You know how all girls have one beauty item that they will not leave the house without? I have lots of friends that would say lip gloss, bronzer or a swipe of mascara. Although I am a big fan of those, well except lip gloss, I just can't stand gooey lips! My never-leave-the-house-without-it-on is definitely blush. Here's the thing about blush, it just makes you look brighter. I will have clients decide that they want to change their hair color and the first thing they always say when I'm done is, "I just need a tan now". Umm...no. You just need some blush.
I am always on the hunt for the perfect blush color. The problem with my skin is that any blush that has a brown undertone makes me look like my cheeks are dirty by the end of the day. I have to find blush that has a cool undertone. My go-to is always Bobby Brown Pale Pink. Let me tell ya, there is nothing pale about this color. It is bright! However, you can go as light or heavy as you want depending on your makeup mood that day. This past Fall/Winter I switched to MAC Fever. Love this color, but it has to be applied just so or you can look like you got a hickey on your face. This summer I've been going a little lighter with MAC Dame.
There are two important things to know about blush application. The first thing is to use the right brush. My favorite is the large angled contour brush by MAC. It's the perfect size and you can use it in any situation.
There you have it. Next time I see you I will totally be doing a cheek check. Everyone should wear blush. No exceptions. You'll thank me later.
