My Top 5 Blushes

// L to R: MAC Fleur Power, Chanel 70 Tumulte, Bobbi Brown Apricot, Dior Rosy Glow, NARS Dolce Vita //

I love MAC's 'Fleur Power' at the moment, it's a really nice rosey-pink-peach shade that looks pretty and natural on the cheeks. Goes really nicely with NARS Laguna bronzer on the high points of the cheeks, and a warm brown smokey eye.

Bobbi Brown's 'Apricot' is a really bright warm toned pink that works really well as a focal point for a makeup look, so paired with more simple eye makeup and a nude lip (MAC Hue or NARS Dolce Vita for a darker nude). I think this blush will looks great in spring/summer as a nice pop of colour for any makeup look.

NARS 'Dolce Vita' blush is a really nice mauve/deep berry shade that I think is perfect for this time of year. Adds a nice warm flush to the cheeks that makes it look like you've been spending hours in the snow and are naturally that rosy-cheeked! Could go with any eye makeup or lipstick as it isn't 'too much'.

Dior's 'Rosy Glow' blush is one I remember being hyped and hyped about a while ago, I eventually caved and bought it and it is one of my favourite blushes EVER. It's one of those blushes that 'evolves' to your chemical balance or skin tone or something along those lines! And it does actually work, it looks pretty and natural on me but also on other people i've put it on. A great 'all rounder' and can go with any makeup look! Plus the packaging is gorgeous so that's a bonus!

Lastly, Chanel blush in 'Tumulte' is a really pretty pink shade, similar to Bobbi Brown's 'Apricot' but looks different on the skin. This shade is a bit more muted than the Bobbi Brown which makes it more suitable for any makeup look and everyday wear. The brush it comes with is a bit useless but the blush us beautiful! (it also comes in a cute velvet pouch, oooo luxurious!!!)
