Top Blush Picks for Autumn 2013

Most people know that I am a huge fan of blush. Being so fair, I find that blush makes a huge difference in making me look alive, as well. But regardless of skin tone, here are my favorite blushes for autumn, with many of them being old favorites.

NARS_Sin

NARS Sin

NARS Sin is a cool-toned berry, that actually doesn’t look like much in the pan, but it looks great on the cheek. It’s a great blush to have for autumn because it is a unique shade, but still neutral at the same time.

NYX Mauve is a more recent addition to my collection (thanks to Ipsy) and it has become one of my favorites. This pinky-mauve is a great staple blush to own because it goes with pretty much everything. About Laura Mercier Spiced Cider – I’m not going to lie, I originally purchased this blush last autumn because I loved the name. But, I was very pleasantly surprised by how great this brown-orange shade looks on the skin.

MAC Breezy is a deep plum. This blush is in the Sheertone Shimmer finish, so it goes onto the skin fairly sheer (but it is buildable). If you want a vibrant blush for autumn but are a bit afraid or unsure, I recommend Breezy. And then there was MAC Frankly Scarlet, the scariest of the lot. This bright red blush is actually not as terrifying as it looks; a tiny amount gives a very natural, rosy flush. But remember – a little bit goes a long way.

Which shade is your favorite? What are your top blushes for fall?

    I’m also a huge blush fan. I like lancôme miel glacé, covergirl simply ageless i and in plum and tarte dollface a lot for this season. Anything muted, dusky or plum is always great on fair skin with medium or dark hair.

    I’ve tried Nars Sin a few times because I really, REALLY want it to look good on me. There’s a photo on MUA of the most “degage”, sophisticated looking woman wearing this and I had such high hopes but even the makeup artist said it wasn’t a great shade for me. Frankly Scarlet is one of my huge blush loves, though, along with a few discontinued MAC shades (Hushabye and Conjure Up).
