightly layer Super City Block BB Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This weightless fluid foundation blends seamlessly and can be reapplied as needed throughout the day.
Step 3: Smile and swirl.
The linchpin of this look: Cheek Pop in Peach Pop, a vibrant peach, which gives you an energized, just-pinched flush without looking powdery. Load the blush onto a blush brush, then gently sweep over cheeks, keeping the color intensity concentrated on the apples of your cheeks.
Step 4: Light up your lids.
Keep the fresh-faced look going with a wash of Lid Pop in Cream Pop, a shimmery nude shade. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to sweep it across your lids and blend out softly.
Step 5: Pick a juicy lip color.
To get fresh glossy lips, press Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Whoppin’ Watermelon onto center of your lips and blend outwards. The super sheer formula makes pulling off a bright pink lip color that much easier—you don’t even need a mirror to apply it.
