Choosing the Perfect Blush For You

For us women, picking the right shades for everything in our makeup case is not easy. So, I'll provide a little information that hopefully will help you choose just the right blush for your cheeks.

There are so many color options to choose from, from the lightest, palest color to heavy, striking colors. To find one that suits your need, follow these simple rules:

1. Choose the right type of blush based on your skin condition. Powder blush suits all skin type nicely, cream blush suits dry skin better, and gel blush works better on oily skin.

2. What's the purpose of this blush? Work, casual, or glamour? Because there are so many colors to choose from, it's better to know what you're buying this for.

3. For work, choose matte blush with darker tan colors. The color will appear brown on your cheeks, and it will accentuate your cheekbones, giving you more authority in your looks. Choose a shade that's half a shade to a shade darker than your skin tone. Apply it directly under the cheekbones, starting from below the fattest part of our cheek and out.

For casual days, choose matte blush with pink shade into it. If you like to look more natural, choose lighter pink to tan. For more striking effect, use darker pink to red shade. Apply it on the fattest part of the cheekbones, one stroke at a time, from the cheekbone to the corner of your face. The reason for this is so you can see how far you're going with the coloring, you wouldn't want to overdo your cheeks.

If it's for glamorous, fancy night out look, you may want to consider the shimmering blush. I personally never own and not planning to own one of these. I can't use them on any other occasions other than on night out days. With the matte colors, you basically can mix and match them in anyway you like based on your makeup look of the time. Shimmering colors are gorgeous worn on occasions only, and if you're willing to try, I suggest the lighter pink shade, and you can apply it on the inner part of your eyes, upper lip, and forehead.

4. One trick I always do for myself, when I use darker shade blush, the color tend to strike out too much. What I like to do is to reapply the powder over the blush, and applying one more stroke of the blush to my cheeks.

Done, you have no reason to be mindlessly buying blushes anymore. I hope you're all enjoying these tips!
