I have been hitting the blush train quite a bit these past few weeks. The winter time is possibly my favorite product to play around with in the winter time. Around this time of year I am fairer than fair and for some reason it leads me to experiment with blush shades a lot more than other times of the year. That is why today, I am sharing my 5 favorite winter blushes with you.
Best Winter Blush
So 5 favorites, some of the neutral, some of them brighter, some of them very very light. Because I go so fair in the winter time, any shade looks a lot more punchy on my skin, so I can get away with everything. I prefer a lighter and more cool toned blush in the winter time in general so that is the category we are dealing with the most.
The Balm Instain Blush Lace – I just recently reviewed this. I have had this for years and bust it out every winter time, but just never thought of reviewing it. I’m glad I finally did. Lace is a super punchy, bright matte pink blush that works well to give that ‘just in from the cold’ kind of look.
Tarte Amazonian Clay blush Seduce – Seduce is one I wear year round, but I love it especially in the winter time. It is one of those neutral shades that is quite non-descript in the pan, but it looks so nice on the face. This is the only warm toned blush in the selection, which is something I like to do if I want to wear a warmer toned makeup look that day.
NARS blush Sex Appeal – Sex Appeal is an OG in my makeup collection. It dates back to the time when I hardly ever reviewed the makeup I’d buy, which is years ago. But I go back to this every. single. year. It is a very pale peachy shade, which will only show up on the very fair skin tones. But since that includes mine, this is a really nice brightening blush that works well if I am at my palest.
MAC Extra Dimension Blush At Dusk – Another one that I have had such a long time that it has never been properly reviewed is At Dusk by MAC. These Extra Dimension blushes by MAC do not get enough loving. I got mine back when this was only available as a limited edition, but they ended up making this line permanent. At Dusk is the prettiest dusty rose blush shade. I have worn this so much that I have worn down the pattern, which is unusual for me.
Wet N Wild Ombre blush In a Purple Haze – Last but not least a purple blush. The first one I ever tried, but this is not as full on purple as the Urban Decay one I reviewed last Friday. I found out last year that purple blush looks stunning on me when I am very pale. So I went out and tried some more. In a way, this is the blush that got it all started and it is of course far more affordable than an Urban Decay blush.
