Rise and shine, morning glories! Aren’t you glad it’s Friday? I sure am.
What did you do last night? I just chillaxed on the couch watching The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo. I secretly want the matchmaker’s job!
Whenever Patty — she’s the matchmaker — holds a casting for new potential dates for her clients, I always check out their makeup.
Last night it was blush. It can make such a huge difference to your look. Here are some of my favorite blush posts from the past few months.
Benefit Coralista Blush Has Got Me Purring
“Coralista’s soft, shimmery coral-pink looks neutral on my cheeks, and that’s weird because most coral blushes usually look warmer on my skin tone. I’m thinking it has something to do with the cooler pink tones, like they mellow out the warmer corals. Both warm and cool beauties ought to be able to work this blush with equal flava.”
Blush for Beginners
“Here’s another attempt at a video. This one’s about blush, and I apologize because I let Tabs do the editing. I think he got a little carried away.”
Benefit Dallas Blush Gives Cheeks a Peachy Glow
“Despite wanting a sturdier box, I really like Dallas blush a lot. I’m giving her prime retail space on top of my dresser so she’s available when I need quick color on my cheeks before running out the door.”
Blush Technique: The Bounce
“Rise and shine, morning glories. It’s Friday, yea! Are you ready for the weekend? In this short video I talk about one of my standby blush application techniques, codenamed The Bounce.”
Powder Blush: A Pink Brown Flush for Spring
“As the only blush released with Chanel’s Spring 2009 Bohemian Fantasy Collection, Fandango, a shimmery pink and brown, applies with intense color that really brings out the brown in my skin. To avoid dark, muddy cheeks, I layered it slowly with a MAC 187 skunk brush, trying to use a light touch.”
Blush Technique: The Swirl
“A few days ago I showed one way to apply blush using a technique called The Bounce (bounce, baby!). Here’s a second method. This one’s nicknamed The Swirl.”
Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Top Blusher Brush: A Budget Friendly Beast
“BOW DOWN before the mighty Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Top Blusher Brush. Marvel at its multi-tasking prowess and how it applies blushes and foundations with ease. And don’t be surprised if you find yourself trembling — with glee! — at the cash register. Not only is this brush amazing, but it’s also cheap — $14.99. Holla!”
