When it comes to makeup must-haves, blusher is your best beauty buddy – all you need is the subtlest of shading on the cheekbones and you’re good to go.
What colour should you choose? Glad you asked. Peach is perfect for our purposes – it’s universally flattering when worn judiciously as an accent, and provides an instant brightening boost to your face.
Another awesome aspect about peach: The shade straddles an incredibly versatile yellow-red spectrum, which in turn affords you an expansive wonderland of warm to cool hues to play around with.
Here’s how to select the perfect peach shade for your complexion. If you’re fair with cool blue undertones, opt for an orange that skews red – richly pigmented creamy concoctions shot through with silver flecks will flatter your colouring without making you look washed out. If you’re darker with warm undertones, choose a cantaloupe with a glimmer of gold; this will play up your bronzed tan and cancel out the slight green tint of olive brown skin.
Shimmery shades are also superb for tan skin; the iridescence will imbue your mien with a lovely, lit-from-within luminescence. On the other hand (or is that other cheek), matte has its merits when you’re gunning for the “natural” nude look – glittery grains can come off as garish, especially if you’re a greasier girl.
Another top tip: Try misting your makeup brush before application for maximum “mul-gwang” mileage. (The wetter, the better in this age of K-Beauty dewiness, as a wry makeup sage once quipped.) Swirl up and outwards along the highest plane of your cheekbones for a gorgeous gleam. Easy enough, right?
Right, then. I trust this was a practical primer on perfecting the flush on your face. Click through the gallery slides above for a quick and dirty run-through of some of the best peach products, and good luck getting your blush game on!
