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.
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.
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.
