It took me a while to get pick a color from the new Nars Dual Intensity Blush collection. The fact that you can use this blushes dry and wet really made that choice a bit harder. Another double trouble/bonus is that you are also getting two blushes for the price of one. The collection includes six combination of shades, covering all your cheeks needs– highlighter, bronzer and blush.
Nars Dual Intensity Blush Panic really stood out to me as a versatile blush palette. Both colors have silky formula and high intensity pigment. Because of the high concentration of color it can be quite easy to overdo it during application. Just lightly tap your makeup brush of choice in the pan and slowly build the color on your cheeks. If you’ve go too far you can blend it in with what’s left on your foundation or kabuki brush. Also blend, blend, blend and also adding a hint of highlighter and bronzer helps. I tried using this blush duo with a wet brush. I was surprised to discover that i achieved far greater control over the intensity of colors. When applied wet the formula is also more long lasting.
Panic as a choice of shades is great for dark and olive skin tones or ideal for when you use some face self-tanner. The colors really contrast well on bronze skin awhile still giving that healthy rose cheeks glow. You can also layer the colors together to create more dimension. Start with the hot pink, light dust on the cheeks. Then brighten it up with some of the apricot shade on top.The combination is quite unique and surprisingly settle. His technique applies to all shades from the Nars Dual Intensity Blush range.
