Over the past few years, I didn’t think too much about what I wore or put on my face, other than my trusty gingham mask. But now that spring has sprung, I feel excited about getting outside and being a person, and, I don’t know, I just want to feel… pretty?
After playing around with makeup, I found that the one product that makes the biggest difference is blush. As soon as I swipe it on, my whole face lights up. Do you wear it? “Blush is EVERYTHING,” said my bff Gemma, who is a genius in all ways but especially makeup.
“As makeup sales begin to recover for the first time in two years, blush is the unlikely hero product of a (sort of) post-pandemic world,” reports Glamor. “The product has shed its stuffy reputation to become a glowy staple.”
The other day, I spent some time experimenting, and Gemma gave me instructions. “Blush is worn slightly higher than in the days of yore,” she texted. “Don’t go below your nose-to-ears line.” And the current trend is not just wearing a faint tint, but really piling it on. I use this creamy multistick for everyday, and I also LOVE these two:
* This soft pink, which has a cult following, makes you look like, as Gemma says, you had “gentle but meaningful sex that morning.”
* For more of a pop, this highlighter palette has four fun colors to play with. “Dewiness is overrated and usually comes off greasy; instead, try to look velvety, ”says Gemma, and this is perfect for that.
Do you wear blush? If so, which do you like? Please share below…
