My Top 8 Favorite Blushes

1.City Color Be Matte Blush in "Fresh Melon"
This blush is incredibly pigmented, long lasting, and beautifully bright! I'm so excited to start wearing this more once the weather warms up a little, it looks amazing on glowy summer complexions! 
2.Bare Minerals Blush in "Love Radiance"
This blush is so shimmery and rosy on the cheeks, but still looks natural for every day looks. Mineral blush is perfect for oily skinned folks like myself, so I especially love using this on super humid Spring and Summer days. We have those a lot in Tennessee, trust me. 
3.Nars "Orgasm"
This is a cult beauty favorite that I just had to try, and I'm so glad that I did! Everything they say about this blush is true. It instantly livens up your complexion, looks great on practically any skin tone, and is incredibly shimmery and light reflecting without making you look like a disco ball circa 1976. Holy grail status, people. 
4.Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in "Dazzled"
I am in love with Tarte products, and this blush is no exception. Aside from how beautiful and natural this shade is, it really does stay on your face for an impressive amount of time. As I mentioned above, I'm an oily monster, so anything that last throughout the day is a must-have for me. 
5.Benefit Majorette Cream Blush
I've raved about this blush in the past, and I'm very much still in love with it. I'm crazy about the coral shade, (which I think is very unique), it blends like a dream, the packaging is unbearably cute, and it smells like peaches and pomegranate. Pair this with a stippling brush and you can conquer the world, one cheek at a time. 
6.Covergirl Contouring Blush in "Sophisticated Sable"
It's been a while since I've used this blush, but after revisiting it today, I can definitely say that I'm impressed. I think a contouring blush compact is a great concept, especially for a drugstore product. I used a big fluffy blush brush for the middle shade and applied it to the apples of my cheeks, a contouring brush for the darkest shade under my cheekbones, and a tiny fluffy blush for the lighest highlight shade on top of my cheekbones. I definitely feel like it gives your face a more sculpted appearance, and for the low cost of around $7, it's well worth trying out for yourself! 
7.NYX Cream Blush in "Natural"
This is another blush that I've raved about multiple times, but I honestly can't get over it. As I've mentioned before, the color payoff is so incredibly natural, rosy, and dewy looking, and it blends out gorgeously when applied with a stippling brush. If I had to choose an all-time favorite every day blush, this little baby would take the cake. 
8.NYX Blush in "Copper"
This blush may look like a bronzer at first glance, but the natural highlights and shimmer in it make it a gorgeous product for the apples of your cheeks. I especially love using this on minimal makeup days where I don't want to use a blush and a bronzer, because this really warms up your complexion without any muddiness. To sum it up, this makes me feel like J.Lo. Holler.
