Spring into Summer with Blush



Blush is such an essential part of my makeup routine, so I thought I would share with you girls my favorite blushes of the moment and ones I will be using A-LOT in the upcoming summer months. What I also love about these blushes is most of the colors would look good on many different skin tones, even though it may not look that way with my pale arm below. I always put my blush on last in my routine (no reason why) and that step always makes me feel like I am ready to conquer the day. Try it out, maybe you will feel that way too!

Benefit Rockateur

I have had this product since it made its debut last year. I really love how it is the perfect rosy-tan color. You can totally get away with using no bronzer when you apply this. So it’s great for “I have no time for anything” mornings. It may look super shimmering in the packaging, but I promise its the perfect about of dewy/glowy finish on the cheeks.

Dior Nude Tan Paradise Blush and Bronzer Duo

This is such a beautiful product. The packaging, the colors, the little Dior brush it came with, heaven!! This made its debut last summer and I went running for it (so unlike me, NOT!). I love to swish my brush all over this and it creates the most gorgeous bronzy/tan color, they did a good job with naming it. Now, don’t be mad at me, this is currently unavailable online, but I am pretty sure they will bring this back out during the summer again. So be on the lookout!

NARS Madly

I love this because it is perfect for not being so “blushy” if you know what I mean (just go with me on this one). Perfect for you gals out there who don’t like the pinky tone in most blushes. It leaves a soft tan color, but still brightens you up. Highly recommend you just try it on and you’ll see what I mean.

Clinique Cheek Pop in Plum Pop

Super crazy color in the packaging, super gorgeous on. I have been wearing this almost everyday. I love to put it right behind my the apples of my cheeks right after I put on my bronzer. The texture to this blush is so lovely too, very buttery. Clinique came out with four different shades as well in the line, which are also very pretty. Check ‘em out!

MAC Power Blush Blushbaby

Another go-to when I don’t want my blush to stand out too much. I love using this one when I have a bad blemish on my cheek because it has ZERO shimmer to it. It also has pretty good staying power. This is one of the first MAC blushes I owned and love it as much since the first day I bought it. That says a lot people.

Hope you found this useful and helpful. What are your favorite blush/blushes of the moment? I’m always up for a new blush recommendation.

Love Always Your Miami Beauty Girl,

    I personally have always loved NARS “orgasm” since its a peachy pink hue perfect on my lighter skin, but I will definitely try some of these out next time i’m at Sephora :)

      I love Orgasm too! It’s always a good back up when you don’t know what color blush to wear. It’s so versatile!
