Blushing Beauties!


    Kelsey and I embarked on a trip to LA back in November together and attended a MAC Cosmetics Class. It was refreshing to be around people as passionate about the make-up industry as we are! One of the main topics was highlighting and blush applications. So instead of keeping these master class tips a secret we thought we would share them with you.

Blushing Beauties:

Finding the right blush for a lot of women can be tough. With so many different products and tools to pick from, a lot of women just skip this step all together. However it is a step to your daily routine that makes an impact. It allows you to look healthy and awake, and keeps you from looking too washed out by your foundation.

How many different kinds of blush are there?

Depending on your application preference all three kinds of blushes look great. Creams can be easier to blend and keep from looking to dry on older skin.    Creams can be applied with your fingertips, a sponge, or a synthetic bristle brush.

Powders are your most commonly used blush and can be applied quickly without much work to blend them in. Powders can be used with both a synthetic or natural hair brush.

A stain forces you to work quickly, but stays true to it's color all day.

So what would work best for you?
Creams work best for older women because they look much dewier and they don't settle in fine lines. 
Stains are great for anyone who is quick at blending and may not have time to touch up during the day.
Powders are great to have on hand and make for quick applications in the morning but also make blending multiple shades together easier and faster.


Tiffany J. MAC senior artistTo make your make-up extra durable, alternate between creams/liquids and powders. If you do a liquid base, than apply a powder blush. Tiffany J. a MAC senior artist, says that by doing so, your makeup can adhere to one another better, making it last longer throughout the day. (Tiffany J.)

Quick tips that make a big impact:

            Always apply blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep gently up the sides of the sides of your face. People see you from Both the front and your profile so don't make your blush come to a hault as soon as you turn.

           When contouring use a color that has a blue or ash undertone. This will bring out the real colors in a shadow allowing you to look sculpted and not like you have on miles of bronzer.
           Add a hint of glam to your cheeks and dust a bit of sheer-white or pearlized powder on your cheekbones and blend into your sculpting powder. This will make your cheekbones look high and make your face appear thin. 

So go on and get Glowing this Holiday Season,  may your face be Marvelous and Bright!
