Blush can be baffling. So many options, so many ways to go wrong – sigh. The key is to be true to your skins’ natural tendencies.
*Look at the inside of your lower lip. Pick a color that resembles it.
Our model has a gorgeous, deep olive skin tone. Personally, I find that pink shades with lavender undertones work well on olive skin. A blush with a golden hue would be very flattering as well.
Here are some good options by Nars. These are kind of expensive ($26), so if they’re not in your budget, go to a store like Sephora, try blushes on until you find something great – leave it on – then go to a drugstore and find the closest match.
*Yes, it’s a lot of work, but at least you’ll end up with a blush that truly works for you and your budget.

Tip: To make blush last all day, try using a cheek stain, gel or cream blush first, then top with powder to set.
2. Overall Look
I filled in the front portion of the brows a bit, contoured and added a little gloss to the lips.
