Choosing the Right Blusher for the Right
Type of Skin
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 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 also try moisturizing cream formula that gives a flattering
sheen to your skin.
All Skin Types
Right type: LIQUID CHEEK STAINS
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 the day.

applied quickly to avoid mistakes. Apply powder blusher over

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 reduces shine.
How to apply: Sweep on to your cheeks in a croissant shape
for a natural - looking flush.
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 really 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.
