I'm currently loving bold blushes, especially red ones. I used to be afraid of them since I thought I could look clownish. However, I recently found out you can get a marvelous flushed look with it, you just have to keep it sheer. So, I decided to show you today the ones I currently own:
Now, here are heavy swatches:
From left to right:
- Sleek Molten
- Sleek Bon Fire
- Sleek Furnace
- Guerlain Red Hot (the small part)
- Shiseido Orchid (RD401)
- Nars Exhibit A
- Makeup Forever 99
- Mac Love Thing
The bolder ones are Bon Fire, Furnace and Exhibit A. I actually find Bon Fire and Exhibit A are too close, just a slightly different undertone. Exhibit A leans a little bit more orange.
The ones I find sheerer and then better to start with are Molten, Red Hot and Orchid. Especially Orchid, since it leans to pink.
MUFE 99 can also be worn as an eyeshadow while Love Thing is a nice red for fall.
My personal favorites are Bon Fire and Exhibit A, yes the boldest. As a recommendation to use it, you need to pair it with some bronzer to avoid the clownish look. A video by MonsiieurAlex was very helpful to me to learn how to use red blush, so I'm sharing you the link: http://youtu.be/mq_IRULlz4w
Which is your favorite red blush?
