With the season now upon us, we take a look at a few key products to help achieve that soft, youthful look.

Rosy View Ahead

Chanel Perles Et Fantaisies, $100; Nars Impassioned Blush in Pink Orchid, $50; Dior Diorsnow Cherry Bloom Rosy Glow Powder, $82.

We’re not looking at cheeks that are flushed this season, but ones that have a barely-there, pretty rosiness instead. Besides getting the look with blushers, highlighting powder compacts are a good alternative if you aren’t a pro with the blending and smudging techniques that blushers require.

The Prettiest Eyes

This season, there’s a wide variety of eyeshadow shades spanning the entire spectrum of pinks – from the palest salmon to the cheeriest candy. Be sure to rim your eyes with a grey liner for some contrasting definition, as pink eye-makeup tends to make the eye area look puffy.

A Kiss of Pink-Peach

Nars Vida Loca Lip Gloss in Guava (limited edition), $37; Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Delicate, $49.

Lip shades are getting softer again but don’t go full nude as it can make your complexion look washed out. Instead, try a swipe of pink-peach – so delicate and versatile.
