Since I started flipping through the pages of Charla Krupp’s guide on How Not to Look Old, I’ve come across a few fun ideas on simple changes I can make to look younger.
Today’s topic – blush! To look younger and hipper (or Y+H in Krupp’s lingo), switch from a powder to a cream blush. That way the color blends more easily into your skin offering a radiant glow from within as opposed to the color sitting on top of your skin.
The only downside to cream blushes is that the formula tends to fade faster than powders so touch-ups throughout the day might be a nuisance.
However if you don’t mind reapplication or generally don’t touch up mid-day anyway (like me), here are swatches of three of my favorite non-powder blushes. From left to right: NARS Orgasm, MAC Just a Pinch, and Lancôme in Model Mocha.
