Do brightly coloured blushes scare you off?
If so check this out and you might change your mind.
This blush is so bright you need to pull out your sunnies just to look at it. It is of course by Nars as the delightful photo shows. The name...Exibit A, have a look.
This actually looks a little more muted than it actually is!
How would I describe the colour - An extremely bright tangerine.
Who would wear this? - I would recommend this for olive to dark skin tones, oranges always look gorgeous on these colour skins so rock it.The darker the skin the better I say!
How to apply it? - Sparingly! no seriously this is so well pigmented a tiny bit is needed. Dip the tip of your brush in powder and gently swirl on the cheekbones up towards the hairline.
Tip# Blend extremely well, a good blush brush will be your best friend.
Here I have illustrated how strong the colour is to show you how little is needed.
This is just a regular swatch and my word it is powerful, look at the next picture to see how far the colour blended yet it still looks strong.
Yes this is just that smidgen of powder blended on my hand. Crikey right!
I must stress that unless you are going for an editorial look this is not good for pale skins
1. It is too orange
2. It will wash you out
At the moment I am a little paler than I normally am but I have applied a small amount on my cheeks to show you how you can achieve a subtle effect if you are light handed.
I have my eye on a gorgeous bright pink blush by Smashbox can't think of the name so any of you have bright blushes?
I love all your comments and opinions.
