Blush is an easy way of getting a desired skin color. Many of us shy away from using blushes because we might not be confident about the appropriate way of using this product. But truly speaking they can enhance your look many folds when applied properly. The right technique with the right product works wonders to make you look fabulous. As per skin care experts blushes can be used not only to give yourself the desired make up look but also to mask the skin imperfections to make your skin look perfect.
Blushes are available as powders or as liquids. Both the kinds serve the same purpose but what you select for yourself totally depends on what you are more comfortable applying. Generally speaking powder blushes are easier to use. Being powders they stick to the skin easily and do not give matted look. Another plus point with the powdered blushes is their rightness for those with oily skin.
Blushes & brushes
These dry powders hide the open skin pores, blemishes, scars very nicely making your skin look beautiful. While using powdered blushes one important thing to be considered is the brush you use. To cover wider areas wide mouthed brush while for corners and smaller areas tapered brushes are to be preferred. Beauticians and skin professionals are habitual of using these brushes and thus quite comfortably apply the cosmetics swiftly with these brushes. But if you start using it frequently, soon you will also become friendly and comfortable with your brushes and in no time will be able to give yourself perfect blush.
Blushes are available in many shades and thus you can select the kit with right mix of colors for yourself. Light and dark all shades of pink and skin color are available to match different, dresses, moods and occasions. The color and style of the blush i.e. covering only apples of the cheeks or complete cheeks is all dependent on the users liking and choice.
After you are sure of what color for your blush, the next step is to select a product. A good quality and skin friendly product is what you should look for. Since these cosmetic products are to be directly applied onto the skin they need to be non-irritating and absolutely gentle for the skin. Mineral blushes are definitely a good choice. These are available as both powdered as well as liquid blushes and are enriched with vitamins and minerals essential for the skin. Some products like those from GloBlush cosmetics have green tea extracts which are very helpful in giving fine skin tone.
The minerals and other nature based extracts present in these products are effective in treating skin problems like fine lines. They are also tested to have anti bacterial action. This is good in camouflaging skin marks as well as protecting your skin against any microbes which might get attracted towards your skin owing to sweat, dirt and pollution.
So next time you wear Mineral Cosmetics, just relax as you very well know that your skin is being nourished while you are partying.
