Autumn Blush Crush

I am a blush fiend, and I just can’t get enough. One of my favourites is a good Autumn Blush. When I’m tired in the morning, a quick sweep of blush is testament to the transformative quality of good makeup. Now that I’m embracing some slightly more Autumnal makeup pieces, I’m going straight for some beautiful blushes with dusky pinks and a hint of berry.

The one I’m reaching for all the time at the moment is this beautiful one from Burberry. I’ve featured it here, but I am finding this shade is just so perfect for right now. The gold overlay has now all gone, and it’s just left with this beautiful delicate berry. It’s got some pink, some berry and some beige in it to keep the shade a good mix for all skin tones. A slightly deeper and more berry-hue is the By Terry Nude Dance. The formula on these blushes is sensational and worth the price, I think. They come in a tiny but weighty silver compact, and the powder is prettily embossed. This one is pretty pigmented, so you just need to dab the brush into the product and then blend it out. It has some lovely light-reflecting qualities to it, so it’s a good one to use when the complexion is in need of perking up.

Lastly, we have the Kevyn Aucoin powder blush in Helena. Truly a thing of beauty! The formula for these blushes is highly underrated, and is one of my all-time favourites. It’s silky-soft and blends like a dream on the face. Helena is a really pretty shade for Autumn because it has that slightly dusky hue to it that keeps it from looking too bright. It’s also neutral enough to complement a nude or a berry lip; the soft matte formula means that it doesn’t steal the show. Kevyn Aucoin makeup always quickly becomes a staple in my makeup bag as the formulas are just so good, and the products always manage to make my face look better.
