I'm looking for an adjective which describes a complexion. I understand that the term
complexion is primarily used to describe the color of someone's skin. However, I'm looking for a word which says that I find the complexion attractive, without actually specifying any color.
Her complexion was _____
I'd prefer to avoid any generic positive word like
amazing and the like. The word should be (at least somewhat) specifically applicable to complexion.
Oxford lists these collocations:
a dark/pale/light/sallow/ruddy/olive/swarthy/clear complexion
Almost all of them denote some color.
Clear doesn't (arguably), but it doesn't necessarily connote attractiveness.
For the sake of illustration, I tried "her complexion was beautiful" on Google books, which gave has a mere 1500 hits. It doesn't sound right.
Is there a common collocation/turn of phrase I could use here?
