So I know many of you don't wear blush deeming it unnecessary to your overall makeup look. I'm going to shed some light on what blush is all about.

Blush is applied to the apples of the cheeks and swept back towards the hairline and even swept up to the temple. Always start out with a little blush on your brush and build upon the color and intensity. Blush comes in many forms: powder, mineral, stick, cream, liquid, stains, mousse....pick your choice. Some formulas are better for certain skin types than others but all work well.

When foundation is placed on the face it can sometimes "wash" out your face. Hiding the natural contours of your face and for fair skinned women blocking the natural hue of how your face flushes(blushes).

Blush brings definition and color back to your face. If used with a light hand it can give you a wonderful cheeky glow and if used to heavily you'll look more avant garde than like your normal self. For an editorial shoot, stage play or costume that's fine but for everyday wear probably not.

Use blush to add definition to your face

Creative way blush can be used on an editorial photo shoot

Blush : Avant Garde style!

I initially didn't wear blush thinking because I was of a darker skin tone it was unnecessary. Just because when I blush it isn't as noticeable doesn't mean I do NOT blush at all. I find a nice peach, apricot, terra-cotta  or orangey blush looks amazing on darker and deeper skin tones. Even brick red, plums and darker pinks can add a nice hint of color. Mixing both an orangey blush with a colored one can add dimension and look more natural.

Now as a self proclaimed blush wearer I've never been happier. It's actually fun to pick "what color cheeks will I have today" and finding the right blush to compliment your overall makeup look. For instance, with a bold eye look and nude lip you may go for a nude cheek color or with a nude eye and bold lip you may go for a bold cheek color! The choice is yours!

There are many amazing blushes from different cosmetic companies. My top blushers are from Black Radiance and La Femme. Highly pigmented and inexpensive blushes with the prettiest colors! Check out my Youtube video on how to apply blush and reviews on the blushes mentioned above. The black radiance blushes even made my top ten of 2010 list Youtube video! 


So blossoms regardless of your skin tone, fair or deep, the next time you do your makeup, smile and place a little blush on! Trust me you'll love it

Until Next Time,

Later Blossoms
