Favourite Blushers

My favourite blusher for a long time was MAC's Peachykeen, and while it's still one I reach for regularly, I have a whole new set of favourites that have made it into my everyday makeup bag...


Favourite Blushers

The perfect matte coral pink shade for my skin tone.  It's really pigmented so can be used for a bold blusher look, but applied lightly and blended out gives a lovely natural looking flush.  This was one was a regular feature in my makeup bag for a long time; I'm not really sure why I stopped using it so much, but it's made it's way back again now!

This is by far my most reached for blusher for during the day when I'm at work.  It's a Sheertone so as the name suggests is pretty light in colour pay off.  It can be built up though, and I'm pretty close to addicted to it's lovely peachy tone and gold shimmer.

I can't believe it took me so long to buy these blushers!  I'd heard about them from a few different blogs and Youtube channels but was still really pleasantly surprised by how pretty and pigmented the shades are.  The palette contains 2 matte shades and 1 shimmer and they're really generously sized.  If I had to pick an absolute favourite I'd probably go for the bright coral pink (which I think is called Chantilly) but I'm pretty happy sweeping any of these across my cheekbones on any given day.

In the past six months or so I seem to have developed a bit of a thing for blushers, and I've got a steadily growing list of shades I want to get my hands on from Nars, MAC and Illamasqua.  I can't to start trying some of them!
