Despite being a bit of a blush hoarder, my hand seems to reach for the same ones over and over again. I’ve always been a fan of blushers, I think they really polish off the overall makeup look and if applied right (there is a fine line) can add a pretty warmth to the face. I tend to angle towards soft pink shades as I feel these suit my skin tone the best and work for me no matter the season. I thought I’d share the ones that have been gracing my face time and time again recently:
Marc Jacobs Shameless Bold Blush in Obsessed
I picked this up back in January, and have worn it religiously ever since. It was my first dabble into Marc Jacobs makeup and the quality of this blush stands strong next to the name. It’s such a pretty warm pink shade that edges into the peach spectrum too so is perfect if you’re keen on either shades. It’s not as powdery as some other blushers so you do need to give your brush a good swirl around the product to pick it up, but it applies beautifully and really lasts on my cheeks.
Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose D’Or*
Bourjois Powder Blushers are incredibly classic and take me back to my youth as they’re probably some of the first I owned. With that being said, I think it’s understandable why these are still so popular as the quality and shade range is second to none. I love how small and compact these are as they fit perfectly in my makeup bag to take around for everyday touch ups. My current favourite shade is Rose D’Or which is a soft pink with very subtle gold shimmer running through.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface
I picked up this Tarte blusher in April when I was in New York, after hankering for one for a few months. I’d heard great things about the quality of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes and haven’t been disappointed since having one of my own. Dollface is a cool toned light pink shade that applies quite sheer making it a good blush for gently building up on the skin.
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush – Rouge Initial
The most recent addition to my collection is this jaw dropping Chanel number. I feel like angels sing every time I open the compact to reveal this gorgeous dainty rose pink shade. The shade has a subtle gold and pink shimmer to it, which isn’t visible on the skin but does help add some depth. Although the most recent, this is probably my favourite blusher of the moment, because it lasts so well on my skin and feels so luxurious every time I use it.
