3 stunning blushes I keep reaching for this summer


My first experience wearing blush was borrowing my moms pink Revlon blush with the built-in brush.  I think blush was the least intimidating makeup product out of them all.  Unlike foundation, eyeliner or even eyeshadow, blush is pretty fool-proof.       

My blush collection well exceeds the average amount any girl should own.  Although I have endless choices, I find myself reaching for these three favourites day in and day out —  a coral shimmer baked blush by Milani, a true pink with blue undertones by Cargo Cosmetics and a dusty peach matte by MAC.  

1.  Luminoso by Milani

A peach-toned pink with a slight pearlescent finish.

I have a total of three of the baked blushes by Milani and each is amazingly pigmented and super affordable.  My favourite by far is Luminoso, which is a stunning peach shimmer perfect for summer.  Milani Cosmetics is a bit harder to find in Canada, but you can usually find it at your nearest Rexall.  

2.  Melba by MAC

A warm coral with a matte finish

Not only is this blush perfect for summer, but year round as well.  It's more subtle than the other two, so if you're looking for a little less colour this is the one (fool-proof, I tell ya).  I usually reach for this blush when I'm wearing a bolder lip or eyeshadow, too avoid having too much colour on my face.      

3.  Bali by Cargo

A cool dusty shimmery pink

This blush is SO COOL, literally and figuratively.  It has a blue luminous undertone when you apply so it gives you the perfect glow.  Feel free to skip the highlighter!  I feel like a mermaid when I wear this product.
