Cream Blush by MAC


Blush is an important final step in your makeup application. Blush brings a glow to the face, as if a candle was lit from within. Many blushes come in powder form, but they also come in cream form, which is the form I’ll discuss today. One of my favorite blushes is the MAC cream blush.  The blush is very lightweight and gives off a nice dewy look – a look that is especially suitable to those with dry skin, since dry skin gives off a very dull, matte look. 

 

MAC’s cream blushes are pigmented, so a little definitely goes a long way. My favorite way to apply this blush is with a brush, and the MAC 188 duo brush is my tool of choice. The brush bristles are not dense and therefore pick up an even amount of product. In a soft circular motion, I blend the blush right into the skin, after the foundation is applied. Make sure that there is no powder on the foundation prior to applying the cream blush, so the finished look is not murky. If you don’t want to use a brush, or don’t have one, you can even use your fingers and lightly tap the blush onto your cheeks, blending it in. After the cream blush is blended in, make sure to powder your face with a translucent face powder, to keep the blush from smearing. MAC has a nice selection of colors to choose from: pinks, corals and browns.

 

Since the blush is cream based, it’s not recommended for oily skin. The oils from your skin will mix together with the cream, causing an “unclean” finish.

 

I like it how this product photographs nicely, and it’s my choice of blush on most brides. I found that it lasts a lot longer on the face, and definitely worth the investment. This product costs $18.50 and can be bought directly from MAC, or from Macy’s.

With the recent kidnapping by the Hamas and the barbaric murder of three children – Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frankel, we believe that the best answer to honor the memory of those murdered is to continue building those very communities – large and small – that our enemies are trying to destroy.

Many of my clients have small eyes. Often, they ask for certain color eye shadow or even a style that would not make the eye appear larger, but would actually make it appear smaller. In this week’s column I’d like to give tips on how to make small eyes appear “larger.”

The most important element of your eye makeup is mascara. I’ve mentioned in a previous column that mascara is one of the most crucial steps in your basic daily makeup wear. Mascara, even without any eye shadow, creates definition.

Dear Sharona,

I am in my late 20′s and have heavy lids and small bags under my eyes. As I am still young and get plenty of rest, doctors have told me that it is genetic. My trouble with concealing the bags is not with the coloring (like people with dark circles) as much as it is with how to make the bags look smaller or less puffy and my eyes bigger. What are your suggestions?

Which lipsticks will last throughout Shabbos is a common question I am asked. In fact, many women share this common problem where the lip color just “slides” right off within a few hours. There are a few products on the market that are formulated to last from 8-18 hours, and many of them can be purchased at your local drug store. Covergirl, Maybelline and L’Oreal all make long lasting lip color that can be found at drug stores.

What’s so special about airbrush makeup? Is this a new technique in makeup application? These are a couple of questions I commonly get from my readers and clients. Airbrush makeup application has been used in Hollywood on models and actors for over 30 years. For approximately ten years, makeup artists have been using this on brides, businesswomen, or anyone that wants to look great for an event.

Blush is an important final step in your makeup application. Blush brings a glow to the face, as if a candle was lit from within. Many blushes come in powder form, but they also come in cream form, which is the form I’ll discuss today. One of my favorite blushes is the MAC cream blush. The blush is very lightweight and gives off a nice dewy look – a look that is especially suitable to those with dry skin, since dry skin gives off a very dull, matte look.

When applying make-up most people focus on the eyes or lips, and sometimes forget to give attention to the eyebrows. Your brows can open up your eyes and face, and can also make you appear younger, so be sure to give them as much attention as you would your eyes and lips.

Dear Sharona,

I have very prominent eyes; I was wondering what color and or style of makeup would suit me? I have dark brown hair and brown eyes, and medium-deep skin tone. I rarely put on makeup and if I do, it’s only on my eyes. I am looking forward to reading your suggestions.
