Maybe it’s the Southerner in me, but blush is my “instant pretty” and I have been known to go a little overboard with it from time to time. I’ve learned that less is more, especially if you have the right color for your skin tone.
Here are some of my favorites for everyday:
NARS BLUSH IN ORGASM: Ok, somewhat offensive name aside, this blush has been one of my favorites for a long time and I swear it looks amazing on everyone.
bareMINERALS BLUSH IN FRUIT COCKTAIL: I love to use this super pink blush when I have more of a tan because the contrast really makes your cheekbones stand out.
BENEFIT BENETINT LIP AN CHEEK STAIN: Some people are scared off by stains, but they’re much easier than you think! Before I apply my foundation I just apply three vertical lines to my cheekbone and blend QUICKLY. This sets fast and will last all day long. You can even put some on your lips and people will think you just ate a cherry popsicle!
MALLY BEAUTY 24/7 ILLUMINATING BLUSH IN DEEP: This one of my most recent favorites and I absolutely love it, especially for summer. You just blend the glow (the color on the left) on to your cheekbones and then swirl a little blush (color on the right) on top for a super natural look that will also last you throughout the day.
NARS BLUSH IN GAIETY: When I first saw this blush at the NARS counter my friend, Cassie, and I laughed because it looked like a color only Barbie could pull off. After trying it, I fell in love and use this any day that my skin is feeling (for lack of better words) “blah.” I promise, it’s not nearly that pink after you apply it to your cheeks and it gives your face a healthy glow.
