Current Everyday Makeup: Cheeks.


I usually set up my everyday cheeks products by the tone: I'll have one blush that's coral, one that's deeper (usually a purple toned or wine shade), and another that is more cool toned bright pink. I've switched that up a little bit recently, though. Simply because I want to continue using some of my faves.

MAC Love Thing Blush

Milani

NARS Deep Throat Blush

Mac Mineralize Blush in Love Thing
Love Thing satisfies my "deep" shaded blush. I love this with all my heart (see me rave about it here), and as scary as it may look in the pan (it's not, I promise), it's pretty easy to wear with everyday looks.

Milani Baked Blush in Coralina
While this is one of my newer blushes, I've really fallen in love with it (check my review of it here). It's quite orange, but it's baked so it gives the skin such a wonderful glow. Ahh just looking at it makes me want to go put it on ASAP.

NARS Blush in Deep Throat
This technically satisfies my coral toned blush - but this Coralina could also do that if I use a very light hand. But Deep Throat is easier to work with, and I can just throw it on when I don't feel like thinking too much about my blush.



Covergirl Ebony Bronzer

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead
Probably my favorite highlighter in my collection. Mainly because there's really 5 different shades here - the four strips of colors you see in the pan, and the one color you get when you swirl them all together. It's perfect because this one product allows me to switch it up amongst various different makeup looks.

Covergirl Queen Bronzer in Ebony
This was ridiculously hard to find in my area - I finally found it in a Duane Reade in downtown Brooklyn. I hunted it down because not only is it hard to find a WOC friendly bronzer, it's even harder to find one in the drugstore. It isn't orange, and it actually shows up on my skin. I love it.
