As a rule, I do not wear blusher. I prefer to be bronzed and sculpted and attempt to hide my chubby cheeks with absolutely no colour on the apples. However, buying blush, i’m pretty great at that and so I had a root through my drawers (and bought more blush.. erm) to pick out and share with you the edit of shades and which don’t leave me looking like a Russian doll. Allow me to elaborate…
MAC Powder Blush in Harmony: MAC’s Harmony is quite well loved in the industry as a contour shade, which is what I originally purchased it for. However, when i’ve got little time (most days) a sweep of this on a blush brush slightly behind the apples adds a cool toned hue which sculpts whilst still being blush and adding a pretty pop of colour. A great one for beginners.
Too Faced Love Flush in I Will Always Love You: Too Faced and I are having a moment. I’m in love with their fun packaging and great quality products. The Love Flush range does actually have a slightly paler more natural shade but for when I’m feeling brave I picked up this peachy offering.
Definitely not because of the Polly Pocket espue packaging. Dip the brush in ever so slightly and sweep this on in a similar position to the above and you’re greeted with a natural perky shade, which pairs beautifully with a golden highlight… you know how much I love highlight.
NARS X Christopher Kane Blush in Silent Nude: The entire Christopher Kane for Nars Collection is worthy of every heart eyed emoji and a number of hands in the air praise the lord style ones too. I managed to get my hands on the Blush in Silent Nude; a perfectly pale pinky peach which called my name from it’s top shelf position, making my stand on my tiptoes, peer into the drawers and pray for stock. I got it home, I swatched it, I swept it on and I swooned at it’s natural glory. Not a shimmer in sight, this powder offering blends into the base beautifully delivering a subtle sculpting definition. I can imagine it would be stunning on fair ladies.
