Top 5 Favourite Affordable Blushes | Swatches

Sunday, 26 October 2014

Blush was always the most scariest make-up product that I stayed well away from why?

Because having a face that consists of permanent blushed cheeks I totally didn't want to resemble a clown.

A few years later having grown more confident and less red in the face after mascara blush has to be my most loved product, it just frames the face giving me a lovely natural glow, livening up my complexion.

First up my most used blush has certainly been the best which is the Natural Collection in shade SweetCheeks £1.99, this powder formula can be a little bit cakey if too much is applied purely as the colour can look not so natural, however using the right amount gives a lovely autumn out in the cold finish, which lasts with the right base up to 6 hours or more.

Having pale skin choosing the right shade of blush

can be difficult,so anything other than pink doesn't interest me. Although peach colours look great if I do say so myself this has a gorgeous mineral sheen finish which its so long lasting its insane.

Hervana Benefit Blush £23.50 was the one I’ve always wanted to try and I did just that, from it's light fresh scent to the perfectly put together shades with added shimmer it creates a canvas helping you go from day to night depending on how intense or how lightly you apply this blush it definitely is worth every penny.

Now an affordable blush has to be the Elf shimmering shade in Tickled Pink £3.95 this product is one I reach for on days I don't want a particularly made up face, a swish of this on the cheeks leaves me with a glow that's just what I look for on days off.

Last of all trying new formulas always makes me wary so obviously why not try a cream finish from Bourjois Nude Velvet 01 £7.99 this has taken me time to get used to also finding the right brush to applicate can be tricky but mixed with a stipple brush and a little patience this cream to powder finish leaves a bright pinky coral illuminated finish. 

Eco Eye Tool Brush Set Review

Handy compact and essential.

Eye brushes can be the best makeup accessory you'll ever invest in, you really can not have too many.

When it comes to trying new colours or a matte shade that i'm sure will look amazing.
 I always ruin it by using a brush with left over pigment and it just angers me, maybe i should clean them more often but when they don't dry in time its a pain so why not extend your collection instead.

So that's what i did...

A Large Eye brush
Angled Crease Brush
Petite Eye Shading Brush
Highlighting Brush
Smudge Brush
Travel Bag Cosmetic Case

From super soft natural fibres to bamboo handles and recycled pouch to house them in they really are such an affordable set, sizewise, they're petite enough making them perfect for travel on the go.

having washed and used them now for some time they haven't shed or even become mishaped.

They pick the product up well, helping you pack on as much or as little as you require they certainly work best at finishing the look, just blending everything together with the  Smudge Brush then using the highlighting brush just under the brow to perfect your look then you'll be ready to face the day.
