One thing the cold winter wind blesses us with, is those flushed cheeks. As the winter is slowly making its exit, rosy cheeks are what we are going to miss. If your skin is looking a little lacklustre – don’t panic. Happily, there’s no need to succumb to the gloom, with a few clever makeup application techniques you can fake a beautiful rosy flush that will instantly add a warming glow to your complexion.
