The Only Blushers That Never Fail Me

Hands down to the steal and the splurge...

If I had to pick a favorite beauty product to apply, I'd say that I love me some blushes. It's definitely one of the essentials I can't get by without—that means concealer, blusher, eyebrow pencil, and mascara. What can I say... blushes have always been a significant complement to my appearance and I can't live without it! Even if I have no blush with me, I would just use any pigmented lip products to add a little color on my face.

But over the years, I've been trying various blushers and so far only two of them had always stayed in my stash. I really love these blushers that I often find myself wearing both of them whenever I put on some makeup. And I know, normally you would just find yourself going with one blusher, however these two blushers are worth to steal or splurge...

MILANI Baked Blush - #06 Bellissimo Bronze

It's a powder blush with pigmented terracotta and beautiful shimmery shade. It’s a bit more orange-y as a blush—but fancy enough to also contour and highlight dem cheeks. So this one’s very multi-purpose! I always grab this blush whenever I’m in the mood for a natural-but-effortlessy-radiant look. Sometimes when I feel a little extra (which is actually quite often), I would use this over my favorite cream blush to kinda set it or just to warm up the color. And while it looks so luxurious, Milani Baked Blush is affordable!

MAC Cremeblend Blush - Posey

One of my favorite beauty influencers, Sarah Ayu, mentioned this cream blush—with the exact same shade—as her old-time favorite. So I was intrigued to buy when I found it on sale in Melbourne. And I LOVE IT. It’s not too pink for my skin tone and very build-able! I usually apply it on the apples of my cheek, bring it up to the cheek bones, and blend it smoothly with my fingers, but lately I’ve been using brush to bring out the color more. Especially if I’m going to use this alone—without setting it out afterwards with a powder blush.
