Trend Alert: What's Up With Blush

October 16, 2007 by SheFindsKim

Here's a clearcut case of seeing what you want to see: msn.com posted a recent headline that read, "Ask Bill Nye: How & why do people blush?" I mistakenly read, "Ask Ben Nye [the famous makeup artist]: How do you apply blush?" I think I actually hallucinated. It is no coincidence that I've had a blog piece about blush application techniques in mind for a few days now. Although highlighting your features by sweeping blush on your cheekbones and temple is still around, concentrating color on the apples of your cheeks is in. "Contouring" a la the 80s is out. Look at photos of chubby-cheeked and lovely ladies Mariah Carey and Kimora Lee Simmons to see what I mean. I hear-tell if you pinch your thumb and index finger together for a few seconds, the color the tip of your thumb turns should be the perfect blush color for you. So you could spend hours at the cosmetics counter comparing your fingertips to cheek hues or go with our favorite finds. A safe bet for anyone is Nars Blush in Orgasm. Blondes, redhead's, and brunettes with olive skin get great sun-kissed skin with Benefit's Georgia blush. Think Southern belle Reese Witherspoon or Cali girls Mischa Barton and Rachel Bilson. For darker skin tones: get an ethereal, glow from within complexion with Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals Blush in Laughter. It's sexy and subtle- and fair skinned girls can pull it off too as long as they don't wear it with frosted eyes or lips. Lady who rides the A-train in the A.M., you know who you are. Find these best of blushers at Sephora.com.
