Product Review; "Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush"
Costume designer Sonia Kashuk was called upon last-minute to take control of the makeup department when the lead artist never showed up for the shooting of the music video "Funkytown". With little experience, she threw together a look that eventually led to a long career in makeup artistry and soon to a brand that boasts her own name. Once available at Bloomingdales and SpaceNK locations, the brand is now an exclusive to Target Stores nationwide.
Among the arsenal of color, coverage and application products is Beautifying Blush, a matte disc of soft colors available in a clean white compact with a magnetic enclosure. Available in 5 tones from neutrals to plums, this product is pigmented enough to create a smooth and warm look to cheeks but lacks the strength to overpower the rest of your look. The feel is reminiscent of a pressed powder that you use to finish makeup; light and dry enough to pick up moisture but not dense enough to be terribly evident.
Though I wouldn't call it poor when it comes to color, I feel like it's the perfect compliment to "blending". I've found that when dusted with a fluffy brush, I can top it with richer colors without creating evident seams. Or you can layer one color of the formula on top of another to create multi-dimensional color with a satin-like finish. Also used for eyecolor, you'll have a smooth and sophisticated look perfect for special occasions, photoshoots or even strutting your stuff down the aisles of Target.
