File Under Blushes I Love: Le Métier de Beauté

Le Metier de Beaute Blush Kaleidoscope - Politics of PrettyAs much as I love a good cream or gel blush, I’ve always been a powder devotee when it comes to my rouge. With warmer temperatures right around the corner, Le Métier de Beauté The Cheeky Chic Kaleidoscope has me all giddy for spring. I’ve been alternating daily between these two shades in the scope: Velvet Underground, a pure matte salmon-pink; and Dali, a pure matte classic pink. Both of these shades are primed with a base of pure white (which is why it lays on skin with brightness and clarity). Ondine, is a silky matte beige-nude (a pretty bronze for summer) and Electra, is a sheer gold luminizer. When I’m not in a rush to primp, I like to apply Electra on the tops of my cheeks for a shimmery finish. (Side note: I stumbled upon this really helpful guide on Pinterest on how to apply blush according to your face shape.) If you’re unsure how these shades will look on your complexion, I highly recommend visiting the Le Métier de Beauté counter at Neiman Marcus and spending some quality time with their experts. I always leave with a bevy of samples and a Parisian chic makeup look.
