The only way is Up!

Looking for a youthful flush of colour? This is just the ticket as in case you haven’t heard, blush is back!

The Up Cosmetics Cream Blush collection contains two beautiful shades to compliment all skin tones, creating that much sought-after dewy radiant glow.

Blush Pink (RRP €20) is the perfect buildable rouge with a creamy consistency packed full of pigment. A little goes a long way to deliver that sought after natural radiance. The Blush Peach Glow (RRP €20) is a beautifully blendable blush with a peachy sunkissed colour to give the cheeks definition and a luminous shine. One of the biggest blush trends this year is blush draping. Popularised in the 1970s and 1980s by stars like Debbie Harry and Cher, is a technique that uses blusher to sculpt and shape the face, enhancing its structure. Expert makeup artist and Katrina Camacho (@bykatrinaleigh) has some tips to recreate the look: • Use a cream blush so you can tailor the level of blush • Use a bright colour for a youthful flush • Apply the blush higher on your cheekbones and around the temples, instead of just on the apples of the cheeks • Add a pop of blush to your eye look for a monochromatic finish • If you prefer a minimal look, keep the blush to the top of your cheekbones
