I’m Not Shy, I Just Like to Blush

Before I was ever “into” wearing and experimenting with makeup, three things that always needed to be on my face whenever I left the house were: mascara, lip gloss, and BLUSH! I don’t know what it is about blush specifically but as soon as I put it on – I feel like I look so much brighter. Although I personally think that you can wear any shade of blush desired as long as you apply accordingly – there are tips for finding the perfect shade for your skin tone.

If You Have….

  • Very fair skin – a pastel baby pink will provide just the right amount of color without overwhelming your face.
  • Light skin – a soft brownish-rose will provide the perfect sun-kissed effect.
  • Olive skin – creamy peachy tones will offset any yellow undertones.
  • Light brown skin – try a vivid hue such as a cool bright pink, just be sure to blend well.
  • Dark skin – any bold shade looks good on you, try a rich magenta for an amazing contrast.

Extra Tips….

  • Always apply a little more blush than you think you need
  • Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks (smile to find them)
  • Cream blush is harder to overdo than powder
