I don’t know when exactly, but I have developed a fear of blush. I used to wear it all the time, but now I keep it very light and neutral because I’m super intimidated by every other shade in my collection. I used to wear corals, oranges, berries, and soft reds like it was nothing and I don’t know how. I’ve been trying to break myself of this irrational beauty fear by breaking out some of my most loved, Autumnal shades.
The No Brainer Shade – MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul
Okay, so, this isn’t the boldest and brightest thing out there, but it is my go-to on my most blush-shy days. I knew what I was talking about when I said this blush is an all-year-long shade. I wore it to death all Spring and Summer. It gives just enough color to the cheeks to give your skin some life, but doesn’t take center stage when it comes to the rest of our makeup. You can see it in action in this Face of The Day post from Spring!
The Crisp Autumn Day Blush – Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Your Love is King
I got this lovely little guy for Christmas last year and it’s one of my most loved blushes besides Warm Soul. It’s a matte, plummy rose shade that doesn’t pull too cool or too warm. It’s nicely pigmented and applies best with a duo-fiber stippling brush. The RealTechniques one is my favorite. It gives the look of the color your cheeks are after being out in the cool, Fall weather.
The Bold Berry – CoverGirl trublend Blush in Deep Mauve
If I’m going to go all in, I’ll use the CoverGirl trublend Blush in Deep Mauve. This stuff is no joke. It’s an insanely pigmented, berry, mauve blush with a little glow. It’s a bit more purple than Your Love Is King and has a bit of a staining quality to it. You can very easily go beyond overboard with this one and a stippling brush is basically the only way to go. I prefer to use a smaller one like the e.l.f. Small Stipple Brush to apply it with a little more control.
