So I just wanted to confirm (as promised) that the "Goya look" I mentioned yesterday is totally attainable and yes, it's a-okay to put pink powder all over your face.
I went to Sephora today to double-check my strong hunch that sweeping blush from your cheekbone down to your jawline and to your ear is cool. (And I don't mean in an Eighties cool way, but in a genuinely pretty way.) The key is to choose a blendable, extremely sheer shade. If you can find a color that is barely noticeable on your skin, then that's the right one.
Two products that I recommend are Smashbox Soft Lights in Prism ($28) and Benefit's Dandelion Face Powder ($28). You can dust the color all over, only leaving the area above your lip and nose bare. The look is angelic and beautiful. For a more pronounced effect, you can add a pinch of Smashbox blush in Heartbreak, which is a bit darker, or your regular favorite blush to the apples of your cheeks too.

Well, au revoir! Hope you're having a lovely week!
