How do I select the right shade?
After trying the READY foundation, & loving it, I'd like to try READY Blush. I'm 56 yrs. old, use Clear Radiance, but haven't worn Blush in many yrs. As I've aged, I've found that my usual shades of Blush appear too "theatrical". I wear READY foundation in Light & that's perfect for me. What shade would be best for me? My skin tone is light with yellowish undertones; sallow looking. I'd appreciate any other suggestions you might have to "perk-up" my overall appearance (eye shadow colors, lip colors, etc...) I have brown eyes & my natural hair color is dark brunette with little-to-no gray. Thank you!
I recommend you go for a peach-based blush, such as Aphrodisiac, instead of a pink-based blush. A pink or red based blush may be too flashy/theatrical. Also, after I apply my foundation, blush, bronzer, I use the mineral veil to finish it off, and it softens the look of my blush. I really think a peach blush will work best for you.
I am also a yellow-undertoned brunette with brown eyed girl, and I know what you mean about wanted to "perk-up" our simple coloring. Try out the Ready 2.0 eyeshadow palette in "15 minutes". It looks ugly/plain in the packaging, but the light pink I put from eyelid to eyebrow, and then use the darker color all over my eyelid, and VIOLA, I look classy. It stays all day/night, too! Try one of the Plum eyeliners, such as the 5pm. This is all my go-to look, and it seems pretty simple and polished/ladylike when I'm done.
