This video above focuses on the Rouge Coco lipsticks but even as she's showcasing one item, I love how Lisa talks about other makeup touches to complete a look. What caught my eye was the soft pink glow of the Joues Contraste blush ($43 at Chanel.com) she applied towards the end of the video to give her a healthy glow. She also showcases this blush in her 2011 favorites video.
When I got to the Chanel counter and the makeup artist applied it on my cheek, it instantly made me look spring-ready and healthy looking. The pink tones of the blush are perfect for light to medium skin tones and work perfectly with rosy pink or nude lips. You can blush on more for a stronger look or go very light for a more natural look which is what I usally do.
Buy Chanel Joues Contraste blush in Rose Pétale.
I also recommend the Chanel Pinceau Blush Brush #4 ($54). There brushes are the best and I have found that they last the longest. I've gone back to MAC's brushes and had to come back to Chanel ones for blush as well as face powder because they are softer and collect the powder much better than the other ones I have used.
