Today’s fave takes us into the realm of a category of beauty products that I resisted for a VERY long time. Blush. I have a fair bit of hyperpigmentation in my cheeks and I couldn’t really get behind the notion of adding more color on top of that. Plus, while I am all for a dramatic eye or lip, I am in perpetual fear of looking too ‘made-up’ when it comes to the rest of my face.
Now, having finally jumped on the blush bandwagon, I gravitate toward more subtle, neutral colors. In particular, nothing too warm (i.e., orange-toned), which can look fabulous on many people but tend to look, as they say, ‘muddy’, on my redness-prone fair skin.
Fitting the bill to a T is the ELF studio blush in Mellow Mauve. A subtle, cool-toned beauty that adds just the right flush of color for day and can be built up for a slightly more sculpted effect at night. And, what’s more, it costs $3 at Target or online!
What’s your favorite way to blush 😉 ?
