It seems like a funny thing to write that blush is everywhere these days…but in all honesty, it kind of is. The color (also known to many as rose gold) has transcended gender lines and is making it’s way through the fashion, art, home and beauty worlds this summer.
Stylists are putting male models in blush colored t-shirts for insurance ads, just as beauty brands are decorating eyelids in high-end campaigns. Cut collages, ribbed packaging, shimmering surfaces and natural patterns are the markers of variation, and it’s almost fun spotting new interpretations. Here are a few examples that hop between continents and genres, proving the sophisticated seasonal staying power of this minimalist hue.
