How to Choose the Perfect Blush
Makeup artists suggest that if you’re going for a natural look, you need a blush that has undertones similar to your own face skin colour, just like with foundation. Test some product on the apples of your cheeks to see if it suits your natural lip colour. If it looks unnatural and odd, try a different shade. Although, for an edgy look, go for a blush with the opposite undertones.
Warm undertones include such shades as tangerine, coral, peach, and brown; cool undertones are berry, raisin, fuchsia, and pink shades.
What to Avoid While Choosing a Blush
First of all, the formula of blush is very important. If you have dry skin, avoid matte products; instead, use mineral or glowy blushes to add some radiance to your face. Matte blush is perfect for oily skin, so your cheeks don’t look greasy by the end of the day.
Second of all, just like any other makeup and skincare product, a high-quality blush should consist of natural or organic ingredients, since those are more nutrient-rich and contain more minerals and vitamins.
Don’t be afraid to use blush more often – it’s a nice little addition to your makeup look that also gives your facial skin a healthy glow. The blush of today is just a pinch of colour that feels light and dewy!
