Blush Game

Posted on: August 1, 2019

As we continue to savour these long sun filled days it’s the perfect time to brighten up our makeup.  Summer is the time for looking fresh and bringing that bright and healthy glow.  No look is complete without blush as it adds definition to your face, warms up your complexion and highlights your cheeks.  A must have are soft and pastel pink shades as they are easily wearable everyday.  They give a very natural and subtle colour to your cheeks.  Try shades like ‘Dahlia’ by Vasanti or ‘Pink’ by Maybelline for a “my cheeks but better” look.  A colour that can easily be overlooked is coral and peach but it is actually a shade that is flattering on every skin tone.  “Luminoso” by Milani is my all time go-to shade, with its soft texture, it blends like butter.  This is the season for a strong glow game.  For that “lit-from-within” look go for shimmer as blushes with iridescent formulas will leave you looking luminous all day.  For a more sun-kissed look, choose blushes with bronze tints such as ‘Nude to me’ by “NYX” and shades from the ‘Color icon Bronzer’ line by Wet N Wild.  These shades will really warm up your complexion and the shimmer will give you a goddess glow.  For an extra pop, add on some highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones.  The highlighters from the ‘MegaGlo’ line, also by Wet N Wild, are extremely pigmented and so a little goes a long way.

Don’t forget to blend out your blush so that you are not left with an unnatural patch of color on your cheeks.  So while your at Rexall selecting blushes for your makeup arsenal , make sure to pick up some soft brushes by ‘Real Techniques’ for flawless results and keep blushing.
