Remember how I mentioned in my little Tarte blush round-up (of my wee collection) that the 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blushes look a lot better worn as opposed to swatched on the hand?
Well, here you go, a little look at how I like to wear it on my cheeks.
As far as blush goes, I personally prefer a soft touch of color, nothing too intense.
That’s an odd statement because a smack of blush isn’t always the best look for anyone anyway, but some people can get away with more prominent sweeps of color… Though sadly, I’m not one of those.
The pictures snapped here are taken indoors with harsh camera flash to light it up, hence it could wash some color out. Thankfully you can see a good amount of it still, but lets just say everything looks nicer in person. Heh!
Tarte describes Achiote as a shimmery golden pink, though in my terms I feel it leans more coral than pink.
On me, Achiote wears as a very natural healthy flush – a good mix of pink and coral thrown together.
As a personal preference, I like to wear corals on my skintone because they are more flattering or perhaps easier to wear, as opposed to pink. Sometimes pink feels a little ‘dressy’ to me, unless it is a soft cool pastel wash, but eitherways corals give a more effortless and casual look. A look I usually prefer.
So anyway, with all that said, this is how Achiote wears on me.
If you are a fan of natural coral flushes, this could be a shade to look into if you don’t already have it. The 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blushes aren’t total wow-ers but they are nice to have should you be looking for a blush to rely on.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush retails for S$45 each and is available at all Sephora Singapore stores. This is a permanent item.
