Make-up: Making Blush
|The 2010 foundation and blush batch.|
The Production Process
Starting with a portion of my finished powder foundation, I just mix/sift in additional pigment in small increments until the desired blush color is acheived. A lot of the production time is spent testing the color. It's always a good idea to have ample cotton rounds and a hydrosol/tonic to remove all color completely between tests. Tip: always test foundation and blush color where you plan to wear it (on the face – not the hands!). Pictured is the current batch I am using. This blush was all about creating a sun-kissed, bronze look. I've been quite pleased with the result.
