Spring Blush Picks

I have been really enjoying the weather recently and it's got me thinking about my Spring makeup bag, especially my choices of blush. I find that the perfect Spring blush can brighten up the face, so i thought i would share my picks!

Illamasqua Excite

This is one of my favourite Illamasqua blushes! Excite is a coral blush with a strong hint of orange and is packed with a lot of colour. I tend to use this when i have a bit more colour to my face, but it gives olive skin tones a beautiful glow.

Jordana Redwood

A light hand would be needed for this blush and the vibrancy of the red would look stunning on fairer skin tones, as well as warmer skin tones too. It is very pigmented and has the tiniest hint of gold shimmer. This blush gives the skin an instant pick me up.

Milani Corallina

A shimmery pinky, coral blush with gold flecks running through. It is a bit more shimmering than Nars Orgasm, and it's a shade i would prefer to wear in the evening due to the shimmer. Corallina does give the skin a healthy highlighted glow.

MAC Peaches

For those girls who want some colour but not too much, MAC Peaches is perfect. It is a soft, warm coral that compliments all skin tones. I love that it's a matte blusher, so it teams well with many highlighters.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Natural Beauty

This has been my go-to blush over the last few weeks and has become a firm favourite (full review here). It gives me skin a healthy Spring flush and lasts on my skin all day!

*Clarins Multi-Blush Clementine

Clementine isn't quite a powder blush, nor a cream blush....it's more of a hybrid of both. It has the ease of blending like a cream blush, but sets on the skin like a powder. It is a deeper coral with a red undertone, instantly brightening up the face.

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush Acid & Trip

I adore these Watercolour blushes! My favourite out of the two is Trip, which is a neon orange. These are super easy to blend, and are perfect for oily skinned girls, as they pretty much set on the skin (full review here). Acid is a bright pink, complimenting lighter skin tones beautifully, but these can be mixed with other Watercolour blushes.

These are the blushes that will be rotating in my makeup bag for a while. The different textures and finishes will give me a bit more flexibility and allow me to play around with different looks for work or when going out in the evening.
