Top 3 Dual Purpose Blush to Try for Fair, Medium and Dark Skin!

Hi guys! I am still under the weather, cough and colds but I won't let the day pass without sharing to you my top 3 picks!  The 3 blush that works as a blush and contour powder and I featured these 3 because these would work on Fair, Medium and Dark skin tone!

And best of all?  They're drugstore brands!  Well, only 2 brands to be exact because I am playing favorites with one brand, particularly this line --- the CoverGirl InstantCheekbones line!  They should be known to the world! 

L-R CoverGirl InstantCheekbones Sophisticated Sable, Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow and
CoverGirl InstantCheekbones Purely Plum
 Let's start with subtle and romantic blush-tour-lighting (okay, this will be my term for now!  To Blush, Contour and Highlight!).  This shade is perfect for fair to medium skin.

CoverGirl InstantCheekbones Contouring Blush  
Shade: Purely Plum

When you read the website for directions on how to use, you can either be directed to apply one color at a time, for me, I prefer to just swirl all three colors together and you get this subtle, oh-so-gorgeous healthy highlight!  If you want the extra girly punch, apply more on the apples of your cheeks blending outward close to your hairline to give your non-existent cheekbones an instant HELLO!

CoverGirl InstantCheekbones Contouring Blush 
Shade: Sophisticate Sable

I call this the perfect medium skin shade!  Why?  Well, most medium skin tones are already warm to start with (just like me on a very hot day).  So a subtle blush, highlight and contour is the key to a very natural look.  Don't underestimate the shade Sophisticate Sable though, giving in to more layers, this shade will give more dimension! 

As for me, I prefer to use this sparingly.  Again, swirling all shades together because I don't like to worry much about the "mechanics", instead, I just want to feel carefree with my blush application thus the effect is the same --- CAREFREE!

Revlon Highlighting Palette 
Shade: Bronze Glow

Never underestimate this blush or shall I say, Never judge a blush shade based on the look on packaging!  Just like YOU, I was expecting for a very badly pigmented blush that could only give my fair skin a poor glow!  Boy was I wrong!  LOOK!

This blush, when applied with medium to heavy hand will be a perfect blush for medium to dark skin tone BUT, fair skinned gals can also use this with EXTRA light hands!  The effect will be Bronze Goddess (not that I'm saying I am one --- but if you agree, thank you! :P)  But yeah, look at my cheekbones baby!

So far, these are my top 3 favorite blush-tour-lighting products!  I'd like to hear your thoughts on my top 3 and share to me other brands and shades you've tried that works as a "Blush-Tour-Lighter" too! 

I have to copyright that term!  I swear!
Have a wonderful start of June!
And don't forget to keep that smile coming and drink lots of water to keep those sniffles away!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
