Sleek blush: left, Rose Gold; right, Coral
Today I want to talk about blush, possibly the most underrated of make-up products. For the longest time I didn’t really use it, or I just used a bit of bronzer instead (my faithful NARS Laguna). I have a naturally pink complexion and that combined with years of being a shy, blushing child made me reluctant to voluntarily make my cheeks pink!
Coral is my new favourite at the moment and here are some of my favourite coral products. I think coral suits me quite well as I am fair and have blue eyes – complimentary colours on the colour wheel right there! And the picture above is them all on my face.
Firstly, the eyes: I wear a nude eyeshadow base with a winged out black gel eyeliner (Maybelline) and mascara (Benefit Bad Gal Lash).
Then for my cheeks I’ve used Coral by Sleek. This is such a beautiful product, a gorgeous coral/brown colour which is warm and not muddy in tone. It is well pigmented but not so pigmented that it is a nightmare to work with!
For my lips I’ve used Revlon’s Juicy Papaya Lip Butter. The Revlon Lip Butters are my very favourite lip product at the minute – they are moisturising, full of colour and give a beautiful shine to the lips. I love them! I adore this coral colour and I also love the Raspberry Pie one which I wore in my Face of the Day post.
For the nails I tried the new Barry M Gelly Nail Polish in Papaya which is just brilliant! The formula is amazing, so thick and glossy, I think it looks like I’ve just had a gel manicure. Definitely worth a try.
So that’s a little run down of my favourite coral make up and how I like to wear it – I have no doubt I’ll be wearing this look throughout the Summer months!
