Ask Belle: Getting Flushed
Nov 13, 2014
I know you like Bobbi Brown blushes, but is that all you use? I need something under-$10, and I’m hoping you have a drugstore bargain in your makeup bag. (oh, please, oh, please…)
Tis true, I do love a Bobbi Brown blush (and her blush brush). But if you need something less expensive, I have several drugstore blushes that I’ve tried and can recommend. Because while my every day colors come from Bobbi, sometimes a girl needs to change it up.
This is my gym-bag blush. It’s sheer enough to add a little color or a lot depending on what I want. I add just a bit to the apples of my cheeks for a pop of color.
I own this Maybelline Fit Me! blush in light mauve. It has an ethereal glow to it that also makes it a good cheekbone highlighter. This Maybelline Dream Bouncy cream blush is a great summertime blush. (Need a cream blush tutorial? Try this one.) And if you’re looking for a blush that you can’t screw up, try this Magic Mosaic blush from Physician’s Formula. It makes blush application and color selection foolproof.
