ask the editor – blush

You asked: I’m thinking of changing blushes because my skin is constantly changing, which are the best types is best for dry skin and combination skin?
It’s a good idea to have a selection of blushes for summer and winter, as your skin’s needs change with the seasons. It’s also ideal to have a cream and a powder blush. Cream blush is good for an instant pick me up as it gives a pop of colour and also a hint of dewiness, but is not as long-lasting a powder blush.

No matter what you skin type good prep is the key to wearing all make-up. Ensure you skin is well cleansed and moisturised so you are working with a good palette.

Make-up guru Bobbi Brown is the queen of blush. Here is what she has to say: “I prefer shades that are rose-toned, pink-toned or tawny brown. If follows that the lighter your skin is, the lighter your blush should be… Powder blush is the most popular choice. For all-day blush, apply a natural blush first, and then dust over it with a pop of the second blush to keep the colour going.”
