It wasn’t until this year that I really discovered cream blushes, I’d always been a blusher girl – my blush drawer is seriously overflowing – but I’d always preferred and felt familiar with powder blushes. I’m not sure what changed my mind, but I’ve barely picked up a powder blush since.
I’d been circling the Kevyn Aucoin counter for some time before taking the plunge and picking up Liquifuschia, a bright Fuschia not for the faint of heart. I wanted something a bit more daring for winter, a contrasting shade against my fair skin. My friends and Instagram followers were a little shocked when they saw this fearless shade and its not a colour I have in my collection (nor anything near it!).
All that aside, this has to be my most worn blush at the moment, the pop of colour it adds to my cheeks is so flattering and easy to wear. I usually team this shade with simple nude eyes for day or smokey eyes if I’m going out. The creamy formula blends in really beautifully and I’m already wondering which shade to go for next.
My advice? Don’t be scared to pick up a slightly daunting blush, blend it in well using a Stippling brush or my favourite brush the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. A pop of bright colour looks perfect on cheeks, just don’t be too heavy-handed.
Can you recommend any daring shades of blusher?
