MILANI COLOR HARMONY BLUSH PALETTE

$13 USD//FAVORITE SHADE:BRONZE BURST

These blush palettes contain 4 shades that work in harmony to sculpt, highlight, and add warmth to the face. The shades are ultra-pigmented yet blendable and can work on a huge variety of skin tones (which is very important to us here at Pur Opulence). I like using a mix of these colors to get the perfect shade for my tan skin, I swirl my brush in different colors as I feel fit and use the golden highlight in the 02 Bronze Burst palette for a really glowy look. 

CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ CREAM BLUSH

$60 USD//FAVORITE SHADE:1 CRANBERRY

The Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Blushes are definitely a luxury favorite. These can be applied easily to the apples of your cheeks with your fingers. They blend seamlessly and leave behind a very subtle natural flush to the cheeks. They go on sheer and have a super dewy sheen that acts as a natural highlight if you're looking for a very soft look. I also apply this with the Clé de Peau Blush Brush which allows for targeted application.

MARC JACOBS AIR BLUSH SOFT GLOW DUO

$42 usd//FAVORITE SHADE:night fever & hot stuff 508

The Marc Jacobs Air Blush is definitely one of the most unique blushes I've tried. The shades transition with a mixed gradient that allows you to pick more or less of either color or you can swirl your brush in it to blend them together. It gives a very natural flush to the cheeks and I hold a great deal of appreciation for Marc Jacobs' signature sleek compact with a mirror that makes it great for travel. 

LE MÉTIER DE BEAUTÉ AFTER GLOW BLUSH

$50 USD//FAVORITE SHADE: PASSIONNE

The After Glow Blush from Le Métier de Beauté combines a highly pigmented blush with a creamy metallic highlighter which you can either use separately or swirl together to get a shimmery sheen. I personally apply the highlight with a fan brush on the tops of my cheekbones and apply the blush with a regular blush brush. The colors in the duo are made to compliment eachother and work with loads of different skin tones. I recommend using a light hand as these are very pigmented, and build according to your personal preference.

WANDER BEAUTY ON-THE-GLOW BLUSH

$42 USD//FAVORITE SHADE: BERRY WHISPER

The Wander Beauty Blush and Illuminator Duo is a cream-to-powder stick form duo that has a sheer blush on one end and a creamy highlighter on the other. One of my favorites for a natural flush, Wander Beauty's signature Berry Whisper shade works well with deeper skin tones as well as fair tones due to it's sheer and buildable color.
