This week's Makeup Wars focuses on the must have item of the spring and summer. Blush. Blushes are everything right now and I can't just pick one. Clinique, Bombshell, It Cosmetics...which is your favorite?
Right now, I'm loving slightly sculpted cheeks with no blush or with just a pop of bright color. Think old school Ralph Lauren ads for the latter. A defined cheek with serious highlights and bronzer is the perfect look for a work party or event. It commands attention and demands that you be taken seriously. Or opt for a quick pop of color to look playful and full of youth. You can't go wrong with either.
Here are my favorites for both looks.
Coral is now and will forever be the color of summer cheeks. You just can't go wrong.
Clinique Cheek Pop In Ginger Pop (b) is a sheer pop of coral that is perfect for warmer skintones.
Be A Bombshell in Love Me (a) in a bright pop of coral that leans slightly cool.
It Cosmetics Vitality Powder Cheek Stain (c) wears until you take it off. It's the first cheek stain in a powder!
Sculpting your face is an art form. That doesn't mean you can't take a breezier approach and wear it daily. A light touch and the right products are all you need!
Tarte Cosmetics Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer Park Ave Princess (e) is an easy-to-use stick that allows you to quickly contour and blend. This blends beautifully and never looks too dark. This is also very forgiving, as it needs to be set to stay in place.
Be A Bombshell One Stick in You Glow Girl (h) is a great, shimmering pearl highlighter. Use this on your cheeks, eyes or even your lips.
Sonia Kashuk Illuminating Bronzer (d) was one of my favorite bronzers last year. This sheer bronze goes on like a thin veil of sunshine and good times.
L'Oreal True Match Powder (f) is a great contour if you really want to get to business. Choose the True Match powder in a darker skin tone for easy but effective contouring.
It Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Aging Creme Illuminizer (g) stays on for hours and hours, unlike most other highlighters. It's perfect if you want your skin to look lighter in areas, but not scream shimmer.
