Being an on-camera actress, I appreciate the effects of makeup created specifically for high definition film. MAKE UP FOR EVER has never disappointed me. I use the line's foundation for my makeup base whenever I'm going out on an audition—it creates visual trickery on your skin—creating a smooth, seemingly poreless visage (even when you're breaking out). This stuff is magic.
I was excited to try out the brand's newly released High Definition Blush, and I was particularly thrilled to visit the 210 shade, which is used on Christina Hendricks in "Mad Men." Being a fair-skinned red head, I know the perils of trying to find that perfect shade of blush that blends in to look like someone pinched your cheeks.
So, I gave this new MAKE UP FOR EVER blush a whirl. I dabbed a few dots on the apples of my cheeks in the morning and hurried off to a busy day, altogther forgetting about my blush experiment. In the middle of the day, I caught a reflection of myself in the mirror, and thought to myself, "you look fresh and awake, like you just went for a walk, with a bit of natural color on your cheeks." I was rather pleased with myself until I realized that actually, in fact, my subtle rosy cheeks were a result of this new blush.
This stuff is so impressive, I even fooled myself.
Find it at Sephora. If you're a red head, try out shade 210.
