Makeup Mistakes: Scarlet FEVER

Picture this: You meet with your girlfriends for an afternoon outing and they all ask you at different times if you are feeling ok and one may possibly test your forehead to see if you are feverish. The likely cause for these odd greetings generally are down to your blush. The blush you applied in dim artificial lighting of your bathroom or bedroom is alarmingly bright in natural sunlight. It can either make you look hot, not in a good way or like a clown.

There are some easy remedies for scarlet fever cheeks. If the blush you are using is a powder, you can use a clean makeup brush or cotton ball to brush away the excess. If that doesn’t work, brush on a bit of your natural skin colour powder on top to tone down the intensity of the blush.

To avoid this problem in the future, find the right color of blush for your complexion. Just pinch your cheeks and look for a blush that matches that color.

Cheap blush tip: I recently bought some blush shades by Woolworths own brand of makeup, and have been pleasantly suprised by the quality.  From being someone who generally only likes the big brands blush, the Woolies one was cheaper than my general MAC blush, now I don’t think I have a need for it. Not only do they stay on your face and do not fall off as the day goes on, they have some beautiful shades which really give your a face a “lit within” healthy glow. My makeup kit now is happy to have some of Woolies own makeup in it. Have you tried any Woolies makeup products? Would you reccommend it?
