Look at Me I’m Glowing…

Ladies (and gents?), I’m here to report that I think I’ve made great strides in my quest to improve my blush application. Remember that post when I told you I didn’t know how? Click here in case you missed it.

Slowly but surely, I’ve tried to apply blush more on the cheekbones (no apple cheeks for me I’m afraid) and building up the colour. And you know what? I think I’ve improved. Take this FOTD I took the other day for my Chanel Cambon lipstick post.

Here I applied shu uemura’s Fairy Pink, a lovey peachy pink that has become one of my favorite blushes.(Love the dome shape, don’t you?)

When I first got this blush, I applied it sparingly. Not sure why given how natural looking this colour is. I’ve tried to take it up a notch¬† applying a bit more than my normal amount. I think it’s pretty natural still and complements the look. What I love about this blush is how easily it blends into the skin, and how easy it is to build up. A few simple taps and voila, instant glowy face. Love it.

While¬† I don’t think I’ve perfected my blush application, I’m improving. And that makes me very excited.

    You looks so fresh faced and lovely my friend! I’m a cheekbone applier too, as my apples are HUGE and I’d look like a ridiculous clown. You are learning the ways of a blush fiend for sure now!

      Slowly but surely! I think I was already a blush fiend, at least in terms of blush accumulation/hoarding ;-)

    I used to be an apple of the cheeks girl but found applying blush on my cheekbones was very slimming and more natural looking. I think it all depends on a person’s features for what looks best. I love love love your lipstick in this look!

    you definitely have an amazing glow in this picture. Love the blush on you :) How long does this formula last on you?

    I’m a blush + bronzer addict. I can’t leave the house without bronzer. Now that I got a tan while on vacation i do blush and highlighter

      I’m testing some of those out too JennySue. They look very similar — interestingly they are both part of the L’Oreal family so no wonder!
