Summer Blushes

Hello Readers : )

Its getting warmer here in Southern California, and time to use some more pink, shimmery summer blushes. : )

I love wearing blush to look more like I've been in the sun and the following blushes are my favorite to achieve this look.

E.l.f blush in Pink Passion is a gorgeous, matte hot pink shade. I like to apply this with a brush that isn't very dense, like the forever 21 brush I mentioned here. Because this blush is quite pigmented, a light hand is key when applying. This particular blush is great when applied on the cheekbones and a very light dusting along the temples and bridge of the nose, like you would a bronzer, to get a look as if you just been out in the sun.

NYX Blush in Rose Garden is a warm toned pink, with a bit of coral shimmer. This is a beautiful blush and is nicely pigmented, though a light hand or brush that isn't very dense would be best. This blush looks gorgeous along the cheekbones as well as swirled around the apples of the cheeks for a youthful flush and glow.

Milani's Baked Blush in Dolce Pink is a bit similar to the NYX blush, but isn't as pigmented, and has more gold shimmer rather than coral. Because it isn't as pigmented, it is very easy to apply along the cheeks without looking like a disco ball. This blush would be perfect for days when you're going to the beach and are wearing minimal makeup. 

Maybelline's Fit Me! blush in Deep Coral is as the name suggests, a coral shade with very small amounts of shimmer and probably the most "every-day" blush" out of all these. This is the blush you could wear with more sophisticated makeup, and still look like you've been in the sun. It's nicely pigmented and is very gorgeous on the skin.

L'Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Peach is a cream blush. There is no shimmer, just a very gorgeous peachy-coral color. When applied, it gives a very healthy, natural color to the cheeks and is prefect for warm, summer weather.

Ulta Extreme Wear Blush in Peach Glow is a cream blush with shimmer, although the packaging says 'matte finish', I find this blush does not ever look matte. Compared to the L'Oreal cream blush, I would apply this with a stifling brush rather than my fingers to get the best look possible. Its very gorgeous and is great for some glow. : )

I hope this was helpful. : ) Thank you for reading.
