Blushers: The Low Down

With the Summer coming out, it's time to put away those blushers that you wore this Winter and pick out your Summer shades ...

Cream Pigments make fantastic blush shades, especially Emerge [my favourite ever shade as a blusher, especially with a touch of Powder Blush in 'Lover' on top to add a further pop] and Dab [if you are looking for a Lavender blush, it can be very flattering on paler skintones or those looking for a more unique cheek look]

A picture from a recent party! Hopefully you can see how Cream Pigment in 'Emerge' gives just a healthy flush of colour - I'm normally quite strong with my eye and lip make-up so it's very balancing. I find the best way to apply is just with fingers to smooth on.


Cream Blushers are definitely Summer friendly - not only are they choc full of Vitamin E [v. hydrating] but are dewy and lightweight on the skin. Our best selling [check out the make up alley review here] Cream Blusher in 'Rude' is an absolute must-have due to it's universally flattering warm peach pink shade. If you fancy something a little more pink leaning, then 'Dixie' never fails to dazzle, and for olive/ black skin tones, 'Betray' [deep rose plum] and 'Seduce' [warm rose pink] are beautiful.

Illuminators can create a shimmer shock of colour, or be blended out for a long-lasting, water-resistant finish - perfect for the beaches and nightclubs of your holiday destination! My personal favourite is 'Fondle' which is a hot pink with a shot of gold shimmer.

For those who prefer a powder finish, Powder Blushers are smooth and finely milled - and ultra pigmented. Try Powder Blusher in 'Hussy' for a candy flush or 'Expose' for a soft terracotta finish.
