When the MAC sales girl first suggested it I was really unsure but once I saw it on my cheeks I fell in love with – Dollymix 🙂 It is such a bight color that it would likely turn most people off but applied it is stunning 🙂

MAC Gingerly is the best blush i have ever used.. thats my everyday blush but for something special i gotta go with NARS ORGASM 🙂

Mac harmony for contouring,nars sin(works much better for me witha my darker complexion than best-slling orgasm) and molton brown blushes are all fab for me!

I agree with MAC Gingerly. It was the first blush ever recommended for me from a MA two years ago, and I’ve been using it ever since! Also.. Trace Gold is great to mix with gingerly when I want that extra oomph!

I haven’t found the perfect blush for a special occassion yet. And if any one has a recommendation for me for a wedding that I’m in next week – where I’ll be wearing a “Persimmon” aka orange dress for the wedding party – I’m open for suggestions, please! 🙂

I really love Nars blushes, they have very interesting colors and last longer than most others.
I use torrid, desire and orgasm. For the special ocasions, I go to crazed which is a plumy red with sparkles. After discovering this site, I am slowly being a MAC convert so I tried dollymix, but I still think Nars make a better blush.

Everyday is special and it’s worth to look your best.Way not? For the most mentioned special occasions my makeup is unfortunatelly done by makeup artist.When I do it myself I use Chanel’s Tea Rose.However just very recently you – Christine have given me an excellent idea; to use Opal Pink pigment for highlighting.Oh boy! That looks gorgeous!

i don’t have any special occasion blush,maybe i need to get one 😀
i use 3 blushes on every occasion: 2 Diolight by Dior and an YSL blush,the one with the round mirror 😀
they are very natural looking,You can never make any mistakes.
