What it is and what it is for?


Since ancient Greece, women and men, to ensure a healthier appearance, used a mixture of blackberries and seaweed to color their cheeks. Over the years, blush has become an indispensable cosmetic in make-up.
Blush is a makeup product used to highlight and color cheekbones. Its purpose is to promote a healthier appearance to the face and correct certain irregularities.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


The blush has the following ingredients:
Dyes, which are pigments that add color to blush, such as mica, zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
Talc and stearic acid, which are used to dilute pigments.
Kaolin, which is most used today, is an ingredient with a tendency to have a thick texture with oil-absorbing properties.
Dry binders, such as zinc stearate or magnesium stearate, which are used to allow powder blush to be compressed and retain their shape.


Which various types exist and what are their differences?


The blush is presented in mosaic, in liquid state, in compact state, among others.
Mosaic blush is a mixture of several shades, matching any type of skin. Composed of a formula with ultrafine texture and micronized pigments, it provides smooth application and excellent adhesion, such as Prisme Blush by Givenchy.
The liquid blush is easy to apply and provides a natural and healthy effect to the face. This blush consists of a formula with a mild fragrance and glycerin that maintains the skin's natural hydration, for example Lovetint by Benefit.
The compact blush is the most common and promotes good fixation. In addition, it is also recommended for all skin types, especially oily ones, such as Artist Face Color Blush by Make Up For Ever.
The loose powder blush is developed with special particles that give an easy, smooth and velvety application that enhances and illuminates the face.
The cream blush is the most recommended for dry skin, as it can run and leave an oily shine on the skin, such as AMC Cream Blush by Inglot.
The stick blush provides a more rigid texture. This blush lasts a long time and can be applied directly to the skin, just like Phyto-Blush Twist by Sisley.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


Mosaic blush, compact blush and loose powder blush are presented in packs identical to small pallets and their most frequent quantities are 5gr to 20gr.
The liquid blush is in a dispenser and gloss format. Their quantities can be from 10ml to 15ml.
The cream blush exists on small pallets or in a jar. Their quantities are from 5gr to 20gr.
The stick blush, as the name implies, exists in stick packs and in quantities of 5gr to 10gr.


What to take into account when choosing a blush?


When choosing a blush, take into account the color according to your skin tone, to create a natural and subtle result.
On light skin, the ideal is to opt for lighter blush, as it will look more natural and beautiful, such as pale pink and peach.
On medium to tanned skin, as your skin is already warm, the purpose of a blush is to give it a slight improvement and not to overdo it. The most suitable shades are berry pink, mauve, orange peach and brownish or bronze tones.
In the case of dark skin, the objective of the blush is to make the face shine. The ideal are shades like terracotta, dark pink, brick and orange.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


You must understand the shape of your face for a correct application.
On the oval face, the blush should be applied in order to taper the cheeks, to gain a finer appearance, that is, it should be applied close to the cheekbones.
In the square face, the goal will be not to detach the chin. To do this, gently pass the blush under the temples.
In the round face, the idea will be to smooth the lines. For this purpose, deposit the blush slightly below the apples, smudging it to the central region of the cheeks.
Finally, a peach blush looks good on any skin, and can be used for any makeup and height.


What are the pros and cons of using blush?


Blushes promote a healthier and more beautiful appearance and conceal small imperfections; however, we must also take into account the disadvantages.
The blush may contain ingredients that cause skin or eye irritation and allergic reactions. Therefore, it is important to check the composition of the product.
Another con is the fact that if it is not applied well, it will be disastrous and cause a very unpleasant appearance to the face.
