Highlighting With A Blush Isn’t A Totally Crazy Idea
Look like you've spent hours on the beach, but without all that nasty sunburn. With these blushes, you get both the flush and the glow.| June 18, 2018
We all want to put our best face forward, but nailing that bronzer, blusher and highlighter routine for a sculptured face can be pretty daunting. Throw in unending shades and formulas from a single product into the equation, and you have yourself stumped. This is where we come in to help. What if we told you it didn’t have to be that hard?
Products that multi-task are garnering plenty of attention for their versatility and ease of usage. Not only do they appeal to makeup-newbies for ease of application but also to makeup experts for being able to save extra time. Think cheek and lip tints. Highlighters that multi-task as eyeshadows. However, blushes as highlighters? Unheard of. As crazy as it sounds, this combination actually works. After all, the makeup world is all about experimentation, right?
With just enough shimmer, luminosity and colour payoff for that fresh out of the shower flush, these products will leave you with that healthy radiant glow. Just apply it as you would with any regular blush and you’ll get that extra pop of shine. Here, we’ve put together a list of blushes that come in different formulas. If you have combination or oily skin, choose powder blush types, while if you have dry skin, go right into the gel cream blush products. Pick one that suits your skin type, and shine away!
