Let me help you find your perfect blush.

Meet my favourite blush of the moment that got me through the winter...Mac Powder Blush in Pinch Me.

Summer is on its way which is the perfect excuse for a new blusher- follow my guide and let me do the hardwork for you! Gone are the days of just powder blush and now there is much more choice.

Let me introduce you to;

Gel Blush

  • Long lasting.
  • Subtle touch of colour.
  •  Very sheer but buildable start with a little and build up until you reach the colour you want.
  • Recommended for fair skintones.
  • Set with a powder or it will wear off oily skin.
Apply after liquid foundation using your fingers- remember to use before powdering or you will find it difficult to blend.

Cream Blush
  • Very easy to blend
  • Gives a gorgeous glow ( for a shimmery effect add a highlighter!)
  • Recommended for dry skin.
Apply with your fingertips for a natural result or synthetic brush rather than a natural bristle brush as it won't absorb the pigment.

Stain Blush

  • Give more of a flush result than bright blush causing a very natural finish.
  • Recommended for oliy skin.
  • Dry very fast .
Apply with your fingers over a creamy-based foundation as a stain blush will make your powder rub off. Blend very quickly as they dry fast.

Powder Blush

  • Great to use with Bronzer to contour.
  • Quick and easy to apply.
  • Very buildable.
  • Great in the heat as it doesn't melt off.
  • Recommended for all skin types but make sure you prep your skin first otherwise it can cause an uneven look as dry or oily skin can hold onto the pigment more.
Apply with a brush after you have set your foundation.

Hope this helps!
