Makeup Artist Sam Fine has said that the best color of blush for women of color, brown skin in particular, is coral. How true that is. Coral blush is my go-to color, even though I cheat now and then with a pink or red. My latest coral Blush Crush hails from Laura Mercier — Lush Nectarine Second Skin Cheek Colour.
Here are the details about Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine $26:
What it is:
What it does:
Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour is a light-as-air, velvety powder blush that sweeps on sheer color easily and evenly. With skin-silkening natural botanicals, your complexion looks naturally blushed and lit from within. Light-diffusing qualities allow a mistake-proof, flawless application that lasts all day.
What else you need to know:
Each color can be removed from its original packaging and placed in a customizable palette.
- Smile to find the rounded apple of your cheek.
- Beginning at the top of the cheekbone, use a patting motion or brush downward toward the apple of the cheek in a rounded horseshoe shape.
- Apply in light layers until desired color intensity is achieved.
Why I’m crushing:
With medium brown skin that has a golden undertone, I have become quite the coral blush aficionado. I’m always curious as to whether or not I will have decent payoff from the color in the pan. Well, Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine lived up to my high expectations.
This blush is fine that it practically melts into your skin, even though it is a powder. I love that with just a swipe of this blush I get a soft glow of color and with two swipes I have full-on blush (I like an overload of blush).
Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine wears well, like all day well. I apply this blush in the morning and it’s just as fresh in the evening when I remove it as when I applied it earlier in the day.
