I love blushes and I tend to spend more money on them because I find that they last the longest out of all of my beauty products so I feel like I am getting the most for my money. I don't actually have too many individual blushes in my collection because I like to have palettes so I can see all of my options in one box. However these three blushes are my favourites and if I am ever in doubt about which blush to wear I always go for one of these gorgeous shades.
Swatched: Zoeva Shy Beauty, Illamasqua Hussy, NARS Sin
I only really wear powder blushes, I find them the easiest to apply, and by now I must have almost every colour available. With these three blushes I have all of the shades covered with a gorgeous peach, a pretty pink and a stunning plum shade. Two out of the three I found myself wearing all year round but I especially wear the plum shade at this time of year so much! I have quite pale skin and find these three blushes work well on my skin, although I do have to be careful not to apply to much otherwise it can be a little intense.
My peach blush pick is from Zoeva in the shade Shy Beauty. This is the blush I always grab when I have a dramatic eye or a darker lip as I feel it goes with anything. This blush is a velvety smooth formula and applies so easily. Shy Beauty has incredible lasting power, once applied it is there for the duration of the day. I take a fluffy brush and lightly blend it into my cheeks and I am never disappointed. I actually have done a full review on this so you can read about it in more detail here - link.
Illamasqua have some of the most amazing products and this blush in Hussy is definitely one of them. With this blush you can either achieve a very sheer light wash of colour or you can get a very intense colour pay off, I prefer to have a lighter a look on my cheeks. Hussy is the perfect pink, especially on my skin tone. This blush is one of the softest ones I have in my collection, I actually managed to get it in the sale last Christmas, it was such a bargain! These blushes from Illamasqua can also be used wet or dry.
My final favourite blush is what is almost always on my cheeks in the Autumn and Winter months, it is NARS Sin. Sin is a berry toned blush with gold shimmer, I never thought a blush shade like this would be one of my favourites but I am obsessed with it! It is very long lasting on the cheeks which I expect nothing less from NARS, I get around 8-9 hours of wear out of one application. Sin is well pigmented so I like to use my Real Techniques Duo-Fiber-Face Brush for a lighter application. If you are looking for a new blush for Autumn and Winter you need this in your life.
