Hello Gorgeous Gals,
Ah blush, such a favorite spring beauty item and a fantastic way to perk up ‘tired of winter’ complexions. With so many brands, shades and finishes to choose from where does a girl begin? Do you want a ‘pow’ of color, barely there, shimmer, matte, powder, cream…goodness, see what I mean? Find a picture in a magazine of a gal wearing a cheek shade you like, bring it to the store. This picture will help them to visualize along with you, while working specifically with your features and skin-tone.
Now be sure to stay open minded…as formulas and tools play a big part in the result. (back of the hand test is never a true representation of any makeup item) Try it while in store, the staff can show you a trick or two and the right tool to make it work just for you. Above all else; remember it’s only makeup, have fun!
A few of my fave formulas:
#1 ELF Bronzer Blush Duo ($3US) a dupe of NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo
Revlon Matte Blush (approx $10CAD) Barely there color, perfect w/smoky eye & nude lip
A little goes a long way… $29CAD @ Sephora
Blush is a such great way to perk up the complexion for any season.
What’s your fave blush brand and shade?
Until Next Time ~Melody xo
