To get that perfectly flushed look every time, the best one to use is your rosy pink blush. It gives that subtle, healthy glow for a natural feel. This the best choice for your "no makeup" makeup looks and is even great paired with a dramatic eye or lip.

For an intensified cheek colour to really brighten up your face, a bright pink blush is the one for you. With this shade, you can opt for a light (but bright) coverage or build it up for an intense blush. It all depends on your mood and they way you handle the brush.   



Peach

Peach blushes are also shades that you can use for that "no makeup" makeup look, but with a touch of summer glow. Its coral undertone complements the apples of your cheeks and works best with a neutral palette. You can even play around with shimmery golds, metallic bronzes, and bold browns to contrast everything. 



Plum

Plums and darker pink shades are well suited for the cooler months of the year, easily complementing the Fall/Winter colour palette. It also has that romantic edge to them, making them ideal for evening occasions.



Golden Glow

To show off your glamorous side, bronze and golden shades are your best bets. They give a delicate trace of golden pigment for a glimmering MOTD. It also functions as a highlighter that can be put under your brow bone and on the bridge of your nose for a hint of sparkle!

When it comes to choosing your nail polish colour, you should always think about whether it would match your look or not. The best colours are those that have been tried and tested through time--red and neutral shades such as cream white, beige, and nude. You can even go for salmon and peach colours for a dainty feel. They go well for both your everyday looks and glam events!

Dark and Edgy

Dark shades such as velvet black, maroon, grey, and dark blue are shades perfect for parties and girls' night-outs. It's also a way to make a statement with your nails as they look edgier compared to other shades. 



Shiny And Sparkly

For the whimsical, fun, and adventurous days, a sparkly nail colour is what you need. It looks sweet and dainty over a pink or purple base coat, while a darker base coat amps it up for an edgier shimmery look. You can even try a colourless shimmery nail laquer on its own for a subtle, glamorous feel!



Bright And Loud
