Warm Blushes To Fight Off Winter Wash-Out

You've seen the post on the fabulous selection of creamy chic cheek sweeps, but these highly pigmented warm winter blushes are powder-based and bright enough to wipe out winter wash-out. Using the same colored blush from summer can look too strong against paler skin. Opt for more of a brownish, brick color that will add depth and a sensual flushed look.

Application: start by applying powder blush to the apples of your cheeks and blending downward. For more color, lightly and carefully dab a brighter blush on just the apples of your cheeks and add a highlighter on your upper cheekbones for a little shimmer.

One of my all time favorite winter powder blush colors is Laura Mercier Cheek Colour in Blushing Apple. This is a natural color with a soft finish and will stay on all day. It blends easily and has a very soft shimmer to it . Buy it here for $22.

Two more, so

Bobbi Brown Tawny Blush is one of her most popular and diverse shades. Her blushes are very natural looking and will warm up winter skin. This silky smooth blush lasts forever and has a matte finish. Buy it here for $20.

Lancôme Blush Subtil Shimmer in Shimmer Pink Pool is an amazing oil free powder blush. It has a little bit of sparkle and glides on ever so smoothly.
Buy it here for $27.50

I believe I'm the only person here who is not totally impressed with Bare Minerals? :( I'm trying to decide whether or not to return it.

I have fear of blush. But, i tend to be ruddy so I think I don't need it.

My FAVORITE all-time blush is smashbox Skin Tint in ultra-violet (a berry color) - I use Bare Minerals, with warmth on the bones where the sun would hit, and then blend a little bit of the skin tint onto the apples of the cheeks, and it makes me look a little wind-slapped, and healthy, and awake, and like I just had a great shag followed by a great nap. It blends surpisingly well OVER the Bare Minerals too. Then I set all the makeup with the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil. OOOhh, I love it. Ever since I started wearing it, I get so many compliments from people, but not about my makeup, they just say "You look GREAT today!! Are you on vacation or something???" Try it.
