hello.. :) Since you're a Smashbox make-up artist, I wanna ask you about the Softlights in Prism. I swatched it on my hand last time and it looked really pretty. Are you supposed to apply it as a blush or highlighter? I wanted to use it as a blush but you think it will show up? I'm an NC25 if that helps! thanks :)

Hey Clara~ sorry for getting back o you so late! Just saw your comment now! Prism is really pretty. It is meant to be a highlight however if it does show on your skin as a blush, use it as one! It may be very light though. tint would look great on your skin tone. try blush rush in flush or chiffon!
