This is a quick makeup look I did using Bourjois lip/cheek tint or Bourjois Rouge Hi-tech as the product is named.
Lip/cheek tints or stains are gel or water based products that can be used on the cheeks as well as the lips for a natural looking stained or ‘just bitten’ effect and are a great alternative to blush or lipstick/gloss. They set really quickly so they need to be blended in to the skin really fast. On application and blending, they sink into the skin and the color generally deepens over the course of next 2-3 min due to the body heat and the stain sets into a long lasting matte finish.

Foundations feel too heavy in day in the summers especially if you are likely to be out in the heat. I prefer skipping the foundation in the day time and only using a bit of concealer under my eyes and sunscreen on face set well with compact.
Products used :
1. MAC Select moisture cover concealer NC 45.5
2. Bourjois Rouge hi-tech tint ’84 Rose pixel’
3. Lotus 3-in-1 matte sunscreen (not pictured)
4. Chambor silver shadow compact ‘RR2 Rose pale’
5. The Body Shop face and body brush (for compact)
1. Apply a light moisturizer on face and neck .
2. Apply concealer to the under eyes and sides of the nose, mouth to cover any pigmentation.
3. Apply the lip/cheek stain directly on the apples of the cheeks , blend with fingers in dabbing and circular motions quickly before it sets.
4. Wait for 2-3 mins, than apply sunscreen over face and neck. I use Lotus-3-in-1 matte suncreen- it is very light, gets absorbed into the skin very fast to give a matte finish without leaving white cast on the face.
5. Lastly, apply compact or loose powder all over face and neck especially on the concealed parts to set the concealer.
