This Hairdresser Identified Skin Cancer on a Client: What to Look Out For

  This Hairdresser Identified Skin Cancer on a Client: What to Look Out For Skin cancer can be hard to spot in this particular area.Hairstylist Sharon Lupo knew something was up when she noticed a new, unusual spot on regular client Mary Rahilly's scalp. “It was almost a discolored spot,” said Lupo. “I knew I had to tell her.” Lupo encouraged Rahilly to go get the area checked out by a dermatologist, so Rahilly made an appointment right away.

As warm spring days arrive, and TikTok highlights the face-transforming powers of a hint of rouge, there's a lot of renewed intrigue around how to apply blush. When it comes to making it look like it’s your own natural, rosy glow, it must appear as if you “just left SoulCycle,” insists makeup artist Sir John, the man behind Beyoncé's equal parts luminous and bulletproof makeup. From creating a supercharged canvas to choosing an easy, melts-right-in formula, here, Sir John and other in-demand pros share their secrets for how to apply blush and achieve a flush-from-within finish.

Create a Dewy Canvas

When it comes to getting HD camera-ready, all experts agree that smooth, hydrated skin is essential. Massaging in a moisturizer, or a hydrating primer if mattifying is a priority, is a non-negotiable first step. For “maximum hydration,” makeup artist Naoko Scintu recommends beginning with a sheet mask, such as the Dr. Jart+ Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution, as another option. But Sir John likes to take things a step further by pressing another layer of moisturizer onto the face after foundation, so the blush really vanishes into the skin. “The best time to apply blush is when the skin is still wet,” he explains. “The extra layer of hydration makes it softer.”

Choose a Smooth, Shade-Matched Formula

“Use blush shades that are no more than two to three shades darker than your natural [flushed] tone, otherwise, you will find it difficult to blend,” says Scintu. For more dimension, he likes to use a darker hue on the inner cheeks, then graduate outward with a lighter complementary option. In terms of color, fair and cool complexions should look to more muted shades, like baby pink or peachy pink, while deeper, warmer complexions can go brighter. So long as the skin was prepped to be smooth and supple, when it comes to texture, a cream, like Glossier's Cloud Paint or Rare Beauty's Melting Cream, or liquid stain blush, such as Benefit’s Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain, tend to be best for a second-skin look. “They give the most natural, non-cosmetic effect, adding an awoken quality to the skin,” says makeup artist Romy Soleimani, who counts Tracee Ellis Ross and Cara Delevingne as clients. However, for Beyoncé’s “Teflon face,” Sir John always adds a veil of powder for additional color payoff and staying power.

I Tried This DIY Lash Extension Kit and My Lashes Have Never Looked Better

  I Tried This DIY Lash Extension Kit and My Lashes Have Never Looked Better Prepare to throw out all your strip lashes and glue.But then I started hearing some great things about Lashify's DIY lash extension system. I was excited to try it, but honestly a little nervous, considering my previous lash disasters. But I’m so glad I did because the results were game-changing. My lashes have never looked better, and I've finally achieved my perfect no-makeup look. After trying Lashify for one week, I threw away all my old strip lashes and tubes of glue, and made room for my new Lashify Control Kit.

Blend, and Blend Some More

“I like to start in with cream blush on my fingers so you can really feel your cheeks, with an added bonus of creating a natural flush through circulation,” explains Soleimani, adding that she’ll use a small fluffy brush, like Westman Atelier’s Baby Blender brush, to blend the edges in a circular motion. After application, she suggests concealing the area around the sides of the nose to further diffuse discoloration. “It will help make you look like you’re naturally blushing, as opposed to blush sitting on top of your skin,” she says. In the interest of capitalizing on a glassy complexion, Sir John uses a plush sponge blender, like L’Oréal’s Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, before administering whisper-light strokes that “kiss” the skin with a brush for the powder, working it from the apples of the cheeks outward, then toward the temples and down to the center of the chest for all-over warmth.

Scared of Blush Because You Have Rosacea? We've Got You

  Scared of Blush Because You Have Rosacea? We've Got You The other day, I was describing my everyday makeup routine to a skin-care professional. "Tinted SPF 50, concealer, bronzer, cream blush, and mascara," I listed. She replied, "Blush? You still wear it even when you have rosacea?" As someone who has always loved cream blush, forgoing it because I have rosacea is something that had never really occurred to me. But it makes total sense.

Finish With Luster

Because cream highlighter takes blush to the next level, when Soleimani uses RMS Beauty Living Luminizer on the high planes of the face, she also infuses it with a skin-care emollient, like Weleda Skin Food, for extra glow. Scintu blends a dewy elixir, like Glow Recipe's Watermelon Glow Dew Drops on the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose for a light-catching strobe. For a fresh, final layer that sets everything into place, Sir John mists on Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir, a cocktail of toning rose extract, rejuvenating rosemary oil, and hydrating orange flower water. “You want the skin to be as supple as possible,” he says. “It adds more luster.”
