I never understood why brides aimed to have the perfect bridal glow – until I became a bride myself.
The ‘bridal glow’ came naturally, a flush made of feelings of love, excitement, nervousness, and anticipation as I walked down the aisle towards a future with my husband.
But that flush was also due in part to the *secret revealed* Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush that I wore for both the garden wedding and dinner banquet. Heh heh.
I was taken aback by the neon pink slab of powder when I first saw my MUA taking it out of her bag, but she assured me it was a blush that fits 80% of her clients.
– Beautiful 3D Dior monogram –
When applied, it indeed looked natural and nothing like the scary neon pink that screamed the 80s.
In the months following my wedding, I hunted down this blush but always got put off by the price tag. =O Besides, when it was my turn to swatch it, I could not get past the bizarre neon pink. When I decided to bite the bullet and get it, it was ALWAYS out of stock! It was many months later that I finally found it at NEX Sephora and since there was a 20% Sephora sale, HAD.TO.GET.IT.
So I brought it home, tried it, and absolutely hated it.
It made my face look bloated, like I got smacked on my left cheek, then the right. My many years of playing with blushes meant nothing in the face of Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush. I could not get the application right and after the third attempt, I gave up. It stayed abandoned in my makeup mess for many months before I picked it up again.
This time, I think I’m getting the hang of it! Funny how this is happening considering I changed nothing in my application. Oh okie, maybe a little, which is a lot. Lol.
