Makeup: Past, Present, & Future (Everything Blush)


While eyeshadows, mascara, foundation, and eyeliner create the base for your every day makeup look, it’s blush that adds a bright pop of color and brings life!

Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite blushes that I have used in the past, the current blush palette that I am using, and blushes by brands that I hope to try in the future!


Maybelline: Fit Me Blush (Deep Rose) 

  • Great pigmentation
  • Flatters skin tone
  • Lasts over 8 hours
  • Always a big fan of Maybelline blushes, because they have always been my go-to blush since high school.



Tarteist Blush Palette (2016 Limited Edition) 

  • By far my best investment in my makeup collection.
  • Love the versatility, because you can easily use as a blush, or an eyeshadow.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Includes four blushes
    • Live – a bright coral matte
    • Laugh – a light/medium peachy brown with a little shimmer
    • Love – a light rosy mauve matte
    • Dream – a cool tone pink
  • Lasts for over 9 hours without fading
  • Product has lasted the past 8 months and has more than enough product to most likely last me the next 2-3 years, even though I would not be able to keep it for that long.
  • Great for using as an eyeshadow. Laugh looks beautiful paired with Urban Decay: Midnight Cowboy eyeshadow on top. It creates a stunning peachy glow that is subtle, but perfect for an everyday look.


FUTURE (wishlist)

Makeup Revolution: Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Professional Blush Palette 

  • Reasons why I want to try it
    • Looks like a combination of a blush and highlighter
    • Blushes have a beautiful marbled look
    • There are 8 blushes, and the colors seem to range from a basic pale pink shade, to gold, orange, and tan.

Benefit Cosmetics: Dandelion Brightening (Baby-Pink Blush) 

  • Reasons why I want to try it
    • I love the small compact, jewelry box-like case that includes a mirror
    • The soft, dusty pink looks gorgeous.

Tarte: Colored Clay Bronzer Blush

  • Reasons why I want to try it
    • There are two bronzer blush shades
      • Park Avenue Princess, which looks like a pink bronze.
      • Peach Bronze, which appears to have shades of brown, pink, beige
    • I love the design on the packaging with multicolored lines that are wavy
    • The palm leaf print on the bronzer blush itself reminds me of summer, vacations, and days on the beach.
