The blusher I used on my cheeks is from Sleek Cosmetics. The blusher is called Flushed. It is a really deep pink but it goes on bright. So a little goes a long way. But I think it really does give you that "flushed" look. Like I just ran up the stairs but in a pretty way. I also say go even brighter with Sleek's Pixie Pink blusher.

This trend makes me VERY happy! How long have I been saying that women don't wear enough blusher these days? Like they are scared of it or something. Blusher is one of my favorite products! And blush is a spring trend this year. Bright pink blusher! I'm loving it!
Now the picture above is from the runway. So we always have to interpret that to an every day look. This is what I came up with.
Keep the eye make up soft, shimmery and pastel like colors.
Fill in the eyebrows softly.
Check out Sephora for a fun bright blusher this season. Or check out Sleek for the blusher I used or other great blush colors.
Give this trend a try. Don't be scared of blush. Listen to Tristan. If you blend it well enough and concentrate the bulk of the color right on the apples of the cheeks you can't go wrong. I promise.
BRING BLUSHER BACK! HA HA! ;-)

I went shopping last week with my Sephora gift card that my cute hubby gave me for Christmas. I had SO much fun! I was in the market for a really good blusher/bronzer duo. After some research and listening to a few of my favorites make up artists I decided to go with the Nars Laguna and Orgasm duo. The name alone is intriguing right?
The blusher Orgasm is a peachy pink color with kind of a golden shimmer. The reason for its name is because NARS was going for the flushed look kinda like the one you get after orgasm. And the bronzer Laguna is a light brown with that same golden shimmer. it is light enough to wear it alone, but you can also use it as a contour and build it up to deepen your contour. I have been wearing it for about a week now and I am in love! It is beautiful! It is very universal and will totally work with any skin tone. Especially the blusher.
This is a photo of my daughter and I. I am going to do this look for you in a video tutorial. It is a simple and soft look using 4 eyeshadows, and of course the blusher/bronzer duo. I will get that done in the next few days here.
I am also super excited to be hired as the hair stylist and make up artist for my lovely friend's daughter's Bat Mitzvah! I get to travel to my "second home" the San Francisco Bay Area CA!! I haven't been "home" in 2 years! I miss it every day and I'm so excited to visit, and even more excited to be working while I'm there. I plan to take many photos of my fun there. I am just now trying to figure out how to get my entire beauty arsenal into 2 suitcases without anything getting damaged. I will be shopping for lots of bubble wrap next week! Wish me luck!
