Bright Blushes for Summer ’13


As many of you know, I am addicted to blush. Whenever new makeup collections come out, I tend to mainly pick up the cheek products and not much else. Also, as I have fair skin, blush is very important in my beauty routine; I need to put color back into my face since I’m lacking it.

I don’t change up my blush choices depending on the season as I do nail polish and lipstick, but I do tend to reach for certain shades more in the summertime.


NARS Desire: This may be the brightest blush I own. Desire is a really beautiful, blue-based neon pink. I recommend using a tiny amount of product and a light hand with this, especially if you’re fair.


NYX Cinnamon: I absolutely love NYX blushes. Not only are they really inexpensive, but they have great pigmentation and are very long lasting on the skin. My all-around favorite shade, especially in the summer, is Cinnamon. The only thing I don’t like about the NYX blushes is that the writing tends to rub off after a bit.


Urban Decay Gilded Bronzer: I personally love shimmery bronzers in the summer. I use a product like this in place of blush, on those days when I don’t feel like going for fully made up cheeks (i.e.blush, bronzer, highlighter).


Sleek Blush by 3 in Pumpkin: I originally bought this Pumpkin trio because I was loving that bright orange on the far right, but I was pleasantly surprised by how cute the reddish shade is on the left. All three shades in this palette are super bright and summery. Again I recommend a light hand with these, because it’s easy to look overdone if you aren’t careful.

What are your favorite blushes for summer?
