Before You Buy Blush
The right blush during the right time of day
is key. But how to pick the perfect blush? Should you go powder,
cream, tint, shimmer or gel? There are many different types out
there so here I run down the 5 main types so you can choose what
kind you need & when (day or night?)!
Powder blush is great for all skin types, but
best for oily skin and anyone looking for long-lasting color
(it's the densest of the blushers).
This type of blush is best applied with the
fingers. It's also dense, but lets your skin show through. Cream
blush is particularly suited for dry skin because of its rich,
Gel blushes provide a sheer glow. They work best
on oily to normal skin and are hard ot spread onto dry skin
since they are fast-drying.
Like gel blush, tints are fast-drying and can
look streaky over foundation. If you're going to use it, blend
it fast and blend it well. Once it's set it won't budge until
you wash your face.
These are great for giving a light gleam to your
cheekbones. These are best for nighttime. The great thing about
shimmers are you can dab them on your forehead, in the bow of
your upper lip or in the inner corners of your eyes. But avoid
your highly wrinkled spots, since these will accentuate them.
