My favourite: Blushers!

I hope you’re ready for some fun because today’s post is going to be colourful! Blush was one of those makeup items which took me a long time learn to appreciate, even though I’ve always had one or two blush products in my drawers since I started with makeup, it never struck me as something which was overwhelmingly exciting.

Thankfully, I’ve grown to really enjoy blush products now from all the different shades down to the textures and finishes. Though I am very particular to certain colours of blush, all of these blush items (except Pink Leopard) come in an array of other shades for you to choose from.

Here I gathered up six different blushers from my collection and grouped them into pairs of two based on their texture/finish with options for both ends of the budget. So if you are ready to jump in, click the the video to get rolling!



Below I have included more photos and swatches of each item mentioned in my video along with any other details you may need to know.
