united colours of blush
So my bias is joining us again today. I wanted to just warn you that many of my colour suggestions re: blush will be for darker Asian skin tones - usually shades in the brown, coral, or plum families.
That said, today I’m going to share an insider tidbit: every company has a colour or two that universally suits women of different races. Here are my top three:
- Georgia by Benefit. It doubles as a face powder. This warm peach warms the cheeks and leaves a sweet sweep of colour.
- Flush Cheek Stain by tarte. I really love this. It’s a gel blush that leaves a natural radiant, flush (hence the name). It’s alcohol and oil free and has a soft scent of fruit (the blush contains the company’s trademarked fruit complex – a mixture of five superfuits – goji, acai, marcacuja, acerola and pomegranate).
- Orgasm by NARS. We (as in me, myself and I) love everything NARS, including this lovely rose shimmer. It doesn’t hurt that the name is also universally appealing.
It’s always good to have a wide collection of blushes so that you can dress according to your mood and/or adapt to your changing pigment.
It's getting hot out there and soft pale pinks don’t work as well when the sun has left you a shade or two darker.
