Fall Blush Flush

One of my favorite parts of my makeup routine is blush. It's like the cherry on top for my look and I love rifling through my blush bin for whichever color I'm going to wear. Autumn is definitely my favorite time for blush as it's an unneeded excuse to break out the darker shades.

Although a couple of these shades don't seem to be available anymore, the general color/shade vibe is still there and a good dupe should be easy to find. First up is "Goulue" the bottom left shade in the NARS One Night Stand Blush Palette. This was a limited edition palette last Christmas and has been getting my love ever since. I try not to talk about it too much since you can't get your hands on it, but "Goulue" has been my favorite blush to wear lately. If you're looking for a similar shade, NARS "Dolce Vita" is quite close but a little bit more on the apricot peach side.

The second blush I foolishly included you can no longer get on their website, but it's quite an easy to find a similar shade is the Kiko Rock Attraction Blush in "06 Visionary Sienna." A dark, dusty rose shade, this brings out the cheeks nicely while still being tasteful. NYX's "Silky Rose" looks to be a good alternative. 

On the lighter side of things is Tarte's "Peaceful." This is the kind of blush that adds perfectly to a natural autumn flush without looking to done up. It's a rosy peach shade with some shimmer to add a little something extra. Definitely a great every day blush no matter what time of year.

the NYX Mosaic Powder Blush in "Silk" doesn't look very dark in the packaging, but one swirl of the brush and you got some great autumn color. The mosaic pieces blend together nicely in a shade that's basically a mix between "Goulue" and "Visionary Sienna." You can definitely pile "Silk" on for a deep, dark cheek if the mood strikes. I like a nice light sweep on the cheeks for some definition and just the right amount of color.

What are your favorite blushes for fall?

  1. I have the Nars One Night Stand Blush Palette and I really don't get on with it! Always worried there's too much shimmer.

    - that saying, Laguna has become my favourite bronzer - completely worn down in the palette.
