Like most Americans cities, June is a big wedding month in Los Angeles. From Hollywood hilltops to hotels, backyards and beachside tents, brides will be anxiously walking down the aisles all month long.
The term blushing bride hasn’t been lost on us, but we’d like to suggest a few favorites from our beauty arsenal … just to ensure the bride is seen before her blush.
Sometimes, the right shade is everything. This is one of those times.
Native Essence Pure Pigment Cheek Color by RAW Natural Beauty in Rush is perfect for light to medium skin tones. Free of parabens and chemicals, this finely-milled blush launches this month and is available in three other shades.
Rush is a delicate pop of pink that will highlight cheek bones, without looking like a porcelain doll. Available at http://www.RawBeauty.com
With the built-in brush, this Colorescience Blush fits perfectly into any bride’s clutch. We love the blue-based universal pink of Cheek-A-Boo. Darker skin tones, apply a few extra sweeps for a richer hue. Sold at http://www.dermstore.com.
Thirdly, a blush story wouldn’t be complete without a NARS-mention. Although the popular vote tends to lean toward the coveted Orgasm (pun possibly intended), we’ve been loving the sheer cotton candy pink Angelika for warm medium skin tones lately.
For medium to darker-complexions, try rosy gold sheens like Outlaw or Oasis. Available at Barneys New York, Beverly Hills or http://www.sephora.com.
Blush on, Brides!
