Contouring is dead: The English rose is this summer’s hottest men’s grooming look

Jun 14, 2016

If you already have a rosy complexion or a propensity for blushing, then this look won't be very difficult to achieve. If not, it might be time to invest in some powder blusher or a tint stick. Fake that post-beach glow with a tint stick or powder. Image: Ik Aldama/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images Models at Topman design's Spring/Summer 2017 show during men's fashion week looked decidedly flushed, and it wasn't just around the cheeks. According to a Topman statement, the models' hair and makeup conveys "the look of a boy who has been out all night and slept in the sun all day. "  "He appears slightly sunburnt and his hair has the look of of being freshly showered. " A subtle glow lends a summery look.

This is a look that can be painlessly and harmlessly achieved with a tint stick or powder blush. So, keep lathering on the suncream. Just like contouring, Topman's look isn't just focussed on the cheeks, it extends to the forehead too. Topman's show styled itself as a "celebration of Britain," drawing nostalgic inspiration from Britain's seaside towns like Margate, Torquay and Blackpool.

At Sibling's SS17 show, models sported a boyish glow that — just like Topman's look — extended above the eyebrows. Sibling models rocked a bolder glow. Image: Guillaume Roujas / NOWFASHION Sibling's look took its inspiration from across the pond, from Miami and California's poolside scenes. Just like Topman, Sibling extended the blush above the eyebrows. Image: Guillaume Roujas / NOWFASHION Poolside chic à la Miami. Image: Guillaume Roujas / NOWFASHION Off the catwalk, the rosy glow was present, if not considerably subtler. The look was pared back and natural, and grooming limited to bare essentials. The look on the street was a more subtle affair. Image: andrew cowie / mashable  Topman's just-showered look was also spotted on the streets of London. Slicked back hair was also a prominent look. Image: Andrew cowie / mashable  So, if you've already got a glow to your cheeks, then — good news — you're bang on trend. If you want to get the look, it might be time to invest in a tint stick or powder blush. Have something to add to this story? Share it in the comments.
