3 ‘Pop of Colour’ Blushes

Pop of Colour Blushes

Hi guys! A week or so ago I posted about 3 Natural Looking Blushes so today I thought I’d go the other direction and talk about 3 blushes that add a pop of colour to your cheeks. So these are less natural and more pigmented. My choices still do blend beautifully into the skin, they just stand out a little more.

Urban Decay | Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Rapture


I think this is the only cool toned blush that I own but I love how different it is from the rest of my collection. Rapture is a beautiful deep purply mauve shade and definitely adds a pop of colour to the cheeks! It has a very, very subtle hint of shimmer but I find it looks more matte than anything.

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.

You Make Me Blush Tag

Hi guys! I found this cute tag on the blog Classy on the Run which is very quickly becoming one of my must-reads! You can find her post here!

What blush colour suits you the most?

I tend to wear a lot of peachy blushes! I feel like they add a nice natural glow to my cheeks.

Pressed, cream or loose blush?

Pressed for sure! I don’t have any loose blushes and I tend to favour powders over cream products.

Favourite shimmery blush?

It’s probably a tie between NARS Orgasm and the Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow.

Favourite matte blush?

This would hands down be the Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Fetish. It’s such a pretty medium pink-nude. It looks natural, yet looks like you’ve added a little something extra to your cheeks. Continue reading
