My Top 5 "Go-To" Blushers.

Throughout the past few months, I have been using the same handful of blushers over & over.
I don't have a very large collection of blush but its not small either, but I just keep going back to these beauties.
At some point, I am going to have to give my other blushers some well deserved attention but for now, I will share with you the ones that I use most!

Mac's Powder Blush In "Well Dressed"

A favourite of many, is MAC's Well Dressed. This has been at the back of my make-up collection for quite some time, and recently, while looking through I remembered how much I loved it. A lovely milky pink with slight shimmer. It goes on smoothly, blends well and looks good with ANY makeup look. Pale or sun-kissed, this blush will suit my skin whichever. 

Mac's Blush In ''Harmony''

Another blush I found at the very back, oops! This blush is perfect to contour or use upon your cheeks because it hasn't an orange undertone. It's a warm-brown really subtle and with the possibility to build up to achieve the tone that you want. 

Mac's Matte Blush In ''Frankly Scarlett''

 I got this sent to me last year I believe and I never really used it until now, Its a dark-ish red so perfect for Autumn and Christmas. I find this blush quite pigmented so a light hand works best. This blush may look frightening in the pan, but if you know how to apply it, it is beautiful. It is a very intense bright red with a slight pink colour to it. I find that if I am using a lot of bronzer this blush pairs nicely with it and makes it look like I was just out in the sun for awhile (but not sun burnt) . 

Revlon Photoready Cream Blush In ''Coral Reef''
... let's be honest, I bought it because the colour was so weird! But I thought, it's so crazy, it just might work. It is a super bright orangey-coral colour. But I actually ended up really liking it! It goes on sheer but is buildable. I have medium-fair skin and it worked well on me. Professional makeup artists often say that the brightest sheer blushes always look the most natural, and they are totally right! This colour gives my cheeks a natural flush!
I like to apply this blush directly with my fingertips and blend it out on the apples of my cheeks. The colour really does last, and if you’re looking to pack more of a punch, as I said, they’re super-buildable, as well. Revlon is one of my favourite drugstore brands, and this blush is just another chapter in my love affair with them. Just look how pretty

L'oreal Blush In ''Rosewood''

(I did take this image off the Internet because the blush I own, is so not in its original packet anymore! Dropped it and cracked so I'm keeping it in an empty MAC container.)

This is my favourite blush, it looks completely like a natural flush on me. It's the one that I reach for almost everyday. Its a really lovely, slightly shimmery medium antique rose with a slight punch of apricot which looks natural and warm. I just don't like the package, Like I said, mine broke a looonnng time ago, and the brush that comes with it is useless (as happens to every brush-that-comes-with-the-blush)
