Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush is glowing

Summer is waning, but keep your glow is going! Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush (pictured in #500) ($52.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.)  Even if Summer is waning, Maestro Fusion Blush is a flawless way to give your cheeks Summer’s strong glow. Did I say strong? This liquid blush is very pigmented — Giorgio Armani recommends just a drop, and they are right. I found that mixing a drop on the back of my hand with a bit of oil, like Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing face oil ($50 and worth every drop) or La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil, ($300 and ditto), or a light moisturizer, gave me good color saturation. So add a moisture product until the blush is thinned to your taste, then pat the color lightly on moisturized, but foundation-free, concealer dabbed skin and buffed if needed with a duo-fiber brush like say, MAC 187 or Urban Decay Optical Blurring Brush, or if you are a spongey person, a beauty blender. This product may stain your brush, but wash it right away to minimize staining — and you do wash your brushes after each use, right? Let cook, as my girls say on the Drag Race: let it sit for a few seconds, and it melts into your skin. Top off with a light setting powder, highlighter as you wish and you’re good for hours. Really good — it needs to be removed with the type of cleansers you’d use for waterproof makeup, so it’s a great product for hot weather. I used MAC Cleanse-off Oil ($31 for 5 oz) for removal, or Embryolisse Micellar ($32, 8.5 oz)  before a cleanser, oil or otherwise.

The shade pictured, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush #500, is a very natural rosy color with a touch of coral, the color of a ripe peach. It’s warm but seems to suit most skin tones, and the deep saturation of color makes it wonderful on women of color with dark skin.
