What Is Your Wild West Blush Shade?

If there is one thing all cowgirls can agree on, other than that horses are the best, it is that blush is a beautiful thing. It can accentuate your cheekbones, warm your skin tone, and give you a perfect youthful glow. 



Picking the right blush color to complement your complexion is simple if you know how to decide on, and stick to, a family of colors that works for you. Sometimes choosing the right blush is harder than getting your stubborn horse to cooperate. To make this easier, we have listed the most flattering shades for fair, medium, and dark skin.

Fair Skin


For you fair skinned cowgirls, a pale pink usually looks the most natural. Adding a bit of shimmer makes this already wonderful look more elegant, a look perfect for those fancier rodeos. For another great look, go for a peachy pink shade. This will give your skin a pretty glow as this shade is the most universally flattering. A dusty rose shade will give you a flush that won't look too obvious or unnatural. Wild West Blush shades to try- Petal, Saloon, and Howlin' Rose.


Medium Skin


For medium skinned cowgirls with a yellow or golden undertone, an apricot shade is usually the best. The warmth of medium skin tones makes the orange undertones of apricot look subtle and fresh. Peaches would also achieve a natural flush to your cheeks if you are medium skin toned. Additionally, medium skin tones should look for a medium pink, berry blush. This creates a delicate look with a little vibrancy. Wild West Blush shades to try-Ponderosa, Roan, and Buckle

Darker Skin


Darker skin tones should try a cranberry blush or brick shade to get a gorgeous, healthy glow. These colors will bring your complexion to life without looking overpowering. A darker skin would require a deeper berry or bronze shade. Wild West Blush shades to try- Canyon, Chestnut, and Rawhide 


Application


Use an angled blush brush, tap off the excess, this will get rid of any unwanted blush on your brush and keep you from applying too much on your cheeks. Apply the color to the apple of your cheeks and blend back toward the temple. Remember cowgirls, the goal is to look like you took a quick ride on your favorite horse and got a little sun, not like you rode for the whole day and got too much sun.

Rodeo Ready Makeup

Rodeo Ready Makeup
On an average day on the ranch, a natural look might be more appropriate, but not for the rodeo. You want a stunning bold look that will stay on while you get down and dirty. So here are makeup tips for a flattering look that won’t budge, can be quickly applied, and has a natural look that all cowgirls love.



FACE

No cowgirl wants that heavy feeling of face products. At Cowgirl Dirt we use the purest of ingredients to give you a full, yet lightweight feel. We recommend our Rio Grande Foundation, Mustang Powder Concealer, and Let's Ride Finishing Powder. This combination will feel so natural and weightless that you won’t even be able to tell that you have makeup on. 

Use a kabuki brush to distribute bronzer all over your face to create the healthy, sun-kissed glow. Use a flat brush to apply blush to your cheekbones, to enhance and define your cheeks. Remember the lights in the arena, or the bright sun can cause you to look flush so pick a color a little stronger than you normally would choose.


EYES

You can choose to go smokey or just eyeliner with falsies. For a smokey eye look, stick to black or blue eyeshadow on the eyelid. Blend it into the crease with a soft brown color and dab a highlighter into your brow bone. 

The highlighter will make your smoky eyes pop even more and make your eyes look more open. 

For eyeliner, only black and brown are good shade options. Apply a line of eyeliner to your eyelid, next to your eyelashes. Extend the eyeliner slightly past the corner of your eye, to accentuate the shape of your eye. 


LIPS

In the arena, you want to stand out. We recommend a matte lipstick. Matte colors tend to stay on longer. You can use any color that you desire, even a bright red if you want a bold look. Top it off with a gloss to give your lips a perfect shine.

For a down to earth, natural look, you can finish the lips off with either a nude, peachy or mauve color. It will work perfectly with your look.

