Orange Blush vs Pink Blush by MAC Mickey Contractor

Orange Blush vs Pink Blush by MAC Mickey Contractor

I got an opportunity to go backstage for Delhi Couture Week 2011 yesterday. Well! the even better opportunity was to get the first hand learning from the master Mickey Contractor himself. What more could I ask for. Yayy! πŸ™‚

Considering so many of us are getting so obsessed about the orange blush, I thought I’d go ahead and learn some things about the orange blush. So here you have it! πŸ™‚


Orange blush vs Pink Blush:

  • Orange blush works great on women of colour. It is not a color to be carried of easily by everyone. Orange blush gives maximum warmth to skin. So if you can pull off sexy-chiseled-bold look, go all out with orange blush on cheek plane and a highlighter on top. It would give you that beachy , sexy contoured look. Also, the fact that orange blush makes you look a shade or two darker than your own skintone, you might want to give it a thought before picking it up. Not many Indian women prefer to go a shade darker to their skin tone anyway. So, it is a personal preference
  • A pink blush gives a cuter,Β fresherΒ glowingΒ look to face. Even on days when you are looking tired, the pink blush would bring the freshness to your face giving a nice glow to your cheeks.
And Mickey demonstrated both the looks on my face to show the difference. On my left cheek he applied orange blush on cheek plane and Gana highlighter right on top of it. That’s the look we got.

And here Mickey applied MAC Mocha Blush ( a mauve pink color) and applied Gana highlighter ( part of MAC Mickey Contractor Collection) on top of it.

I instantly saw theΒ differenceΒ between both the looks.I hope you could too. πŸ˜€

And considering Mickey had done my blush, I didn’t want to wipe it off so I chose to move around with twoΒ coloredΒ cheeks the whole evening. Well! I didn’t mind that a bit. πŸ˜‰

Hope it was useful. πŸ™‚

I have a tutorial for Rohit Bal’s look they did for the finale. Will upload that today. πŸ™‚

  2. Woww. Grt yaa. *I bow to thee oh lord* the Orange is making you look all tanned and contoured and the pink is making you look all cute cute. Next time I’m getting an Orange blush πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  3. Ola! and wowie wow! Am sure you enjoyed ur rendezvous with Mr.MC! πŸ™‚ :happydance: and to be decked up by him – ahemmm!!! :preen:

    And abs see the diff. and guess what ppl are saying here is u r more cuter than just tanned πŸ˜‰ but looks good, both on u!

    btw, would u classify coral blushes (like springsheen and NARS orgasm) under orange? I guess so, yes?? ?:)

    1. NARS Taj Mahal is a nice orange blush as well. I don’t have it, but a friend does, and it is super pigmented. It is also slightly shimmery. Looks great on darker skin tones. :))

  4. I like both pink and orange bloooshes…I just change depending on my mood..though of course I don’t have any blushes that are very strong coloured… understood naaa :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

        1. Not these !! I have both!! sumthng nicer … I kno I am being greedy..but also know that u’ll suggest me apt :love:

  5. i can see the differnce.i think orange would be easier to try now.i shouldnt be scared of it.should i? :whistle:

  6. The pink does look fresher but orange gives such a sexy contoured look!! Thanks fr posting this Rati! :)) I can’t wait to receive my orange blush !

  7. rati do,us din i saw ur hanuman ji tikke vala blush nah isliye i got scared…..ab seems like it can be blended as it is more apt for our skin type.alo;) πŸ˜‰

  8. i want to own a orange blush now… :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:
    one shud always try all kinds of luks n its luking gudd rati.. n different frm the usual yet gorgeous pinks.. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. i know nids.. it’s fun no.. I so loved both the looks. I could see how much one can transform herself with makeup :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  9. Rati..i think you can carry off both the blushe pretty well but i loved the pink one more as it really gives that fresh and cute look on the other hand orange one def gives more of a bold look..personally I would go for pink one :makeup: I think the camera did capture the colors pretty well..or atleast I saw the difference :specs:

    1. yeah the colours are showing but the orange is not looking like as strong orange because of the lights bt i an def see the different. the pink flush is showing. So we kinda get an idea. πŸ™‚ Thankoo. πŸ™‚

      1. :methinks: i recently got colorbar Just Earth and m loving it but now i want more..Rati can u pls suggest a good pink blush for medium-oily skin..plss :thanks:

  10. ratiiiiiiiiiii you a star in every way lady :makeup: :preen: it feels great to be sitting in front mickey and getting your make up done na????the same hands which worked wonders on aishwarya rai,rani and many stars………..people we have our rati who is no less than a celebrity πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ :pompom: :pompom: :mirror: :mirror: will orange blush suit me?i dont know what complexion do i have but very similar to deepika padukone when she doesnt have a zillion lights on her face :specs: :huh:

  11. Though orange one makes you look a shade darker, it looks very good on you..more defined and more contoured… :makeup:

  12. Rati, though you carry off both the looks well – the MAC Mocha Blush looks awesome on you. Great going…love the fact that you didnt wipe out the different colored blushes for the whole day. Love your enthusiasm and excitement.

      1. Yes…it must have been a wonderful feeling..getting your makeup done by MC …that too during such an event. The atmosphere backstage must have been so much fun. I always wonder what actually happens behind the scenes – the amount of work they have to to put in, the pace at which they must be working etc…

        On an aside – inspired by IMBB I purchased my first ever eye shadow palette…But am not at all sure how to go about using it. :stars:

  13. I loved both!! And I soo agree on the moving around the whole eve with dual colored cheeks! :tongue: But I think the pink 1 suits you better than the orange 1! Looks like u’re naturally blushing pink! :teddy:

  14. Hi Rati,
    I am a regular reader of this blog since 3 or 4 months, I just love the way you use blushes πŸ˜‰ . I never cared about blush like stuffs earlier, i thought its just for film artists and models , you just changed my whole mind about blushes and other makeup products. You are looking really cute in these pics :love: . Hope one day i will also learn to use these products perfectly :thanks: (learning through baby steps :nono: :nono: ).

  15. Thanks Rati … I think i am an addict to makeup blogs now :toothygrin: :preen: … Within this short period i read almost all articles here.. :star: :star: .. I like most of them, and i really adore the affability in the articles.. :teddy: :aajanachle:

  16. :yahoo:
    Woow!~ Lucky you!! It must have been quite the experience!! :woot:
    And both the looks suit you real well. But I fell the orange looks more earthy in the pic. O:)

          1. I tried out a similar blush at a colorbar counter…It made me look like a certain citrus fruit. 😐 :spank:

  17. Excellent Rati!!!! both the colors look fab on you. Excellent is that you got to learn from micky itself. I really appreciate your dedication and the heights you have reached so early :waytogo: . I am to deriving a lot of inspiration from you :). Thank you :)..God blesss you.. :-*

  18. Very nice Rati…..looks good on both cheeks…..will try the orange blush next time…… :waytogo: :thanks: :jiggy2: :jaiho:

    now when are you going to share tips from the book you picked from Dubai?

    :scream: :waaa: :waiting: :makeup:

  19. oh and my personal opinion is that orange looks so much better compared to pink on women with a fair complexion. pink has a tendency to look splotchy while orange lifts the face. πŸ™‚

  20. Wow, Rati, lucky you….I would have done the same thing….walked around with 2 colours on either cheek!! I personally prefer the orange blush on you…pink also looks good, but pink is always available and now it seems that orange blush is the IN thing. Can you suggest any MAC / other brand orange blush available in India?? :waaa:
