Mineral Blusher Information

The correct blusher color & application technique can make any cheekbone really stand out.

The easiest way to choose the perfect blush color is to pinch your cheeks & then match a blusher shade to your cheeks. Choose a blusher that matches pinched cheeks exactly, or one that is not more than one to two shades darker.

Generally speaking, for ivory or light beige skin tones & daytime where, blushes with soft pink undertones (Petal or Primrose) are usually your best choice. For warmer skin tones, consider Peaches. For nighttime wear, consider a deeper tone with more shimmer (Posey or Aster) Never use a bronze or brown-toned shade.

For tanned skin tones, consider Petal or Primrose for daily wear, or Posey & Aster for nighttime wear.

If you have an olive skin tone, choose a blusher with warm undertones (Peaches or Posey) or a Plum shade.

For Middle Eastern women & if your skin has a somewhat greenish tone, choose a deep bronzer, or a blusher with Plum, currant (Zinnia), or deep rose shades (Guava or Posey).

Ebony or bronze skin tone? Try Plum for daytime & Guava or Zinnia for a more dramatic nighttime look. Or consider a bronzer rather than a blusher.

The best brush for applying mineral blusher is a large, fluffy brush like our hightlighting brush. It's wide area gives a more natural, smooth blusher look.

* it's usually a good idea to have a couple blusher colors on hand- one for day & one for night.

* base your choice in blusher colors on what gives you an instant, healthy, natural glow

* blend blush up into hairline to make it look more natural

* in a pinch, use a lipcolor in the same way you'd use a cream blusher
