REAL WORLD USE:
I used the blush in “Cherub” for this look…
This is one of my favorite blush formulas ever. I use it on practically every shoot/client that I do now of days; even if I use it just as a base color, and layer on top of it. I love this blush because, (1) it blends with almost no effort, and (2) it does not budge! A lot of blushes tend to fade as the day wears on, but not this one. It won’t sweat off or start to fade, no matter the conditions I’ve used it under. To apply it, I usually just pat it on the cheeks using my finger, then blend it using the beauty blender. I will sometimes use the Daniel Sandler Waterbrush, which is great at applying and blending the blush also.
In my opinion, these are MUST HAVE blushes for your kit. Yes, a MUST HAVE! I plan to acquire many more of them in the future, but the three colors above are great to start with, and are suitable for just about any skin tone you will encounter on the job. The best part? Daniel Sandler offers a pro discount! Woo Hoo! I rest my case.
