Makeup brushes are another one of my guilty pleasures and something I’m willing to splurge on as I consider them a great investment. Today I’ve chosen 5 of my favourite blush brushes to share with you. Each one of them I love for blush application, but I also use them for highlighting or contour.
I pulled out two nail polishes I thought would be similar to Dior Palais Royal (reviewed here), one proved to be a very close match.
I find mauve cheeks very flattering on my fair skin and easy to wear all year round. Bellow are the comparison swatches of some of my favourite shades – each beautiful in its own way and, in the eye of a blush lover, different enough from another.
As you might have guessed from the blog’s name, I have a thing for blushes. Illamasqua Ambition is guilty for that obsession. It’s the first blush I really fell in love with, the one that made such a difference when applied to my ghostly skin.
Illamasqua Throb is my all time favourite red cream. It’s described as a “blood red” by Illamasqua, and although it’s a slightly darker red I wouldn’t say it’s a “blood red” dark. Under natural light it’s a bright, slightly muted cool toned red.
