I Wore Glossier's New Cloud Paint, and a Stranger Told Me I Should Model

In the summer, you can catch me wearing low-key makeup. The sweltering heat forces me to adopt a rather chill makeup routine that doesn't require a ton of upkeep. This is why I've been an OG fan of Glossier's Cloud Paint since its inception. Something about tapping this creamy, gel-based blush on wherever I see fit and the way it blends into my skin so smoothly has always had me hooked. Plus, it has a buildable coverage so I amp it up or keep it toned down depending on how I feel. As you can imagine, I was excited to try the two new shades the brand added to its lineup: Dawn and Storm. 

Dawn is a golden, coral shade that reminds me of the sunset. The brand says it best: "a sunny coral that looks really fresh right on the tops of the cheeks, like you spent the afternoon napping on a boat." Um, goals. Well, I wasn't on a boat while taking this picture, but I sure did feel mighty fine. It's made with collagen, which has a slight plumping effect, and I was into how seamless it looked on my skin.
