Here's How to Get That Natural Blushing Look

Have everyone asking #WhatMakesYouBlush every time.

Sure, the barely-there makeup trend is the perfect everyday look—but what about those days when you need to look dolled up and photo-ready? From beach parties and music festivals to June weddings and out-of-the-country trips, the special dates to look forward to this summer are endless, and you know you need to look flawlessly (but still effortlessly) gorgeous.

What’s the easiest way to take your no-makeup look up a notch? Add a bit of blush. Here's just what you need: NARS Orgasm Blush. It makes all the difference, as it gives you an attractive, naturally flushed effect. Pair it with the Yachiyo brush, the best brush to use with Orgasm blush.

Why Orgasm Blush?

"Orgasm is special because it suits all skin tones. The pink color and subtle shimmer gives you as natural flush. It’s flattering for so many women," says François Nars. When asked about why women around the world love it so much, he adds, "I would have to say the versatility of the color, the sheerness of the texture, and the name! I want to give products a character and an identity. I want people to remember the names and you can’t forget this one."

When launched in 1999, this iconic blush created a massive sensation that climaxed in numerous spin-off products, countless awards and its designation as the #1-selling blush in the United States. A whopping 510,660 Orgasm blushes (and 954,815 Orgasm products) were sold in 2015 alone, and it has won various in beauty awards, including Allure U.S. Best of Beauty Award, InStyle US Best Beauty Buys, Glamour US Magazine Glammy Award, and Elle Beauty Hall of Fame. Locally, it has bagged a spot in the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards.

Step Up Your No-Makeup Look

Recreate Italian supermodel Maria Carla Boscono’s flirtatious campaign look (which was photographed by François Nars, the founder of NARS Cosmetics), and follow these steps to get a naturally blushing and totally romantic look for all the occasions you’ll be attending this season:

1. Prep the skin with a primer to refine the look of pores, regulate shine, and mattify the skin.

2. Apply a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone and cover any slight blemish. Look fo a lightweight, oil-free formula. 

3. Swipe Orgasm Blush onto the cheekbone. Make sure you use the Yachiyo brush to deposit the pigments perfectly.

4. Finally, line the lips and fill them. If you want an extra pop of color and shine, add a swipe of lip gloss.

NARS Orgasm Blush will be offered in a limited edition oversized compact starting June 1, 2016. Grab yourself one (or start hoarding!) before it’s too late, start experimenting with all the beauty looks you can try with it, and have everyone asking #WhatMakesYouBlush every time.