Define Your Eyebrows With County Line Eyebrow Powder


Introducing Our New County Line Brow Powder



A defining look includes properly done eyebrows. You may have good eye makeup and a gorgeous shade of lipstick on, but if you donâ€â„¢t shape and fill in your eyebrows properly, your look is not complete. The county line eyebrow powder is a wonderfully smooth and easy to apply eyebrow makeup. If you have sparse brows, powder goes on smoothly, and you can find just the right shade for your eyebrows. You won't find a brow powder as good for your brows as County Line Brow Powder, and it's a great price too.



Why Choose County Line Brow Powder?


County Line Brow Powder comes in a small round case which is compact and easy to carry. You will love the quality of the packaging. It's sturdy, and it closes completely shut. You can take it with you when you travel.

Regarding value for money, this product has a beautiful texture, good color payoff, and real staying power on hairless areas. You will also find that the hairless areas do not smudge even on a hot day or even with my very oily skin. Sometimes, eyebrow powder won't last long due to the powder on hairless areas migrating. County Line Brow Powder is one powder that does not fade. You will still have defined eyebrows at the end of the day. 

The shades of County Line Brow Powder are perfect. You will be amazed at how pigmented these powders are. A little bit goes a long way. You will be thrilled with this product. It looks very natural and stays put all day. 

Cowgirl Tip: The trick is following directions and getting the hang of using a light touch. Press the powder into the innermost part of the brow and then lightly sweep it up over the arch. This action will produce perfectly arched natural-looking full brows.

County Line Brow Powders have a soft matte finish, and they look natural on the brows. They have staying power and if you want the product to stay put longer, use a primer or dampen your brush before applying the powder. It is not waxy, so if you have unruly eyebrows, it is best to use an eyebrow gel/mascara or clear mascara to tame the hair.

For very soft and natural shades you can even mix the colors together to find your perfect match. We offer County Line Brow Powders in shades of Blonde, Light Brunette, Brunette and Dark Brunette.

Cowgirls, you will be impressed with this product. It will be one of your favorites the moment you try it. We highly recommend applying County Line Brow Powder with Cowgirl Dirt's Eyeliner Brush for precise application.

Makeup Techniques To Make Your Face Look Slimmer

Makeup Techniques To Make Your Face Look Slimmer

Makeup Is All About Creating Illusions.


With the right products, you can choose to enhance your favorite features, tone down some parts, and create a look that works for you.




What you need to know about using the right shades.


This is your Picasso moment. Learn which shades give certain effects. Dark shades create shadows that tone down that area of your face. Light shades attract light, which enhances that area of your face.


If you want to give your face a slimmer look, you can achieve the best results with these simple tips.


How to Make Your Face Look Slimmer.


To do this, you need to work on your cheeks, jaw, and forehead.


Cheeks


For your cheeks, use your contour color and a brush or makeup sponge. Trace a line from your lower ear to the center of your cheek, right under your cheekbone.


Use your fingers to feel the sides of your face if you are not sure of where your cheekbones are exactly. The curved bump right in the middle of the sides of your face is your cheekbone. The contour shade should be applied right under it.


Jaw


For your jaw, apply your contour shade or bronzer along your jawline and blend in with your brush.


Forehead


Again, using your brush, blend your contour color into your temples, up into your hairline on both sides of your face. This technique will help bring out the angular qualities of your bone structure.


After contouring your cheeks and forehead, make sure to go in with your finishing powder and a powder brush to softly blend it all in and get rid of any harsh contour lines.


Use your highlighter and a small fan brush to highlight the center of your face, the highest points of your cheekbone and your cupid’s bow. This technique will help draw light to those parts of your face, bringing them forward and reducing the width of your face for a slimmer look.


How to Make Your Nose Look Slimmer


Using a thin brush, apply your contour shade down both sides of your nose, stopping right before you get to the nostrils. Blend out the lines with your finishing powder and apply highlighter at the pointed end of your nose. You will instantly see the difference.


Cowgirl Tip: For a slimmer face, make your eyebrow arch as high and pronounced as possible while still keeping it natural. A high eyebrow arch gives the face an instant lift because of the vertical pull, giving the illusion of a slimmer face.

Rodeo Dust Bronzer -Use For Contouring.
