Flushed cheeks, plumped lips and bright eyes? The big O isn't just for the bedroom...

When it comes to naturally gorgeous makeup with a sexy twist, there's nothing better than an orgasmic glow.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Miranda Kerr, Rihanna, Nicole Scherzinger? Their faces are all saying YES to the look too!

But of course, even if you've spent all night rolling around with Ryan Gosling, that fresh-faced, flush-cheeked look is only ever going to be temporary.

So ladies, it's time to faux that big O glow for wowzer makeup all day long...

STEP 1: You're aiming for fresh, dewy skin, so after prepping your face (cleanse, tone, moisturise, you know the deal), apply a radiance boosting primer, followed by foundation with light reflecting particles. Our faves at the moment? Pixie Brightening Primer, £19.50, and Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation, £25.

STEP 2: You want to really open and brighten your eyes to recreate that post-sex sparkle. So cover up any dark circles with concealer (remember to set it place with a dusting of loose powder), curl those lashes and keep any smoky eyeshadow moving upwards and outwards.

STEP 3: Blush. This look is ALL about the blush for those flushed cheeks. You'll be recreating the effect of blood rushing to surface, so opt for a pinky shade blended over the apples of your cheeks and out towards your cheekbones (but not actually on them). A creamy blush like Smashbox's O-GLow, £21, will give a second skin effect, while the legendary Nars blush in Orgasm pink £21.50, is designed to suit every skin tone.

STEP 4: Lips. To recreate a kiss-swollen pout, pump up your lips with a rosy balm or gloss like the Dior Addict Lip Maximiser Collagen Active Lips Gloss £21 (mouthful), or Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker gloss, £9.

So what do you think? Fancy giving the faux O glow a try?
