There are a lot of things you need to make your face look radiant. If you are shopping for mineral makeup products, don’t forget to buy blush which is just as important as the foundation.
To do that, we have to go down to the store and buy it. When you step into the store, you will notice that mineral makeup blush comes in different colors. The ideal one to buy should be able to match the color of your cheeks after an aerobic workout.
But why should we choose the color in that condition? This is because we want the shade to mimic your natural coloring and help avoid making your cheeks look artificial or painted.
If you are having a hard time looking for it, why don’t you get yourself all worked up first then try to take a picture of your cheeks so you know what you are looking for when you head to the store. If you don’t have the time to do that, better get the help of a makeup artist who is an expert in finding complementary shade.
For those who are unsure with the recommendation, go and look at yourself in the mirror preferably with natural light around as this will tell how you will look like when you are outside the store.
Remember, the rule of thumb when you buy mineral makeup blush is that the darker your skin tone, the darker the blush should be. If you have fair skin, try getting somewhere along the lines of pink or coral shades. Dark skinned individuals should go for burgundy hues or wine.
Unlike mineral makeup foundation that should only be applied once a day, this is different for blush because your face changes color from the day to the night. During the day, use mineral makeup blush that is light in tone and during the evening, choose one that has a heavier application as this helps create a great dramatic look when you have a night in the town.
So the mineral makeup blush matches with the other things you will be applying on your face, choose the lipstick color that matches the color of the blush. If you have red lips, get a lipstick shade that is either pink or red while those who have rose or pink lips should use similar hues in your blush color.
Now to apply mineral makeup blush, be sure to apply foundation, powder and makeup first before applying this on your face. When you apply it, make sure you are using a full and round brush because this is softer than the brush that comes free with the blush.
When you apply mineral makeup blush on your face, make sure to only use a small amount on the brush and then tap off the excess. Make sure you smile when you apply it so everything is covered from the apple of your cheek down to your cheekbone toward your hairline.
Pay a lot of attention on the outside of your face near your hairline if you have a fuller face. If you have high cheekbones, concentrate the blush in the center of your face to accentuate your bones.
Lastly, blend some mineral makeup blush down your cheek for a little more natural, less dramatic look.
Applying mineral makeup blush is not that hard. It just takes a bit of practice to get the look you want.
