THE MOST HARMONIOUS BLUSH SHADE FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

It’s a free world and I love that we can all wear any blush shade we are in the mood to wear each day! But certain shades are more harmonious on some skin tones than on others. Why does it matter? Because when you find your perfect blush shade, no matter what eye shadow or lip color you choose, the blush becomes secondary and more of a natural flush, like you’re blushing. So here’s a loose guideline in finding your blush bestie! **We know that many of us fall in between the 6 skin tone shades listed above, but as much as it kills us, we just can’t include all 5,682 different variations in skin tones…  But please don’t fret, just find the ones that you fall in between and decide if you have more of the cooler or warmer undertone version of the two tones.

The holidays are here and that means it’s time to take chances with fashion and makeup! You can’t waste studded heels or a beaded dress with boring everyday makeup… you gotta step it up! Because I live for makeup (and the holidays), every late November I go from counter to counter at the department stores then up and down every aisle at the drug and specialty stores and play with every holiday palette and shade like a kid in a candy store. So without further ado, here are my favorites in each category to help you sparkle at your holiday parties this month:

FACE
Splurge: Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer – I’ve never been a fan of tinted moisturizers as they go way too shiny on my clients and me, but this one is a game changer with the perfect amount of coverage and most importantly, glow.
Steal: Covergirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation — This natural foundation gives great coverage while feeling like a lightweight mousse that disappears when you put it on (along with your imperfections!), because when you’re rocking a red lip and sequins, you don’t want anyone to notice you’re wearing foundation.
