All girls love blush! It's what puts the whole picture together right? I always get the question...what is your favorite blush? There is not one answer to this. Different colors look good on different skin tones, depending on your coloring, your hair color, and etc. So my first question is, do you like your blush matt or shiny? If you are generally shiny (in the t-zone), I would recommend a matter blush for daily use. If you are normal to dry, you can use a blush with shimmer, without having your face look oily. There are powder blushes and creme blushes. If you want a dewey look, a creme blush would be perfect. You need to blend it into you cheeks after a liquid or creme foundation. Try not to powder your cheeks afterwards to not take away the shine. You can use some translucent powder to set it in. Below are some of my favorites. I know that we all have favorites; but I have found these colors work great for me and most my clients! If there is something you guys would like to recommend, please feel free! Hope this has been helpful! If there's anything else you would like to know, please feel free to either post it here or my fan page on facebook - Make Up By Lilit.
Here are my favorites:
Pinks: Try to stay in the pink/nude tones with the lips if you are going to do a pink blush. A red lipstick or something on the brown tones will not work.
Lorac: Desire (shimmer)
Bobbi Brown: Soft Pink (matte)
Neutrals: These are colors you can use for any tone lip colors. They have a little bit of pink and a little bit of brown...as weird as that sounds.
Bobbi Brown: Blushed (matte)
MAC: Warm Soul (shimmer)
Peach: This color is perfect for the summer. What I love about it is It looks good lightly or heavily.
NARS: Orgasm (shimmer)
Laura Mercier: Apricot (matte)
Bronzers: Everyone loves bronze cheeks! You can use bronzer on its own, or add a splash of color right in your cheekbones.
NARS: Casino or Laguna (shimmer)
MAC: Matte Bronzers - depending on your color
Highlighters: I usually like to buy matte blushes and add the shimmer myself. This way you can use your blush day or night.
Bobbi Brown: Shimmer Brick (any color)
MAC: Belightful (pink) or Laura Mercier: Star Dust (neutral)
Favorite creme blushes: Stila & MAC. They both glide on perfectly without leaving it spotchy.
