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 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.


L to R: NYX Mauve, Laura Mercier Spiced Cider

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.


L to R: MAC Breezy, MAC Frankly Scarlet

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).
