Blushes are one of my favorite makeup items to apply other than mascara. I feel like blush gives everyone that healthy flush appearance or that instant pretty if you will. I think we have all been in that situation where we have or still apply too much blush, am I right? I raise my hand to that! I have definitely learned that less is more.

 My Go To Blushes For Everyday:

 First one is the famous NARS Blush in Orgasm: 
 This was my very first blush that I had ever bought when I first started to wear blush and it is still one of my all time favorites. It's a gorgeous pink/coral colour with a little shimmer. 

Second one is MAC Blush in Pink Swoon {Sheertone}: 
Isn't this a gorgeous hot pink? I know right? It looks scary but honestly when you apply it, it's such a beautiful colour on and it's definitely buildable which I love.

Thirdly is MAC Blush in Fleur Power {Satin}:
This is a such a pretty pink/rose colour that gives your cheeks that perfect flush. If you like a blush that is super pigmented than this one is for you. Honestly, I only have to lightly tap my brush once or twice in the blush and that is enough for one cheek. I love blushes like this because my blush lasts that much longer and to me that is money well spent.

All three of these blushes would be perfect for any skin tone. I have other blushes in my collection but these are my top    go to's. 

What are your favorite blushes?

P.s. Happy Friday and for all of my Canadian readers, I hope you all have a great Canada Day long weekend!!

  2. I still haven't tried the Nars Orgasm yet. I know, where the heck have I been? I really want to pick it up since it's a cult favorite!

  3. I have the Nars orgasm but in a cream form. I love it because it makes my skin look dewy but doesn't feel heavy. It really compliments everyone's skin tone!

  4. Wow the pink Mac blush is so pretty, but I don't think I'm brave enough to wear it!
