Hey everyone! I get a lot of blush-related questions. So I thought I'd show you some of my favorites (which are ALL very affordable), and tell you why they're so great! Next time you're in need of a new blush- keep these in mind!
*ALL STAR BLUSH AWARDS*
Most Asked About Blush: Milani Minerals in Mai Tai
When I get comments on my videos asking "what shade of blush are your wearing? it's pretty!" they most often come when I'm wearing this great peachy-pink blush from Milani. It's so pigmented and takes very little to show up on your face. Even more vibrant than it appears in the picture. This would be a great summer blush for any skin tone.
Best Contour Blush: Cover Girl Cheekers in Golden Pink
This is the contour shade I use on a daily basis to make my cheekbones stand out. It works with any brighter blush shade on the apples of your cheeks. It's practically like a bronzer but with just enough warmth to look really nice on the cheeks. Also makes a nice contour for your forehead and jawline.
Best Blush for Smoky Eye Looks: Rimmel in Peach
There are a lot of blushes out there that have peach in the name, when they're actually just a mix of peach & pink. If you like that true apricot/peach shade with more yellowish undertones than pink- check out this awesome blush from Rimmel. It gives your face a nice healthy look- without being over-the-top... making it a great pick to wear along with a more dramatic smokey eye.
Blush that gives you the "just worked out" glow: ELF in Flushed
I'm so impressed by this $1 plum-colored blush from ELF. I think it has a great color payoff, and a sheer wash on the apples of your cheeks will give you an unbeatable glow. It looks like kind of a deep color in the package, but keep a light touch and you'll have healthy color that looks great.
Best Pink Blush: Cover Girl Cheekers in Plumberry Glow
In the package this blush looks like a vibrant pink... perhaps something you might stray away from, thinking 'that's too bright for me!' Let me tell you- it's not. This gorgeous pink with a hint of shimmer is probably one of the most wearable blushes for skintones across the board... whether your fair or dark tan. Like the other Cheekers blush I mentioned above- I keep repurchasing this every time I run out.
Blush that's most fun to apply: Maybelline Dream Mousse in Whipped Strawberries
If you haven't ventured into the world of Dream Mousse blushes & bronzers- you're missing out. I wasn't a super huge fan of the dream mousee foundation- but I find these blushes to be even lighter in consistency and more blendable. You feel like you're putting the world's lightest frosting on your face haha :D I like the Whipped Strawberries shade because it's not shimmery- just straight pretty pink color. While this is a cream and not a powder- it manages to not feel heavy at all. love it!
