Get the look: At First Blush

Nothing says “hello summer” like rosy cheeks. A pop of pink, coral or bronze is all you need to make your skin sing. Pop these blushing beauties into your make-up bag and get your glow on.

Clockwise from top left: Sculpt, highlight and contour with one of VB’s personal favourites: Victoria Beckham x EstĂ©e Lauder Highlighter in Modern Mercury. The silky formula doubles as the perfect warm bronze eyeshadow too. Try the innovative LancĂ´me Cushion Blush formula that glides onto cheeks to give them the perfect hint of colour. It’s hard to overlook serious shades of pink when it comes to blush and Chanel Joues Contraste in Hyperfresh is just the ticket. Paint your cheeks and your pout with the new YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush shades – a rosy hue of pink and an orangey-coral tone. Bobbi Brown‘s Brightening Brick remains a go-to favourite for an all-over sun-kissed glow.

Beauty with a conscience

According to conservation experts, orangutans will be extinct within a decade unless dramatic action is taken to preserve their natural habitats in Indonesia and Malaysia. But fortunately environmentally minded New Zealand beauty house Trilogy is helping to eleviate the plight of these incredible creatures for the month of November.

Trilogy will donate $2 for every single product sold on its website for the entire month of November. The proceeds will go to the Orangutan Protection Foundation, the largest primate rescue and rehabilitation organisation in the world, which actively rescues and rehabilitates orangutans and releases them into wild, protected rainforest habitats. OPF has have nearly 4,000 orangutans under their protection, which equates to 10% of the world’s remaining population.

So get shopping here and support these majestic creatures – we can personally vouch for the new Exfoliating Body Balm (read our review here).
