My Blush Picks (+Swatches)

Here are my blush picks! As you can tell, I prefer rosy pinks, and my trusty peach color by MAC…

1) MAC Matte Powder Blush in “Melba”

2) Avon Powder Blush in pink

3) Joe Fresh Cream Stick Blush in “Pink Rose”

4) Bourjois Paris Baked Powder Blush in “Rose D’Or” (Golden Rose)*

The cream and mousse blushes seem to be more flattering in the summer when I’m not wearing a lot of makeup. They blend in well with the dewy skin.

The powders all are great for winter, and I usually have a powdery base. The MAC “Melba” color, however, looks better with a tan in the summer.

It still works in the winter with certain outfits/makeup looks though. Pink usually works better for me in the winter.

The shimmer in the Bourjois and the Maybelline blushes look very dazzling and flattering in sunlight. But if overly applied, it would look “overdone” and too sparkly rather than lightly shimmery.

Blush makes all the difference. Pink, and some peachy colors, are for me! What’s your blush color?

Blush It Up!

There’s nothing like a fresh rosy cheek to brighten one’s face up.

Most women are afraid to use a lot of blush, but if applied properly, it can make a stunning and beautiful difference!

The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

IMG_2703

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

IMG_2699

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

IMG_2702

Black liquid liner and mascara…

IMG_2700

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.

Mac “Snob” Dupe

I fell in love with Mac’s lipstick in “snob”. However, I’m a bit tight with money now, and didn’t feel like spending $30 on a lipstick!

After some research, I discovered a site for Mac dupes! I learned that Revlon’s Lipstick in “Primrose” gave nearly the exact same shade as “Snob”! I got it for about $7 with tax!

I purchased it, and love it! It’s creamy, smooth, and is such a neat colour! It’s a pale pink, that seems to almost have a “neon” sheen in different lighting.

Saved myself $30 and am just as happy, if not more!
