‘SHE’S SEDUCTIVE’ VELVET BLUSH by Patrick Ta
This is the blush that got me into blush. Since my skin is so fair, I was always against the idea of having anything too colourful on my cheeks. She’s Seductive is a gorgeous rosy brown that acts like the most stunning bronzy flush. It works beautifully with pinky hues on the eyes, and icy rose- or mauve-toned highlighters like Capri by NARS and Incandescent Strobe by Hourglass, respectively. With an intensely pressed formula, She’s Seductive is neat and easy to apply and the pigmentation can be manipulated to be sheer or more powerful. Unfortunately, the product shots online make this blush look very plumy – don’t worry, it isn’t, it’s a rosy brown.
‘DIFFUSED HEAT’ AMBIENT LIGHTING BLUSH by Hourglass
Hourglass are known for their stunning marble-effect pressed powders. With gorgeous pigment woven throughout a complimentary tone of the brand’s iconic Ambient Lighting Powder, these blushes provide a gorgeous and luminous wash of colour and a formula which will only make your skin look better. Given that I have a warm undertone to my fair skin, Diffused Heat is my current favourite. This corally tone gives a radiant and flattering flush, and works beautifully with golden and copper eyeshadows.
‘SHE’S SECURE’ VELVET BLUSH by Patrick Ta
Last but certainly not least, we have She’s Secure. She’s Secure is the blush I go to when I want a subtle wash of colour – nothing overpowering, but still effective. As a muted apricot colour it works beautifully with pinks, golds and coppers, and it blends in effortlessly with bronzer too.
