Ask Y'All Anything: How shall I rouge my cheeks?
I've recently started wearing blush for the first time in my life. It's kinda funny 'cause I'm naturally pretty rosy-cheeked and prone to blushing at the drop of a hat (so annoying). But I've been using Bare Escentuals mineral makeup for about a year now and, though I love it, sometimes it has the effect of making me look slightly dead. Also, it seems that makeup-provided rosy-cheekness is far more fetching than that natural flush that happens when it's cold out or I'm drinking red wine or a cute boy says he likes my shoes. And besides, as Nancy Botwin says: all girls look better with blush. (I actually don't find that to be true, but maybe it's true for me. Plus the rosy-cheek thing goes along with my newly hatched plans to become either a princess from a Ukrainian fairy tale or Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail.)
Lately I've been using this Cover Girl stuff and it's fine but not really turning my world inside out. So here's one of those reverse advice column kind of deals, where I ask you a question and you give me lots of answers and then I do exactly as you say, or maybe not. Please tell me: Which brand of blush would you recommend? I'm probably not going to spend $8 million, but I'm more than willing to go beyond the drugstore. Please help me; I want to look just like Christian Bale and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Velvet Goldmine.
