First off I too am a make-up queen! But I’ve been venturing more to the blush arena lately. I buy cosmetics in every price range from .99 cents to well, umm lets just say it caused many of hubby fights with the over spending. Any whoo, the absolute blush that I am feeling at the moment is. …Drum rolls please…Wet N Wild hot pink! It looks bright but gives a real pretty pink effect or you can add more for a brighter cheek. And to top it off, its only $1.99

It’s better to say something sweet, and to make her blush by doing that.

Of course I can see the flaws – don’t get me started on the unblended streaks of blush, y’all know how I feel. But I think the slightly-gray paleness of her face (which really becomes apparent when you look at her neck and shoulders) can be attributed to too much mineral makeup. There but for the grace of God, go I. […]

But according to this utterly amazing Miami Herald article about the culture of hair and blackness in the Dominican Republic, generations of women see it as self-love. […]

Seeing too many women wearing way too much of the rosy-cheek stuff scared me off. But blush really does make a difference, and for women who shy away from the stuff, it’s the quickest way to get someone like me to notice and comment — hey, are you wearing makeup? Blush once daunted me because of it’s easy-to-overdo nature, but with Boots no7 Blush Tint Cream Blush, there’s no way you can come out looking like a clown. I’ve got the darkest shade, Rosebud, and I love it. It’s a chunky, chubby crayon that easily swipes sheer color onto your cheeks. Blend with your fingers and it looks barely-there beautiful. It’s gotta be the simplest blush out there right now, and it’s $9.99 at Target! […]
