Women have been talking about the virtues of using mineral makeup blush as one of the best types of blush for making your face light up and look its radiant best. In truth, making your face look its very best is not dependent on blush alone, but on how each makeup blends with each other.
Face Friendly Blush Make up
Making your face look its best is made easier with the right makeup. Mineral makeup is one of the friendliest kinds of makeup for the face because it is made up of natural and pure minerals. There is organic mineral makeup and some mineral makeup that is not labeled as organic, but is mineral based. There are supposed to be no synthetic chemicals in this makeup. But because there are really no guidelines regarding the composition of products labeled as this kind of makeup, you can't really be sure of the product claiming to be mineral is 100% or just 5% mineral.
If your skin is oily or dry, or you have skin problems, mineral makeup should be good for you. After applying a good foundation for makeup, rubbing in some rouge or blush to redden your cheeks is good. This is done to emphasize your cheekbones and its effect is to make you look younger.
Mineral makeup blush has several shades. Makeup artists usually suggest that you choose the shade closest to your skin. If your skin is dark, you should choose the darker blush shade like burgundy or wine. If your skin is fair, get the mineral makeup blush shade that is pinkish or is in coral shades.
During the days of Cleopatra, blush was used extensively. It was not only used to make the cheeks look red and healthy, it was even used to redden the lips. Ladies in ancient Egypt used to apply blush on their lips the way lipstick is applied today. During Britain's Victorian Age, women shunned blush and preferred to pinch their cheeks and bite their lips frequently to make them appear red.
Match Lipstick Shade
Mineral makeup blush should match the shade of your lipstick. If your lipstick shade is red, choose a blush color that is also the same hue or shade. During daytime, you can choose a shade of blush that is lighter and then make it heavier towards the evening. Rubbing blush on with a heavier application will give you a more dramatic look for that night out with friends.
The stuff that blush is made up of has come a long way from those days in ancient Greece when crushed mulberries were the favorite cheek colorant of many young women. What hasn't changed is a woman's desire to look great regardless of age. Adding some blush to pale cheeks also gives a weak or sick woman the added vitality to look forward to becoming better and healthier.
As you apply mineral makeup blush on your face, be sure to use just a small amount on the brush. If it is too much, tap off the excess gently. Smile as you apply the blush, making sure that you cover your cheek, upwards to your hairline. Gently release your smile and see if you applied it evenly and then breathe easy. Now you can smile with a light heart as your blush blends in easily and makes you look radiant and fresh.
