How Glossier’s Cloud Paints Look on Our Managing Editor

My obsession with Glossier all began with a single Cloud Paint. Haze was the very first shade I purchased back in 2017, and like a slow-burn addiction, I found myself building an entire Glossier collection—with Beam, Storm, and Dawn also in my list of owned shades.

Depending on my mood, I just grab the shade I feel like wearing for the day and dab a little on the apples of my cheeks. If I want a monochromatic ensemble, then I also blend some on my lids!

The beauty of the Cloud Paint is that I also mastered the art of applying it without a mirror. I’ve done it way too many times to count, and even so, I always end up with a nice, even, natural-looking flush. It’s easily buildable as well—if I want more color, I just dab a few more and blend away!

Here below are just a few makeup looks I’ve put together using the four different Cloud Paints I own:


When I started my makeup journey, I veered away from anything orange. I thought it wouldn’t suit my fair yet warm skin tone. But to my surprise, after playing around with Paprika’s Matte and Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and pairing it with Glossier’s Cloud Paint in Dawn, it became one of my favorite go-to looks! Orange has become my new obsession.


This particular shade gives the perfect “drunk blush” kind of look. Aside from blending some on my cheeks, I love running my pointer finger (with a bit of the remaining product) on the bridge of my nose. I once lent it to a morena friend, and the color looked so gorgeous on her! Out of all the Cloud Paint shades, I think Storm suits the most skin tones.


I bought this shade first, because I loved the natural pink flush it gave without looking too bright. If I wanted to use more of my pink eyeshadows, Haze was the perfect complement to the whole look.


My favorite shade of all—and definitely the most used! I carry it with me everywhere that the prints on the tube have faded slightly already. I just love how the color of this gives me a beautiful yet subtle sun-kissed glow that instantly adds life to my look. On lazy days where I don’t feel like wearing makeup but have a meeting to attend, I just brush up my brows with Glossier’s Boy Brow in Brown then dab on their Cloud Paint in Beam on my cheeks. It’s a makeup look I can do in less than five minutes!
