There are different ways to get our cheeks flushed. Although most women use powder blush, I love how cheek tints and creams blend naturally into skin.
I find that powder blush sometimes sits on the skin and looks obvious, while tints and creams create a more natural glow.
As the skin matures, it needs a product that will stay longer and not pile into fine lines or wrinkles. The secret is in the proper application and color of tint.
When picking a shade, choose the one that looks the most natural on your skin, asif you are not wearing makeup and just have a healthy flush. Before applying blush, I suggest using moisturizer first before foundation to prevent dry skin.
Dab a small dot of blush on the end of your fingers, smile and spread on the apples of your cheeks.
Here are my five personal blush faves. Their colors may not suit your skin tone, but trust me, there is always one that will. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
Get that flush
Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon,available in Adora
This product blends easily on my skin and I love that it is buildable. It is matte and oil-free. Just a little dot does the job.
Make Up For Ever in 220,available at Make Up For Ever SM Fashion Hall
When I’m on the beach, this is my go-to shade. I like that it is in the dark nude-peach side so it gives my tan that extra oomph. I also use it when I have nude lips so as to keep the focus on my eyes.
Nars Multiple in Siam,available in Glorietta
I love its creamy texture, which glides evenly and is actually a lipstick and eye shadow, too. This is a product I use when I have no time to do my makeup and want the focus on my cheeks. I also leave it in my bag during days when I need to rushand can’t decide whether I want to use just blush or lipstick or both.
Chanel Le Blush in Inspiration,available in Rustan’s
I’ve been using this product so much it may be one of the few I will actually finish. It’s small and flat enough so you can stick it in your pocket or your smallest purse. It spreads evenly and will go from day to night since it’s buildable. It also gives my skin that radiance I want the whole day.
