My fav blushes and highlighters.

Look at all this sexyness. *Whistles*Clockwise
Why so much peach you ask? I'm not big on pink blushes, I prefer peach, corals, oranges, and neutrals. I feel they look best on my skin tone. I do own pink blushes but they don't get as much love as these guys do. 
Clockwise Illamasqua Create (Matte honey colored, perfect neutral for us darker girls;) Love this one paired with a smokey eye), NARS Taj Mahal, Elf Candid Coral (Sheer shimmery Peach with a little pink thrown in), Illamasqua Excite (Matte bright peach), MAC Peaches (Matte sheer peach), MAC Nuance (Sheer shimmery mineral neutral peach), Illamasqua Lover (Matte light peach). Then in the middle on the left Fyrinnae Enchant (Bright orange with hot pink shimmer, HOT), and Bare Escentuals  Vintage peach (Loose shimmery peach).

Aren't they hot?? L-R Nuance, Lover, Peacher, Create, Taj Mahal, Candid Coral, Excite, Vintage Peach, and Enchant.

Now, onto the highlighters!

The trick is to use a little just at the top of the cheekbones, for me anyway. I don't like to over do it. So I use just a little at a time. Just enough to highlight without looking heavy. Sometimes applying with clean fingers works better and blends better than applying with a brush.

NARS Hungry Heart Duo

Vered Romance (neutral pink) Vered Bone (Champagne) These are e/s I love to use as highlighters

Clockwise Porcelain pink, Shimpagne, and Cheeky bronze MAC MSFs

Shimpagne, Porcelain Pink, Cheeky Bronze, Hungry Heary Dup,  Bone, and Romance.

And bonus! FOTD!

Yup, that's a tree branch. At first, I couldn't get the sun to work in my favor downstairs...

Or upstairs!

And then..It finally worked!

  1. Nice swatches, I love peach blush. You have very good taste in makeup, I must say. I have had my eye on the NARS Hungry Heart duo for quite some time, it looks really pretty!

  2. Oh me too, It works with any look without looking like too much. Oh why thank you! ;)
    It's a fabulous duo, you must go to Sephora some time and swatch it. :)
