Your cheeks are waiting for something. You may not know it, and granted, we didn’t even know it ourselves for quite some time. There are a few things you can do with blush on your cheeks and if you are into maximizing what you are working with while getting your cheeks to flush in way that asks, “Who me?” then your cheeks are missing orange blush. In How To Wear Orange Blush Pt 2., Amena and Lindsey are serving up some bright cheek game that is meant for those who dare to wear their happiness glow inside and out.
Orange blush warms up your skin and looks great on all shades of Black skin and other ethnic skin tones. In a similar way that red blush can and pink blush can’t, it gives you a youthful glow. That’s because compliments what’s already present in many darker skin tones and plays off of the red and yellow undertones of skin which makes it work kind of like a bronzer would. It warms up your skin all while brightening it at the same time. The richer the orange, like Nars Taj Mahal, for example, the better it looks on darker skin.
A side effect of orange blush is that it makes you smile and laugh and act a little silly obviously or maybe that’s just us…being our typical selves and not taking anything too seriously because even though we love makeup and orange blush and stiletto nails, a good laugh beats all of that out any day. (You should have seen the laughs behind the camera).
