HOW TO GET A GLOWING BLUSH
MAKEUP LOOK

July 2, 2024 by Cat Quinn
From Boyfriend Blush to Glazed Blush – blush makeup has been at the centre of this year’s most popular beauty looks. Our favourite blush trend as of late? Blush Smoothie.

Inspired by the viral “skincare smoothie” – created by cocktailing serum and moisturizer – Blush Smoothie is a good-for-you blush combo that mixes M·A·C Glow Play Blush with Hyper Real SerumizerTM Skin Balancing Hydration Serum.

“Blush has a skincare feel to it at the moment,” says Terry Barber, M·A·C Creative Director of Makeup Artistry. “We want blush to be the same texture as the skin – so we’re making our own liquid blush. It’s plump and balloon-like on the cheeks.”

The result? A natural makeup look that gives you a luminous glow while improving the texture and radiance of your skin over time. Whether you prefer a strawberry-, peach- or raspberry-flavoured Blush Smoothie, mix your favourite Glow Play Blush shade with a few drops of Hyper Real SerumizerTM for an easy makeup look that looks good on everyone.
