I’d pick a warm coral in a powder blush with a satin finish. MAC’s formulas are usually by favourite, but I’m still looking for that Holy Grail. Of the ones I own, I’d probably pick thebalm’s Sexy Mama or Benefit’s Rockateur. Impossible to overdo and always look good!

Milani’s Baked Blush in Terra Sole! It is a matte brown-based pink. It has the muted aspect that I enjoy with blush yet, I can still tell that I am wearing blush. I love it!

Benefit Sugarbomb!? I can’t believe you can see it. It’s the sheerest blush I have ever seen. I have NC15 skin, and I have to layer for like 10 minutes before I can even tell I’m wearing anything.
If I could only wear one blush, I think I would probably just give up on makeup altogether. The whole point is being able to create something totally new each day.

A while ago I would have said NARS Dolce Vita (because I only owned a couple of blushes), now I’d probably go with MAC Breezy (looks great on my skin and never goes ‘sunburnt’ on me), or MAC Sunbasque (doubles as bronzer, can go from subtle to dramatic).

Probably Benefit Coralista. I’m a bit of a blush junkie, but that’s the one I reach for the most regularly.

I love the Milani Baked Blush in Red Vino. It is the most divine blush I have ever used. It’s not matte but it’s not too shimmery and it is absolutely perfect for my skin tone.

Nars Mata Hari, my go-to blush for years as it is the perfect color for my skin tone and applies like a dream.

MAC VIRGIN ISLE Cream Color Base

On my winter pale skin it gives me a nice redish flush, while in summer, on my tanned skin, it gives a gorgeous warm orangy tone to my cheeks.
Plus it’s a cream so hello dewiness!

This is a sore spot for me. The blush I would wear for the rest of my life would be Smashbox Gingersnap blush. It’s super versatile. I love it and wear it a couple of times a week. Unfortunately, when I went to repurchase it, I found out is has been discontinued. I never thought I would be so upset over makeup, but I truly wanted to cry when I found out.

Hands down it would be Chanel Joues Contraste in Malice. I’ve yet to find a more flattering color or formula on me. My holy grail blush!
