Blusher : The Body Shop Lip and Cheek stains – Perfect Spring Makeup

These little blusher beauties are by no means new to The Body shop and their makeup collection, however the Lip and Cheek stains don’t seem to get the hype I feel they deserve and that’s why I’d like to pay them some solo attention today. What’s more they’re perfect for adding a hint of freshness to your look, which makes them perfect spring makeup. I don’t know about you but I am ready to dust off those winter blues and bring some (much needed) blush back into my cheeks.

What they are?

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek stains
A liquid blusher, available in a variety of shades, with a sheer, thin, quick drying formula. The product acts like a stain, that once applied to the skin dries fast, so the key here is to work quickly, blending edges to ensure a beautifully flushed from within appearance. It’s a multi-use product that can be used on the cheeks and lips leading to a lovely monochromatic feel; especially when playing with the more neutral tones as this can look wonderfully natural; beautifully healthy (should one wish to fake a glow, I do). The benefit of it being a stain is in it’s longevity, these are great for lasting all day without the need for top ups.

The lip and cheek stains come in small round tubes with a screw on lid that has a doe foot applicator. You can apply this straight to the face from the applicator, dab some on your finger first then to your cheeks or dust a brush over the doe foot (or a spatular if you’re a Makeup artist, for hygiene reasons) and blend from there. I personally prefer either the second or third options as you have more control over how much product you’re applying at a time. Remember it’s always easier to apply more, than take it away!

The world is your oyster, well rainbow

The Body Shop offer a really beautiful range of shades to suit all skin tones. As a bonus you can easily mix colours together to create your own unique shade. I also think it’s really pretty to use one shade as a base and add a touch of another just in the centre of the apple of the cheek, to add a touch more depth to the overall blusher look.

Vegetarian and Cruelty Free

A bonus is that you’re supporting a brand that is both 100% vegetarian  and Cruelty Free. While The Body Shop have recently launched some vegan products, The Lip and Cheek stains are not listed as vegan.

Bare faced beauties

I used these tints on my gorgeous models in a fashion editorial to create a fresh spring look. As you can see the tints are very natural and build able a fun to use. I love them!

For some reason WordPress sadly seems to have toned down the beautifully brightness of the colours our photographer captured! You can see the true nature on both mine and Charlotte’s professional instagrams:

So if like me, you’re yearning for warmer, lighter days that bring a natural radiance to our skin, why not consider trying out one of these when updating your makeup bag for spring. Call me flush, but I’m a fan.
