3 Natural Looking Blushes


Hi guys! Blush was a makeup step that I overlooked for years. Until probably about 2 to 3 years ago, I never wore blush. While I switch up the intensity and shade of my blush depending on the look I’m going for, I love a good natural looking blush! Today I thought I would share 3 of my favourites!

Urban Decay | Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Fetish


This is by far one of my favourite blushes ever. You can’t tell by looking at it, but I wear this shade almost every day! If I don’t know which blush I want to wear, this matte beauty is what will end up on my face. It is very pigmented so just a tiny tap of a brush into the product is all you need to get a light dusting of pinky-nude blush! I’ve yet to find a makeup look that this shade doesn’t go with.


NARS | Orgasm


The classic NARS shade orgasm, was one of the first blushes I purchased when I decided that I needed to add blush to my everyday routine. It’s a pinky peach shade that is said to work with any skin tone. I can’t verify that claim, but I find it works well with my fair skin. It definitely gives a lovely natural looking glow to the cheeks!


Too Faced | Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow


I really love the Too Faced Candy Glow Blush for when I want just a hint of natural looking colour to my cheeks but a subtle glow as well. I always swirl my brush into the product to combine all three shades which is the first of the four swatches below.


Those are my 3 favourite natural looking blushes! Now, I am rather fair so my selections may not work for everyone, so with that said, I would love to know what YOUR favourite natural looking blushes are! Let me know in the comments down below!

  1. How cute is that Too Face blush? I’ve been eyeing them but I have too many blushes! 😛
    Have you ever tried Milani Baked blushes? The shade Luminoso gets my vote as a natural looking blusher – it honestly rivals high end blushes for me.

      Too Faced always has such cute products! I haven’t tried Milani Blushes, I see them every time I go get groceries but I have yet to pick one up! Some day lol

  2. PS. I keep trying to get that commentluv thing to work but it doesn’t seem to. I want it to show a cute little heart thing but it doesn’t. What am I doing wrong? *frowny face*

      Oh weird! Was it working before and recently stopped?

  3. Orgasm was one of my first blushes too! I only started wearing blush a couple years ago as well as I was always scared of looking like a clown and now I can’t imagine not adding some sort of color to my face lol.

    My go-to natural blushes are more dusky rose toned, with my fave right now being the Too Face Love Flush blush in Baby Love. It’s a great dupe for Tarte’s Exposed!

      Oooh yes Baby Love looks beautiful! I’ve eyed it up a few times!

  4. Milani “Dolce Pink” is my all-time favourite blush! Super natural and affordable too.

      Ooh, I’ll have to check that out! There’s a few Milani blushes that I have on my radar that I need to pick up!

  5. Love the shade of the Nars!! Great post.

      Thanks! Yes NARS orgasm is a beautiful blush shade! It’s so versatile!

  6. I love Nars Orgasm too – I’m on my second and I’m certain I’ll be repurchasing a third and forth and so on. It’s so pretty!

    I don’t own it but I’m thinking of picking up Tarte’s Exposed at the VIB Sale – everyone says its the perfect neutral blush!

      Oooh I’ll have to take a look at Exposed! The big blush wheel is out of stock now but I definitely want to at least pick up one Tarte blush… maybe… I’m so indecisive! I always make a list and then I end up straying somehow by the time the sale comes around!
