"Orange blush colors are popular right now," says Laura. But she cautions against some women following this trend. "Blush colors on mature women should be more natural," she advises. "Natural blush is more plummy or pinkish."
If you’re still looking for an orange-ish hue, however, investigate alternatives like a brownish-pink, peachy pink, apricot or slightly golden or hazelnut hues.
It's all in the details these days. It's not just about color and texture anymore, but technique. Laura says a big trend in makeup is precise application. "Women are using more brushes, more tools. That way you can target what you need more precisely," she says. "So I recommend asking a makeup professional for help. Women who get more educated [in makeup] are always surprised at how easy professional makeup techniques are, and they'll make a tremendous difference in your appearance."
