Top Five Spring Blushes

IMG_2738

It happens every spring: I become obsessed with all things blush, bronzer, and highlighter. I’ve been swapping out my blushes nearly every day, but these are the ones in heavy rotation (and so perfect for the spring weather):

NYX Blush in Cinnamon: I’m a big fan of orange blush and orange lipstick, and this one from NYX is not only a stellar price, but the pigmentation is what you’d dream of getting from a high-end product.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush: This blush is unique because it’s a highlighter and blush in one. It’s subtle but buildable, and the finish is exactly what you’d expect: luminous.

Milani Powder Blush in Coral Cove: These new rose blushes from Milani are just incredible, but my favorite is “coral cove.” I don’t foresee myself ever finishing one of these blushes because there is so much product packed in the compact.

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow: This one is the sheerest of the bunch, but it’ll give your cheeks a nice, glowing finish. The three separate colors in this blush work together seamlessly.

Milani Baked Blush in Coralina: These baked blushes are absolutely amazing, but Coralina is a dead ringer for NARS’ Orgasm blush. If I were you, I’d say my money and go with the Milani version instead.
