I've always been a peachy-pink blush kind of gal. I was scared of trying cool-toned hues because I assumed they would look fake on my Pinay complexion. However, I love taking beauty risks every now and then (I've had two episodes of the blonde life and tried a few ~procedures~ here and there.), so I figured maybe it's time to experiment with makeup. After all, you can wash it off.
Purple Blushes That Look Good On Pinay Skin Tones
BLK Creamy All Over Tint in Very Peri
My first purple blush exploit was BLK Creamy All Over Tint in Very Peri. It looked intimidating in the bottle, but something in me got drawn into its periwinkle hue. As soon as I blended the blush onto my cheeks, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The flush was youthful as if I'd slept for 10 hours every night of my life.
Vice MultiGanda One & Done Stick in Purpleism
The next purple blush I tried is the Vice Cosmetics MultiGanda One and Done Stick in Purpleism. This cream blush had micro shimmer particles that create a glowy flush. Surprisingly, this cool-toned blush looked flattering on my warm, medium skin tone. Vice Cosmetics has done it again by nailing shades that look great on Pinays!
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Faith
Deeper purples are welcome in this experiment. I recommend the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Faith. It's a jewel-toned purple that produces a berry-like flush on the cheeks. This is perfect for morenas who covet the pinched-cheeks effect.
Using your fingers, Lightly dab the ~jelly~ like blush onto the top of your cheekbones and blend it in a circular motion up to the corner of the eye. I learned this technique from celeb makeup artist Jason Delos Reyes (he's the MUA of Gabbi Garcia and Andrea Torres!). This method lifts round faces, so the cheeks will look slimmer.
