Blusher for the Right Type of Skin
"Powder blush is the easiest to use"
By : Tania
Gone are the days when women stuck to one color blusher, usually pinks or peaches. Now days,
blushers come in a whole new variety of colors and different formulations. There are a vast array of clever new
formulas. The main choices are traditional powder, a cream texture, a modern liquid or a gel finish. So there is
certainly one out there to suit your skin type.
Powder blush is the easiest to use. If you prefer this type, choose one that isn't too sparkly or it'll enhance
your wrinkles. Shimmery blushers are far kinder to mature skin as they diffuse fine lines, making the delicate skin
around your cheeks look younger. And as your skin feels drier as you get older, you could try moisturizing cream
formula that gives a flattering sheen to your skin.
All Skin Types
Right type: LIQUID CHEEK
Reason: They're excellent for all skin types and face shapes, as you can use a little
to achieve a natural flush of color, or layer to build up the shading to an intense hue that will last all through
How to apply: They work best on bare cheeks and need to be applied quickly to avoid
mistakes. Apply powder blusher over cheek stains for ultimate staying powder.
Dry or Combination Skin

powder to sit on your dry patches. Also, the texture helps your skin maintain a natural, luminous glow.
How to apply: It's easy to apply on bare skin or over foundation. If you have a round
face don't shade apples of your cheek instead apply it on your cheekbones, slanting towards your temples.
Right type: POWDER
Reason: It's classic, and perfect for achieving dense color coverage. It's the best
texture for contouring your cheekbones, and is ideal for oily skin as it lies well on your skin's surface and
How to apply: Sweep on to your cheeks in a croissant shape for a natural - looking
Right type: GEL OR MOUSSE
Reason: Mousse and gel formulas are great for mature skins and if you want a subtle result. They can be worn alone
on bare skin or layered over foundation, before powder, and are less fiddy to use than liquid stains. All mousse
formulas offer pretty velvety finish and are smooth to apply.
How to apply: When putting on gel or mousse blusher, tap it gently on to your cheeks and blend upwards and outwards
with your fingertips. But don't apply it on top of your make-up as you will not be able to blend it.
