Hot Pink Blush: Are You Brave Enough?Kate Bryan
A warm peachy tone can work on just about every skin tone, and beyond that there seems to be an endless variety of pinks to choose from. I’m a firm believer that every women should own a few different colors of blush. Since our skin color varies throughout the year, usually more pale in the winter and tan in the summer, it’s fun to see how different colors look on different skin tones.
Have you been brave enough to try hot pink blush? Every time I would see it at the store, I would pass it by thinking, “there is no way I want to mess with that.” But I was doing a little shopping last week and found a little promotional kit containing a miniature blush in hot pink. It was the perfect time to give it a try, without the commitment of buying a full size blush.
After applying it the first time I learned a few things. First, go light. If you want more dimension on your face, contour with bronzer and highlighter but don’t rely on a hot pink blush for all your “color”. You may look a little too much like barbie.
Use a fluffy brush and swirl the color on the apples of your cheeks. If it’s a little bit too pink for you, dust some powder over it to soften the look.
While this may not be an “every day” kind of blush, it’s fun to add a bright pop of color to your cheeks every once in awhile.
