MAC Too Fabulous Mineralize Blush Duos
Morning, ladies! I can tell it’s going to be a good day because I’m blushing already.
Blushing like these MAC Mineralize Blush Duos ($23) from the upcoming Too Fabulous collection (in stores March 4).
Corny morning greeting? You betcha, but I happen to really like MAC’s Mineralize blushes, despite their frosty metallic finish. Some ladies (and gents!) aren’t big fans, but I find that I can do different things with them (from a candlelit glow to a blast of cheek color) depending on the brushes I use.
If you decide to give these Mineralize Blush Duos a try, here are four brushes to consider…
Its black and white brush head led to it being nicknamed the “skunk brush,” but this bad boy’s no stinker. It applies a sheer whisper of color onto the cheeks and allows me to build my color and shimmer slowly. TIP: To create a “glazed” cheek look, try spritzing the brush head lightly with MAC Fix+ ($18) before swiping it against the pan.
The baby version of the 187. It’s a little smaller and has a flatter top, which makes it great for precise application to areas like the bottoms of cheekbones. I love using it to layer different blush colors.
I find this brush works allows more of the color of the blush to show through. I do notice that my cheeks look very shimmery when I use this brush, but I sometimes I’m in the mood for that effect.
4. While not really brushes…
Fingers work great in a pinch (LOL!). Use ‘em to apply a wash of shimmer to the apples of the cheeks, cheekbones, eyelids or anywhere you’d like to shimmer.
