It has really been hectic day starting from work, then I took my daughter shopping and dealing with the heavy traffic! Traffic’s really worst when it’s raining. But I don’t want to highlight my hectic day but instead I want to talk about Blushes! Though I’m not really a fan of putting blush (blush on) coz I’m a contour devotee. But… In my case it is deemed necessary because I’m a pale kinda gal. If I go out there without blush on or lipstick, I literally look like a sick kid.
On today’s Tuesday Top Three, I want to share to you guys what I have tried and really works for me if I’m in a hurry and I’m pretty pretty sure that this’ll do it for the working girls out there or students on the go.
My Go-To Blushes.
1. Avon Flavor Savers lip balm in Bubblegum
I discovered this one when I was in Senior High School. I noticed that my lip balm really doesn’t do the trick only on my lips. Still looking pale with my face powder on and my Avon Flavor Savers on my lips. I did try dabbing the lip balm on my upper cheek bone going upwards. And my! Highlighter was not a thing during that time but it looked like I had blush slash highlighter on my cheek bones. It kind of gave me a warm glow and a lot of my friends noticed it too. (Note: No skin break out happened)
2. Sophie Magic Pink Cream
This pink goodie can be used as a lip tint and blush. But on my case it doesn’t work for me as a lip tint that will last all say. But… It does it’s magic on my cheeks. It’s very smooth and easy to apply. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing your concealer, bb cream or already mattified your face with powder, the Sophie Magic Pink Cream will glide smoothly on your face. And works well from dry to oily skin but not on too oily skin I suppose. It’s like an instant magic blush and I recommend it.
3. Revlon Matte Balm + Pond’s Age defying Cream
Last but not least, I created my own cream blush. It’s been an old school beauty hack to use your lipstick as a blush on too. And I know almost all of us girls (plus our moms) have tried this trick. But to make it a lot easier with extra moisturizing benefits I am using Pond’s Age Defying Cream together with my Revlon Matte Balm in Showy. These products are for my personal recommendation only. You are free to use whatever lipstick you have or facial cream that you prefer. You just have to dab the lipstick on your finger and apply it on your cheeks then dab a very tiny amount of moisturizer to smoothen out the lipstick blush on your cheeks. And that’s it!
