My Favourite Autumn Blushes



I can't believe we are already leaning towards November and soon Christmas will be here. The weather is finally getting colder and with the change of season, comes the change of fashion and makeup up as well, why not?! This is the best part for me... swap flip flops for boots and strapless tops for scarves and jacket. And go from baby pinks and nudes to berries and darker colours. I've already showed you my favourite lipstick for A/W (here) and now I thought I'd share what I've been wearing on my cheeks this season. :) 
L to R: Blushbaby, Warm Soul & Loved The Best
First one is Mac Powder Blush in Blushbaby, my first ever Mac purchase. It's such a lovely matte rosy shade. Great for everyday. Very pigmented and can be built up to look stronger, so I think it will suit pretty much everyone with light to medium complexion. 

Second up is Mac Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. This one is a beautiful baked blush. It's a peachy/browny shade that looks nearly like a bronzer. It's got a hint of shimmer without being OTT. If you're the kind of girl who does not like wearing highlighter but still want a bit of a glow to the cheeks, this is the one for you. It's also my go to blush whenever I'm wearing a strong eye makeup or a bold lip, as it won't clash with the rest of my face. Not to mention it's perfect for days when I'm in a rush and don't have time to apply much makeup. It acts a bit like a 3 in 1, giving me just the right amount of colour, bronze and glow. Amazing!

Last one is a budget friendly one, Makeup Revolution Baked Blush in Loved The Best. Such a great blush. It might look a bit scary on the pan, but don't fear it. This will work from the lightest to the darkest skin tone, in my opinion. I apply it very lightly and get just a pretty pink flush on the cheeks. I like wearing this when I'm going for a very minimal makeup look but still want to look healthy. It's also got shimmer, so also great as a blush and highlighter in one. This baby retails for only £2.50 in Superdrug. Yes! I didn't believe my eyes when I spotted the price. Pretty, pigmented and cheap. Can you beat that? I don't think so! :) I have a post on some other Makeup Revolution items I picked up along with this blush (here), in case you fancy having a look.

There you go. These are my picks of the moment. I really want to try Nars blushes next, as I don't own any. I have my eyes on Douceur and Sin. So hopefully I'll be adding more to my autumnal collection soon. 

What about you? What is your favourite blush for Autumn/Winter? 

Thanks for reading!
