Blushers are one of my items I feel the need to do a big shift around with first when Autumn draws in. Out go the bright corals and peaches, and in come a few more subtle colours, although a few brights stick around for those dull skin days guaranteed around the colder months.

I recently picked up No7 Honey in Boots 3 for 2, which is a pretty musky brown peach colour, that surprisingly looks really natural on my pale skin, and means I can usually go without contour on my lazier days too. I haven't bought a No7 blush in ages, but I am disappointed to see the size has shrunk from 5g, to 3g, and I'm sure the price hasn't changed! Another musky shade is Natural Collection Sweet Cheeks, a pretty natural shade of pink with the slightest hint of brown in there. Both are great for when I want a more relaxed look with my make-up.

Sleek Rose Gold is up there with my all time favourite blushers, and said to be a great dupe for Nars Orgasm. It's a beautiful peach colour with gold shimmer running through, so I do have to be aware of being too heavy handed, but it gives the skin a great glow and flush of colour. Dainty Doll 002 is a similar shade, slightly more pink, but with the same great shimmer. It's a cream to powder finish so sticks around for ages too. Another cream favourite is Topshop Flush, a gorgeous peach toned pink; definitely not for the faint hearted, but perfect for dull winter days!

  3. I love the look of sleek but i'm incredibly heavy handed so may not be able to do it v. well!


  4. I'm very lazy about my make up and blusher is a complete essential to make me look alive and awake, I tend to use the same shades all year but maybe I need to think about switching when my skin is paler
