Autumn/Winter Blush Picks

Autumn Blush Picks

Autumn Blush Picks 1

During the colder months, I tend to opt for a blush to give me a fresh faced look, without looking too bright or overdone. I think all of these shades are all year rounders, but I do think they look especially nice this time of year teamed with a berry lip. 

First up is the Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in the shade Pinched. This blush is very sheer, but can be built up to a hint of colour, which is sometimes all I'm after, especially if I'm wearing a heavy lip colour. The formula of these is so creamy and feels almost velvet to touch, which is perfect for this time of year when my skin is feeling that bit drier. I like to use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply this, as I feel it builds better than if I were to use my finger. An everyday favourite of mine (and an absolute bargain to boot), is the Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks Blusher in the shade Peach Melba. At only £1.99, this is perfect to just throw in my handbag and is surprisingly well pigmented and leaves a lovely natural flush. Next up, and apologies in advance about this as it is a limited edition from last years' collection, is the RiRi Hearts MAC's Bad Girl Gone Good Powder Blush. I just had to have this in my picks as I absolute love it for this time of year. As with all MAC blushers, it's highly pigmented, meaning I literally need the tiniest amount. There's a danger of going overboard with this one, as it's such a deep rusty orange shade, but it's seriously so lovely and really warms up the complexion when done properly. Last but not least is Sleek's Rose Gold Blush, which I know is one of their most popular blushes and has been dubbed as a dupe for NARS' Orgasm. This is another one that can look too much if overdone. It's a beautiful bright coral pink shade with golden shimmer running through it. I find this looks beautiful at this time of year as the gold just illuminates the skin and leaves a lovely, healthy glow. A universally flattering shade that's pretty hard to find when it comes to shimmery blushes. 

What are your Autumn/Winter blush picks?
