blushing

Spring is on the way reminding me that adventures are to be had, and fresh love is in the air.  A fresh face with a just a touch of color is one of my go-to favorite looks and can we worn by any girl to create a look of radiance. I’ve picked out some of my favorite products for you, and tips on how to use them for your face shape to help you create your personal blushing beauty look.

Illuminators

Use Jose Miran to ad a bit of shimmer to your look and the appearance of light dancing on your face. I like to cocktail a pea size amount with my moisturizer in the morning and apply all over my face.  Another option is to use it as a highlight applied to your cheeks, brow bone, cupid bow and eyelids to give the skin a bright alive feel. You can also use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Golden Radiance which gives you a brightened complexion with coverage. For areas that have too much shine use a little bit of loose powder to buff down the shine.

Cheeks

Use a soft blush brush to apply cream blush to give a softer more natural appearance. Here is how to apply blush according to your face shape.

Round Face

Apply blush to the cheekbones in a sweeping up motion up and away to create more contour on the face. Avoid applying directly onto the cheekbones as this will just round out the face.

Square

Apply blush below the cheekbones to define them and then sweep up and back towards ears. This will soften the angles on the face.

Heart

Apply blush below the apples of the cheeks and blend down. This will square out the face.

Oval

Use any of these blush applications for an oval face as it is the most versatile of all face shapes.

Lips

Keeping the cheek and the luminous skin as the focus in this look is essential. Use a cleaned mascara wand and some lip balm to scrub off any dry skin (your tooth brush works great too for this!) With the lips just a touch of color brings it all together. Use the tip of your finger to dab on a bit of color and press lips together. If too much use a napkin to dab off a bit leaving just a kiss of color.

Here are some of my favorite outfit picks for you to wear with this look. XO
