How to choose the best face blush?
Now that we are done seeing all the best options available in the market for blush, the most significant question mark remains how to choose the best face blush for yourself?
When it comes to considering the points before making the right choice of blush for yourself, the options are limited to the color of blushes and the type of blushes, their textures, formulations, ingredients, etc.
So to quest your urge, let me talk about the quick guide to follow before you choose your blush
1. Skin Type
Before we consider what pleases our eyes, it’s essential to know what pleases our skin! The Indian market incorporates two types of blushes- Powder and Cream.
It is the most no brainer point – if you have dry skin, you obviously shouldn’t opt for a powder type blush because that makes your skin look chalky, flaky and can even showcase layering lines whereas, a creamy product would give a supple and dewy finish with a tint of shade.
When it comes to oily skin, it’s vice versa; you don’t want to apply a creamy product or anything that irks your oil glands. Topping up with a powder blush will press the oil and keep your skin away from looking greasy.
2. Skin Tone
When choosing the right tone for your blush, you don’t want to go overboard; that’s a mismatch for your complexion. Your skin should look naturally flushed as it seems when you are shying away or a little embarrassed; that’s the exact shade that you are looking for!
And how to know that? Well, check with your undertone if you have fair skin and cool undertones, you should go for lighter pinkish shades, while those with fair skin and warm undertones should choose lighter but shades on the peachy side. Simultaneously, a person with a wheatish complexion or medium skin tone can opt for slightly darker but similar shades as long as they are not too intensely pigmented.
3. Check your allergens
Always read the label and consider the ingredients before making the final choice of any product; you must check that the product does not contain anything you are allergic to.
From drugstore to high-end, we have blushes in all the ranges and something for even. If you are budget constrained or want to go for a high-end brand, you have an array of options to choose from.
As they say, a choice can make you or break you; the same goes with choosing your blush. Either the right blush can make you look or break your look, making you appear dull and flat. Hopefully, this article helped you in giving a fair idea about the right choice for your blush.
