Blusher brushes at the ready ladies; those guys are about to become your best friends.

At Chanel, Tom Pecheux traced glistening peach and peony powder from models’ cheekbones past the temples and onto the lids to create a romantic petal-like flush, while Lynsey Alexander took it one step further at Kenzo, applying glossy disco pink and red lipstick high at the temples and onto the eyes.
