    I just bought Nars zen and a smashbox matte bronzer as well which I wear together; and they suprisingly don’t look over powering..they give the perfect nude warmth if that makes sense? This fall I think maybe I will play a bit more with zen.

  49. Allison

    I’m not really big on blushes, but I’m am learning the joys of layereing MAC cream colour base Improper Copper with the MAC Studio Moisture Tint (Dark). I use the SMT as a base/foundation, then pat on some Improper Copper in the cheek area, then lightly brush over it with whatever is left on the brush of the SMT. It gives just a little luminesence and coral flush to the cheek. The hint of color looks more natural. I also use the MAC Pearl cream colour base as well the same way (on different days, obviously!). This is my summer blush routine. I’m not sure how it will change for fall or winter.

    Fall: Blissful

    I regularly interchange the three though (I don’t base my looks around the seasons really) and I’m sure I’ll be purchasing even more shades soon, lol. If you haven’t tried them yet I would strongly suggest them. Cheap/tacky-looking packaging but amazing products. :)

    I don’t have a go to blush for changing seasons. I wear whatever I am feeling that day. For the longest time I was wearing Benefit’s Benetint. Now I have amassed a collection of blushes and trying to rotate them. So far my favorite it Tarte’s Dollface.

  69. Avatar of Claire-Louise Claire
