Subtle blush

I hate obvious blush. The worst example was Lindsay Lohan at her court appearance for violating court orders (and I feel badly about her situation, as The Parent Trap remake is one of my favorite romcoms).

Perhaps it harkens back to the nude/naked makeup of the early 1990s, but I prefer subtle blushes, and Revlon fills the bill.  I alternate between the Revlon Powder Blush in Sandalwood Beigeicon (a perennial) and Revlon Colorstay Mineral Blush in Honeyicon.

I use a dome-shaped blush brush and apply blush only to the apples of my cheeks.

I also use Revlon Naturally Glamorous Blush-on in Fleshtone, from a limited edition collection of neutrals that was released when Cindy Crawford was still the face of Revlon.  Perhaps it was a harbinger of things to come: Halle Berry replaced Veronica Webb in the ads for the limited edition collection. Sorry, I couldn't find images of the ads for the collection.

I agreed- a lot of people overdo their bursh. I love the more natural blush look. The sandalwood color looks nice! Is it shimmer or matte?

Hi Lisa, thanks for reading! The Revlon Powder Blush in Sandalwood Beige is matte.
