Flaunt your finest flush!
A good makeup look is a sum of many parts; all the elements must compliment each other to achieve the complete look. While the lips and the eyes are important, it's the cheeks that help bring everything together.
The right shade of blush will help take years off of one's face. Add the right amount of colour to a pale face and you can create the illusion of healthy, younger-looking skin. Many women from our part of the world feel blushes are unnecessary but they could not be more wrong.
Warm, dusky skin-tones benefit incredibly from the right shade of blush as it adds just the right amount of glow and takes the pallor out of one's skin. In this regard, blushes truly are the unsung heroes and they are finally getting the love and attention that they so richly deserve!
Now that winter is here, blush colours need a switchover. This season the trend is shifting towards a natural flush. A soft haze of light pink or peach will bring that natural flush to your face.
This can be achieved using the shades one already owns. But be sure to go easy on how much you apply. Also, choose bright but sheer shades that lets skin peek from underneath.
A powder or cream formula is perfect but make sure the texture is light and not heavy. And do not forget to blend, blend and blend! This look is perfect for the daytime.
For those enchanting winter gatherings and parties, dial up the glamour quote a notch. Opt for slightly deeper, jewel-toned shades to complement the rest of your night-time makeup routines. Again, application is key. You do not want any streaks or harsh lines.
Use a fluffy, tapered brush to attain smooth results. Top it off with a bit of shimmery highlight and you are set to be the belle of every ball this winter!
