I’ve decided to try and offer up a weekly beauty tip to share with all my fellow gorgeous gals out there. I know…beauty is only skin deep…true beauty is inner beauty…beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I get it. But a major makeup or hair misstep can make a real “inner beauty” look like an “outer ugly.” So, here goes…
I am a firm believer in using both cream blush and powder blush. A cream blush allows for a very natural look with easy, buildable color. It also really helps with staying power and adds a very luminous glow to your cheek area. It’s actually very simple to achieve your “natural flush” through not so natural means. Using your ring finger apply little dots of cream blush, such as Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick (which I own in Rosy Blush), onto the apple of your cheek and then blend LIGHTLY up along your temple. I fully acknowledge that it sounds a little weird to blend blush up along your temple but it really does add some well-placed color and contouring to your face. Now for Step 2. Apply a very light sweeping of powder blush directly over top of the cream blush. And when I say “light”, I mean it ladies. It is VERY EASY to get carried away and wind up looking like you belong on Poison’s “Look What The Cat Dragged In”album cover.
This reminds me of another very important point. For the love of all that is Holy please choose your color wisely.No more bright pinks and mauves. I mean, even Wet n’ Wild has gotten with the picture and updated. If you were wearing power suits or shoulder pads when you purchased your blush…throw it out! ‘Nuff said.
Love to all, Mindy
Great tip Mindy! Thanks! Valerie
