Blushing Beauty

Unless you’re a Burlesque girl, nobody I know wants to look like a painted lady. Unfortunately, those with ivory skin like me have a few problems finding the right blusher. No more! After spending a small fortune I must admit MAC have come up trumps for me. I will now never go anywhere else.

Not only does the blusher come in the sleek black pots, they’re also refillable – so you can help the planet while looking fab! They say variety is the spice of life and MAC certainly seem to live by this mantra. Anyone that’s ever been into MAC knows how many shades and finishes each blusher comes in, which can be daunting to someone who’s trying to find something that perfectly compliments their skin tone. If in doubt, always ask. If you’re like me and have white skin and red or strawberry blonde hair, generally you should be looking for peachy coral shades and dusky pinks.

Two of my favourites are Fleur Power, with a satin finish, and Gentle, a powder mineral blush with a pearly shimmer which you can layer on to enhance those cheekbones! The latter is my favourite as everyone I know tells me I look radiant when I wear it! Fleur Power is a great general everyday blush when keeping your makeup minimal. MAC Blush is pretty pricey at £16.50 per pot but they’re a great investment as the colours are amazing and they last forever! Just make sure you invest in a large blusher brush to get the most out of your product and ensure you apply evenly across your cheekbones.
