Winter Beauty: Rosy Cheeks

Cold winter weather and snow means naturally rosy pink cheeks! Even without the aid of winter frost and cold air, it’s super easy to mimic this winter snow bunny look with the right blush and technique! Blush is one of the best things to have in your makeup bag when you’re feeling a bit tired and pale. A pop of rosy blush makes your face perk up and come alive with just the stroke of a blush brush! No matter what your skin tone or coloring, there is a rosy blush shade out there that is right for you. Check out our gallery on our current favorite rosy pink blush shades! What’s your favorite blush?

Picking the Right Shade

With so many blush shades and different formulations out there, it’s hard to narrow down which one is right for you. Keep in mind that most blushes don’t look as bright on your cheeks as they look in the pan. Just remember to use a light touch with you apply! Clown cheeks is not a good look outside of the circus! If you have dark hair, your coloring can usually handle brighter shades of blush. If you’re very fair and blonde, go for paler pinks or blue-based true pinks. If you have tanned, olive or dark skin, you can pull of the very brightest so don’t be afraid to experiment! Put a bit of shimmer powder on your cheekbones for a fun party look that enhances your rosy cheeks!

Cream vs Powder

Blushes come in different textures like powder, creme-to-powder, cream, gel and even liquid! The easiest to use and apply is probably powder. You’ll need a proper blush brush which can be easily found at the drugstore for under $12. Throw away the mini-brush that is included in the packaging - those are way too small to be useful and will make the blush look streaky and unnatural. Cream, gel and liquid blushes tend to look a bit more natural as they meld easier onto your skin.

Application Tips

Make sure your skin is well-moisturized before applying blush. Apply moisturizer after washing your face while it is still damp and then let it dry. If there are dry patches, the blush will grab onto them and look blotchy. Tap your blush brush onto the powder and gently tap off any excess - do not blow on the brush! Blend softly onto the apples of your cheeks. Cream blush can be applied with your fingers - just dot three small dots onto the apples of your cheeks and blend. It’s a bit tricky to get both sides evenly matched but with practice it should be easy as pie! Gel and liquid blushes tend to last the longest - but you have to work fast because it dries really fast! Use the applicator to dot the liquid on your face and blend! A good tip is to use cosmetic sponges to apply - just put a couple of drops on the sponge and then blend on your cheeks for perfectly rosy cheeks!

That's just how sisters are. They would grow up and change their ways and do remember, whatever they do, how much they annoy you, they still love you and this is how usually kids show their love to someone they feel close to. Yes, they feel close to you and annoys you because they know you would tolerate them. It's their way and be proud of the fact that they consider you close enough to annoy! I would be more than glad if my sister annoys me. And even though my sister is just a month old, she's pretty hilariously good and annoying her and sometimes, I reciprocate her behavior towards me. She pretty hilarious and intelligent for a month old baby!

Well, she is four, and that's how little one's act.  ^This, and also I believe she'll start behaving better as she gets older.
