Don't Blush - You Need These Colors On Your Cheeks
Blush is often considered a non-essential. It's the makeup item most women don't wear and the product other women would give up if there was some cruel reason they had to. But here in the land of VIBE Vixen, we believe in the beauty of blush and we want you to get some in your life which is why we are recommending the following shades to kick your summer blushing off right.
Don't be intimidated by how bright or bold a color looks in the photo or in the package when you head out to pick it up (which we hope you will), we would never steer you wrong. With that said, let's get too it. Here are five spring/summer blushes you need for your cheeks
Orgasm is the Nars shade everyone knows about but we want to introduce you to another color from this company: Liberté. This spring 2012 burnished apricot shade has women of every color raving about it this season because it really is perfect for any complexion, which is why it's been InStyle's "Best Beauty Buy” for the past two years.
This plumy rose shade is a part of Tarte's Amazonion Clay collection which promises 12 whole hours of staying power. You don't get that much longevity with other blushes and this deep shade is the perfect choice for a bronze look that's more on the pink dew side as opposed to oranges, peaches, and golds.
Cream blushes are really the best bet for summer dew glows but sometimes with the humidity and moisture in the air, they tend to make your face look more oily and shiny than you like. Poppy is a great maroon-colored shade that's not greasy and because it's thicker and very pigmented you only need to use a little, which means it will last a while too.
This is a great shade because it's sheer so you don't have to freak out about having too much color but this shade also has some shimmer to it which will give you a nice natural glow no matter the skin tone.
We'll give you two at the end since these shades are so great together. You can't go wrong with a nude on your cheeks; it gives just enough color to provide a little flush but not so much it's overwhelming. The peach shade in this collection is the safe choice, but if you want to take a dare, this long-lasting, matte-finish pink shade will make your cheeks rosy for the whole day.
