Blushing for Spring

To me spring means tulips, Cadbury Mini Eggs, warmer weather and bright pink blush.
Well pastel nail polish too, but that’s another post.
There’s no better way to brighten up your entire completion then by adding a pop of pink to the apples of your cheeks. So if your anything like me your skin by now is dull, pale and dry, which is not a pretty look.
So I wanted to share with you my top three pop of pink blushes.

Illamasqua Hussy has me blushing like a floozy.
I’m just kidding mind you I’m not really sure how hussies blush to be honest?
But back to the topic on hand blush!
Hussy is a beautiful matte bright pink. Not just any pink though but more of a warm pink with the slightest touch of coral. While this might look crazy in the pan I can assure you it’s not. In fact applied with the lightest hand this can look very natural. If you have never tried Illamasqua blushes I highly recommend you do they blend like a dream and are a definite favorite in my collection.

Dior Rosy glow blush just magically brightens the skin.
I have just been reaching for this day almost every day this week because it wears amazing on my skin. Unlike Hussy this blush is more of a cool toned pink blush.
Rosey Glow very smooth and very bendable, so don’t be scarred of the super bright color. The color actually self adjusts to your perfect blushing glow… talk about magic right?
Rosey Glow… I even love the name
I have a whole post about this bad boy to click here to read more about this Rosey Glow blush.
I need to stop this because in all honestly I’m annoying myself!

If Rosey Glow and Hussy had a baby it would be ELF’s Pink Passion. 
I would say this blush is a medium toned bright pink and just like the others adds a really nice pop of color to the cheeks. If you have never tried ELF blushes they are a steal. For three dollars you get a blush that competes and out performs some department store blushes. On the other hand if your scared to invest in a bright pink blush the ELF one is great affordable option too.

So there you have it spring is here and now that the sun is out I have noticed how dull my skin actually is. 
Joking, well not really.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear what your favorite pop of pink blushes are so feel free to leave a comment.
