Yes, it’s November. Which means summer is officially gone and for most of us, so is that healthy sun-kissed complexion. Before choosing a bronzer that leaves you looking unnatural, try an affordable blush. Blush adds warm color to the cheeks and imparts a healthy glow to your whole face. It draws attention up to your eyes, emphasizes eye color, and creates illusions about facial contours. Here’s what to look for and how it’s done:
- Choose the color to coordinate with skin, lip color and clothing color. Select muted tones, never bright. Blush doesn’t need to expensive. Drug store brands are an excellent choice.
- Using a soft brush, apply blush in an upward and outward direction over your cheek bone. This is where many get into trouble. Before applying blush, touch your cheekbone with your fingers. This is where the blush should be applied. Many apply blush too low or too close to the nose, which doesn’t bring attention to those dazzling eyes.
- Blend smoothly with the brush or a dry sponge. Avoid circles or streaks of blush. We’re not going for the melodrama’s damsel in distress look here.
There’s no need to look as pale as it is outside. Bring on the winter! You’ll be ready with just a bit of blush.
