A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting make-up artist Daniel Sandler. One product I’ve heard great things about is his Watercolour Fluid Blusher. Watercolours reminds me of my art lessons which was my favourite thing to do in art classes so the idea of watercolours for the face sounded great.
But what ones would I try? There are 10 shades in total. Daniel suggested ‘Spicey’ would be perfect for my skin tone. It’s a lovely peachy pink shade that gives me an instant warm glow. It is a very runny liquid (well its name should suggest that) to work with but it is easy to get to grips with. The first thing I was fascinated with though was the glimmering shimmer.
It is silicone based oil free formulation (so it doesn’t clog pores and suits every skin type) and is water resistant too. I can confirm this as I went swimming and the blusher hadn’t budged after 40 lengths.
I used a stippling brush by Real Techniques to dab the blush on the apples of my cheeks. I’ve tried it with my fingers as well. You just need a couple of drops for instant radiance and it is easy to build up the desired look you want. It also very light to wear, sets with your foundation effortlessly and fine to wear on its own as I’ve often done so.
I’m going to be bridesmaid for one of my best friend’s wedding this coming weekend in Scotland and I will definitely be taking the watercolour blush with me.
