How to Blush Like a French Girl

“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” -Yves Saint Laurent

A Parisian will never overdo it on her makeup, but she’s definitely got a few makeup tricks up her sleeve. Here’s how I fake (and boy do I mean fake!) an awake and flushed look all day while keeping it natural:

Dior to Make You Blush

This blush may look over-the-top in its container, but it looks absolutely natural on the cheeks. The pink blends differently with every skin tone, but it’s always a creamy, un-shimmery glow that looks fabulous on the apples of the cheeks.

Dior helps you nail the French-girl trick of effortless style by making you look awake and flushed without any trace of makeup.

I apply this blush with the included brush, but a big fluffy round brush would make it look even more natural. Experiment with layering the color to find your perfect level of pink.
