Best Buy Series-Blushes
Blush application has been reinvented since the days of shoulder pads and excessive use of AquaNet hair spray. A perfectly placed rouge on the apples of your cheeks can be the difference between a hot mama or looking like your own mama. Drugstores offer fantastic options in this category so lets highlight some of them!
Maybeline comes in with two fantastic options in two very different finishes:
First up is Maybelline's Fit Blush ($6.00)
Dream Mousse Blush- $5.00
This rich and creamy but light blush offers the perfect amount of color with out over doing it. It offers buildable coverage and yet you wont look overly done. Available at most drugstores (CVS, Duane Reade, Walgreens and Walmart)
Black Radiance- $4.00
Words cannot describe how luxuriously pigmented this $4.00 product is. The range of colors are also quite beautiful. It is my ultimate go-to product that is a veritable staple in my makeup kit. Clients love the color payoff and the sheerness of the product. Available at most drugstores (CVS, Duane Reade, Walgreens and Walmart)
Vera Moore Cosmetics -$14.50
A little goes a long way with this long lasting blush. Vera Moore Cosmetics knows a thing or two about colors that compliment women of color. The variety is truly remarkable. Sangria is my ultimate fav and is a good dupe for MAC's Razin.Coral Gold is a good dupe for Nars' Orgasm, a must have blush for women of color. As a makeup artist (or just plain old makeup junkie), Vera Moore's blushes should be in your kit! Its available in most drug stores namely Duane Reade's Look Boutiques.
NYX Powder Blush -$6.00
NYX Cream Rouge- $6.75
