Let me be honest, I didn't used to be a blush girl because I thought only white women could wear it. Which of course, was a huge misconception. More and more, beauty companies are taking women of all skin tones into consideration when creating their products- blush included. So it is more than possible to find the perfect shade(s) of blush for you, Queen.
So what blush am I exactly referring too? The Elf Cosmetics blush palette! This was a spontaneous purchase for me at my local Wal Mart for only $3 (price may vary depending on your location)! And to my surprise, has become a staple within my full coverage makeup regimen. The palette comes with four different colors (they don't have names ;/) ranging from pale pink to dusty salmon.
The blushes are highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. In the above picture, I am wearing the upper left color, a very soft pink rose shade. In the picture below I am wearing the upper right color on my cheeks and on my eyelids, which is a true pink shade.
Which leads me to my next reason as to why I love this palette so much, the colors are so pigmented, that they can easily transform into a soft, but fierce eyeshadow. For me, I like to use the same blush I used on my cheeks on my eyelids to add unity within my makeup look, but to each his own. As I stated before, a little goes a long way when it comes to these blushes. You do not need to stack on this product, it is vibrant with even the tiniest application. Although the product is highly pigmented, it is also very blendable. If you accidentally apply too much, be sure to blend it out as much as you can, followed by a foundation powder.
I definitely recommend this product for those blush newbies like me, you won't be disappointed.
