Freshest Spring Blushes

May 01, 2014

Spring is here and that means one thing - it's time to reboot our cosmetic bags! Now that we're getting a little bit of sunshine, there is no easier way to instantly brighten up your winter complexion than with a pop of color on your cheeks. We've rounded up the freshest, most glow-getting blushes out there - guaranteed to add liven up your makeup routine! From peach to pink to cream blushes and sticks, we've got something for everyone out there. So what are you waiting for? Get your glow on!

Which Blush Is Right For Me? 

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, stick with powder blushes. They'll stay on longer and you'll get a more natural look. Apply with a fluffy blush brush, you can get totally affordable ones at the drugstore so don't worry! The little tiny ones that come with the blusher are way too small and you'll end up with streaks instead of a natural flush. If you have dry or normal skin, try using cream blushes. They're easy to apply and you can even dab some of it on your lips! Gel blushes also work well on normal skin - these last a long time and if you want it to last extra long, layer a bit of powder blush on top! The darker your skin, the deeper the color you can pull off! Don't be afraid to go bright orange or pink!

Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
