Our Favourite Supermodel Makeup Trick

by Britt Aboutaleb

We always think of supermodel Daria Werbowy when we try to use bronzer instead of blush—probably because it makes us long for razor-sharp cheekbones. But it turns out, we’re not the only ones. “Think Daria on her sailing boat after a week at sea,” says makeup artist Hannah Murray. “Using bronzing powder as blush on tanned skin gives that beautiful, dusty, wind-burnt effect.”

An expertly bronzed Sasha Pivovarova stars in Vogue’s Mikael Jansson-lensed editorial this month and we asked Murray for the scoop. The makeup artist gave the model a full body tan with St. Tropez Tanning Mousse ($32). “Her face needed to be a few shades darker, so I applied a mix of Make Up For Ever’s Face & Body Liquid Makeup ($40) and St. Tropez Bronzing Gel ($35) all over,” says Murray. “Then I used ruddy browns on her cheeks and temples, and a little on the bridge of the nose. Topshop’s Bronzing Powder ($18) in Mohawk, swept under the cheekbones, finished off the skin.”

Murray swears you don’t need Pivovarova’s cheekbones to make this work. Read her tips, above!
