Warm Blush

Talk about multi-tasking! Blushes have the amazing ability to stand out, yet blend in at the same time. Take the orange shade Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon wore to the NAACP Image Awards in Beverly Hills, CA. The hue warmed up her complexion, but didn’t overpower the faint hints of shimmer worn on her eyes and lips. Bright colors have a gorgeous, striking effect against deep skin tones like Nilon’s, but if you have a fair complexion, opt for a less-saturated version. A dusting of matte powder can usually fix a heavy handed application, but sheer tones with an airy consistency are easier to layer and blend. If you think you’ve picked up too much product on your brush, give it a quick tap on the inside of your wrist to remove the excess before swirling the color onto the apples of your cheeks.
