CRUSH ON BLUSH; TOP 5 BLUSHES


ZoeCross_CrushOnBlush_Maxmade_Opt
Blush is often the unsung hero of your makeup routine, and the ‘make-or-break’ factor when it comes to pulling your look together. A good blush gives a light-from-within, and that healthy-looking glow – yet it’s a part of our makeup routine so many of us forget about. Here I share with you my top 5 Blushes to creating a younger, healthier looking you!

Clinique_CheekPopBlush_Peach-Pop

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Peach Pop

No need to worry when applying this highly pigmented blush that it’s going to catch and have you looking red-faced. Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Peach Pop has it’s own original velvet creamy-like-powder consistency that glides on with a single stroke of the brush -even with the clumsiest of hands. Super long wearing – this is my all-day 0r night go-to!

Becca-Cosmetics-Mineral-Blush-in-SongBird

Becca Cosmetics Mineral Blush in SongBird

Put down your bronzer and add colour as well as depth with this 2 in 1 blush and bronzer. Use Becca Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Songbird through the contours of your face – as you would your bronzer- to add shape and colour to your (Winter) complexion. I can nearly hear the chirping of Spring’s birds now!

 YSL_BLUSH-RADIANCE-N5_Maxmade

YSL Blush Radiance in #5

Don’t let the intensity of this rosey-red blush scare you. This sophisticated hue of romance is the perfect colour to compliment a classic red lip, or even layered over bronzer with a nude pout for that mediterranean sun-kissed look. Either way, wear it high on the cheek bones wear the sun kisses your cheeks.

TomFord_CheekColour_Wicked

Tom Ford Cheek Colour in Wicked

Beat bags and tired looking eyes with 8 hours of sleep in a compact. Sweep Tom Ford’s Cheek Colour in Wicked – ever so lightly – inwards from the apples of your cheeks and up each side of your nose. This luminous pink blush brightens and reflects light into the eye area giving a more rested, fresh, wide-eyed look.

Revlon_Melon-Drama

Revlon Glow Powder Blush in Melon-Drama

If there is one product in your makeup bag that goes with everything it’s Revlon Glow Powder Blush in Melon-Drama. It’s the perfect pinch of colour that goes with ever shade – no matter your lip or skin colour. Weather you brush it on your cheek bones for a simple classic hue or powder it on the apples of your cheeks like you would a stain – for a more cheeky finish – this blush as got you covered.
