Okay “needs” is an exaggeration, lets just say these are 4 blush types i think its nice for every girl to have. As of now, my collection contains possibly 3 of these 4 blush styles. Do let me know which of these styles you own and what are your must haves
1. The “Pick me up” Blush

-quintessential girl next door
Are you a girly girl? Even if you aren’t there are always days when you want that innocent and pretty ‘English Rose’ look. This is the time when all the soft shades of pinks, and peaches come to the rescue.
Examples: MAC Well dressed, Maybelline Dream Mousse in Peach Satin, Bourjois Blush in Brun Cuivre, MAC Blush in Springsheen, Colorbar Peachyrose

3.The” Im a Temptress” Blush
Good Girls finish last they say and this is the kind of blush which will definitely not make you look like a ‘good girl’. This is the bronzey gold blush (most likely with some shimmer) which gives you the sun kissed golden goddess look.
Examples: MAC Margin, NYX Terracota, MAC Tracegold
4. The “I havent got any Blush on !” Blush

earthy shades like “Colorbar Just Earth”
Calvin klein once said “Its best to look natural. But it takes makeup to look natural”. I wholeheartedly agree and these soft, natural shades make it look like your cheeks are naturally flushed. Choose dewy soft pink ones , or earthy warm ones like Serena Van der Woodsen- the less obvious on skin, the better it is!
Examples: MAC Cream Blush in Lilicent, Colorbar Just Earth Blush, MAC Tenderling,
As far as my collection goes, MAC Peaches is my ‘pick me up’ blush, Bourjois Brun Cuivre is my ‘Girl Next Door’ Blush at the moment, and MAC Lilicent/ Colorbar Just Earth is my “I havent got any Blush on” Blush. I still dont own a temptress blush but a little package scheduled to arrive from cherry culture might just change that!
