I've admitted it loads of times: I'm a Blush hoarder! I seem to always gravitate towards the blushes whenever i am shopping. I have so much more of them than i do any other kind of make up product. I think they just make such a difference to your face.
But anyway, as it's finally summer with lots of sunshine and hot weather i thought it was time to tell you about the 5 blushes i'm loving for this season. To me, summer means bright colours and trying new things. I love making a statement with make up, especially with what blush i'm wearing on my cheeks! I've also been loving peachy/orange tones recently, they can look so natural or as a pop of colour.
Recently MUA released some new blush shades including this one, MUA Blush in Lolly, which is a gorgeous soft peachy orange. It's only £1 and it feels so silky smooth on the skin. Worn sheer, it gives a subtle warmth and definition to the face whereas if you build the colour up, it's a lovely pop of colour which would look great with a tan!
While shopping in Selfridges i ended up buying the Illamasqua Powder Blush in Sophie. It costs £18 and is a soft coral with lots of golden shimmer. I love coral make up - face, lips, nails you name it! The formula is wonderfully soft and pigmented.
Another kind of recent purchase is the Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow which is a lovely light peachy orange. This was my first try of any cream blush and i've got to say - i'm impressed! I love the cream-to-powder formula and love that it stays on all day literally! The Cream Blushes are £7.99.
The Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Pink Rose is probably one of my favourite buys ever. It's only £3.99 and the quality is amazing for such a small price. The colour is a dusty, peachy pink which is quite shimmery. They stay on quite a while and just look so lovely on.
The Sleek Blush in Mirrored Pink was my first ever Sleek purchase. It made me fall in love with the brand. The colour is a beautiful medium pink with lots of golden shimmer. At only £4.49 too it doesn't break the bank!
These are my favourite blushes for Summer weather. They're all well loved and are very pigmented and soft. I like products, especially blushes, to be able to be worn in a few different ways like sheer or built up.
What blushes have you been loving at the moment? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
