Low-Slung Blush: Thumbs up or down?

Monday, September 26, 2011

After years of ruthlessly perfecting the natural blush-y cheeks, it seems that the slightly more eccentric look is coming back his autumn. According to François Nars the vibe of 18th century romanticism mixed with a bit of drama is very IN this season. François says that to achieve the correct finish, you have to blend a darker blush very low on your cheeks and this way your face will look thinner and more elongated.

My darlings, do you wear blush daily or just for special occasions? What do you think about this trend? Will you try it? xo

P.S: I love this cream blush.
P.P.S: The anti-ageing eyebrow.

Hmmm.... not sure how I feel about this trend on me. With my complexion and high cheek bones it just might make me look off. My face I think is too commercial. But I love the thought that it stems from the 18th century. Interesting!

It's interesting, but I just don't think it looks very natural with that placement. Maybe if it were still low but more towards the back of the cheeks it'd work as a contour, but there, I'm not so sure about it....

Not blown away by it, but I'm not hating it either. Frankly I have zero makeup skill so take my opinion with a grain of salt ;)

I'm not a huge fan! It makes these models look too skinny in their faces. I don't know, I'm kinda a hippie when it comes to my makeup though...

Sara, I'm not great with makeup eihter...

Tiffany, it's a very Marie Antoinette type of look for sure. I think, it could work for fancy parties, what do you think?

I love this trend and I wish I could pull it off. It totally reminds me of the old times. It's very romantic. Happy Monday, Di

Love, Amy

Btw: There is a girl in a cafe next to our flat who wears blush like that and she looks STUNNING. Each time I go in to grab a coffee, I can't get my eyes off her:) Btw: She also always wears a high-bun and cute glasses.

not too sure about this, but i know i definitely couldn't pull it off!

I definitely wear blush everyday but I dont think this is a trend I will be trying out. It looks like a rash not blush.

oh,henry! said...

i love it! my sister is wearing it all the time and she looks like a porcelain doll and it suits her so much!

Tish said...

eh...I'm out on this one too. Blush is all about the cheek bone.

Krystal said...

it's cute!

Diana Mieczan said...

Irena, I love what you said - "porcelain doll"...and your sister must be totally adorable:)

Anytime you can see it's makeup and not just natural skin it doesn't work for me. Maybe the placement would work if they hadn't gone so bold with the color/depth?

Might work for the runway, but not to the office!

Mmm the models are certainly gorgeous. On certain face shapes I can see it might be great. I already have the thin, slightly elongated face, so I prefer higher placed blush that makes my cheeks look fuller, so this trend isn't for me. I do like that with this trend they've kept the rest of the makeup more subtle.

I think it's cool. I like make-up trends--they are FUN. Life is meant to be fun and the good news? Make-up washed off! :) xo

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..I LOVE your comment, Caroline! You are fantastic:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Lucent, such a good point. I also love that with bolder colour blush the rest of the makeup is very subtle.

fashionhogger said...

Definitely makes the face look elongated; wow what a trick. I'm not sure I like it, though.

va said...

It's not for me but I really enjoy your creative blog posts Diana . You really pick out so many neat topics , I have no idea how to do an interesting post and to make it fun and exciting ..

va said...

I forgot to add my fave cream blush is 100 percent pure lip and cheek tint and the greatest part of all is it's all natural and doesn't harm your skin !

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..Va, you are so sweet. Thank you. Btw: I love natural cosmetics as well. They are fantastic for my skin:)
