I had someone ask me again for recommendations on a purple blush. Purples and plums are great on women of color with darker skin tones if worn correctly. Problem is, there are not many companies that make an all out purple blush. So what do you do? Give up? Why? Especially when you can make your own! Here are two recommendations to make due and still come out with a purple blush.

First things first, I know there have been a few purple blushes out and about in the past, like MAC’s Sakura from the Quite Cute Collection and MAC Vintage Grape Ombre, but those shades are LE, meaning they are sold today, gone tomorrow and they may never come back. So we have to find other solutions.

1. Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream- there are three shades that can be used. Shades 17(plum), 18 (mauve) , and 19(purple).  I would suggest using a stippling brush for a flawless application

2. MAC Pigment- In my book, the MAC pigment is by far one of the most versatile products on the market. So many uses and so much product in one tiny jar! Try Grape or Violet for the perfect purple look.  Because the MAC pigment is a loose powder, use a powder brush to apply
