WANT THAT YOUTHFUL GLOW? LISTEN UP


We've covered your lips and eyes, now it's time for your cheeks! Rather than depending on a natural glow, you can use a natural blush to give you the youthful look.  Blush also highlights your cheekbones.

Blushes and Skin Types

Certain types of blushes work better for certain skin types. For example, for oily skin types with large pores and greasy, shiny skin:  powder or gel blushes are a better fit than cream blushes. Cream blushes are best for flaky, dry skin. If you have normal skin you can wear whatever blush type you like, lucky you! However, gel or liquid based blushes work excellent for normal skin.

Now, for combination skin, if the cheekbone is oily, go with the powder or gel type blushes. Conversely, for dry cheekbones, creamy blushes might be the best pick for you. You can also try the vast selection of Korean cushion blushes that are each developed for different skin types.

Blushes and Skin Tones

As with other beauty products, you have pick up your blush in accordance with your skin tone. A single shade of blush doesn’t compliment every skin tone. For instance, warm shades don’t compliment extremely pale skin tones with red undertones. Vibrant and peach-like shades are recommended for pale skin with dark eyes and dark hair.

Those with red hair might want to pass over the coral shades and pick up on shades like peaches or pinks. Fair-skinned individuals can sport almost any blush shade depending on their hair color or eye color. Good ol’ golden blondes can wear most pink shades while individuals with Mexican and Indian skin tones can wear warm and rich blushes with high levels of pigmentation.

The difference between cushion blush, cream blush and powder blush

Cream Blush

As the name suggests, a cream blush comes in a creamy or cakey form and adds a colorful layer on top of the skin. Thanks to its protective and moisturizing effect, it’s the best alternative for dry skin types. It can reduce the flakiness of the dry skin. Also, these creamy blushes blend onto the skin easily. With their intense pigmentation, they give a soft, transparent, and fresh glow to the skin.

Powder Blush

Powder blush is one of the most common blushes available on the market. These powder blushes are the best possible solution for oily skin because of their ability to absorb oil. It is very easy to apply powder blushes. They come with a wide range of colors and the colors last for a long time.

Cushion Blush

Cushion blushes are rather new to the western market. Nonetheless, the market size and the popularity of cushion blushes are growing at a shocking rate, especially in Korean. These cushion blushes come in a liquid form with a cushion or sponge as the applicator. Regardless of the skin type, you can use these cushion blushes thanks to their non-creamy, non-glossy, and matte composition.
