5 Fantastic Matte Blushes to Try

I’ve had several requests to share some more matte finishes in the 5 Ways posts, so I thought blushes might be a nice way to go!

  1. Tarte Blissful — vibrant coral
  2. NARS Exhibit A — rich orange
  3. MAC Mocha — dirty plum pink
  4. Tarte Exposed — neutral beige with pink undertones
  5. Burberry Tangerine — neutral brown-tangerine

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

Peach can be a really wearable color that can look natural on any skin tone.  Cooler complexions will find that peach-hued blushes can help mitigate any natural redness on the cheeks without emphasizing it like a pink blush might.  Warmer complexions are easily freshened up with a pop of peach on the cheeks.  Reader Sirinthorn wanted to see what my five picks would be for peach blushes, and here they are:

  1. Chanel Espiegle— peach-orange with a satiny sheen
  2. MAC Peaches — classic peach with subtle brown undertones
  3. Make Up For Ever #14 — soft peach
  4. NARS Sex Appeal — pale peach
  5. MAC Melba — dirty peach-brown with a matte finish

What’s your favorite peach blush?
