We all love a little bit of makeup , but it may not be possible to apply while we are on the go. For those who want to glam up their faces without going for makeup, cheek stains or cheek tints are a great way to look fresh and radiant. Jerusha Chande, content head, MyGlamm, which is launching a new range of lip and cheek tints, says that the tints are perfect for people who prefer the natural, fresh-faced look. “These are lightweight and blend seamlessly into your skin, making them perfect for everyday wear. They’re also very versatile and can be used on the cheeks, lips and eyes. The best part is that they minimise the number of products you have to buy and the number of products you have to carry with you for touch-ups,” she adds.
Speaking about their popularity amongst women makeup artists and bloggers, Chande says, “Tints have the amazing ability to brighten up your entire face in an instant. If you feel your face is looking dull or tired, blend a rosy tint into the apples of your cheeks and you’ll see the difference. It’s also a cheat to look younger — a youthful tint of colour will take years off your face. When applied strategically, you can also use it to contour your face subtly or make certain features stand out.”
However, you need to be aware of the right colour and type while buying the tints. Chande advises you need to keep two things in mind — formula and colour. “Tints come in a few different textures, ranging from liquid to cream to balms, and the perfect one should match your skin type. Liquid tints are the most lightweight and are ideal for people with oily or sensitive skin. Creamy and balmy tints are a great way to layer hydration if you have normal or dry skin. For the right colour, it all depends on your complexion and undertone. Warm reds, oranges and peaches usually complement fair to medium complexions and warm undertones. Softer pinks are great if you have lighter skin with cool undertones. Deeper reds, maroons and berries work best with deeper, cooler skin tones,” she suggests.
