I prefer wearing more natural makeup, and for my lips and cheeks I tend to wear pinks, mauves and nudes, and therefore I have decided to feature a combination of such shades that I am really in love with lately!BareMinerals Gen Nude Powder Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz. from BareMinerals, Nordstrom, Sephora, Ulta, Macy's and Look Fantastic): I am thrilled by the formula of these blushes because they feature an utterly sublime ultra-finely milled texture that is unbelievably creamy, soft and silky-smooth to the touch. These blushes blend to perfection, and can easily be mixed to create custom colors– which I have been doing with great success and results. Each of the three shades that I have glide across the skin effortlessly, deposit color evenly and give the skin a gorgeous subtle glow with an optical blurring effect.
According to BareMinerals,
Instant natural flush. Buildable color. Blurring effect. Mineral-rich formula. Meet Gen Nude® Powder Blush, the ultimate mineral makeup that defines your cheekbones and warms and brightens your complexion. This weightless blush comes in 12 amped up nude shades that mimic a natural flush. The good-for-skin, ultra-creamy formula is long lasting, blendable, and features our new Blurring Mineral Complex for a brightening, soft-focus effect. We used our complexion expertise to develop next generation nudes that compliment all skin tones-just blend and layer for a million ways to go nude.
