The It-Blush To Own For Fall

The It-Blush To Own For Fall

When it comes to blush, it’s all about two things: Placement and color. In regards to the former, start at the outer corner of your cheekbone and move in. Instead of focusing on the apples of your cheeks, instead concentrate the color on the outer part of your face, a bit higher than the apples. It’s part contouring, part playful and altogether alluring. In terms of color, today we’re bringing you the top ten plum blushes out there. Plum is a color trend we’re really warming up to, as it gives you a fun, sexy and retro ‘70s vibe we’re really digging. Open up your face and warm up your complexion at the same time as you play around with any of these great plum blushes.
