Powder Blush — Find Your Perfect Fit
Do you think you’d best like a hot pink powder blush, a cheek stain, or maybe a tan blush to help warm up your skin tone? Whatever the type you’re looking for, we have found our favorites!
Powder blushes are great for day or night looks to help illuminate your cheekbones and add a touch of color. One of our favorite powder blushes is Clinique’s Fresh Bloom Peony Blend. This color is a subtle, muted brown that will not make your cheeks overly rosy. It is great for girls of any skin tone because it adds a shine and sheer, subtle radiance to highlight your cheekbones. Just sweep this product all over apples of cheeks, the bridge of your nose, and on your brow bones to create a highlighted, luminescent effect.
Another product that we absolutely love is Chanel Joues Contraste in Tumulte. This powder blush may be small but it sure does pack a punch! This product can be used for build-able coverage, so whether you are going from day to night, you can make your makeup look more dramatic by simply applying more. Chanel also creates a silky formula that is light enough to instantly lift and soften the face for a more youthful appearance — what could be better?
The Best Cheek Stains
Cheek stains can be the best product to use for a more natural look or if you are not a fan of powder-based makeup. These creamy formulas will glide onto your skin giving you an instant rosy hint to your cheeks to help brighten your face. One of our favorite cheeks stains is Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Getaway Red. This build-able formula blends so easily into skin that it will feel like you’re not even wearing makeup! This hydrating formula will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth with up to 14 hours of coverage! Apply this easy to use gel with your fingers or a brush — it will surely give you a pop of color!
To help define and highlight your cheekbones, we suggest you use Sonia Kashuk Cream Blush in Petal. This cream blush will easily blend into skin tones effortlessly to give you a beautiful and lasting finish to your makeup look. This never-greasy formula can give you a natural glow, or apply more for a more dramatic look. This product will naturally enhance your face, while not creating an oily or shiny glow.
