Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink with either Nectar Shimmerbrick or the Balm Hot Mama dusted lightly over for an apricoty coral glow.

For pink, MAC Band of Roses with Dior Pop Diamond Skin Shimmer!

I like to pair MAC Dainty with Rhapsody in Two for a subtle daytime glowy look. Urban Decay Moonshine Cream Highlight also gives a really pretty glow.

I do the same thing with vanilla shades of eye shadows often – high metallic ones at night only with lighter on the metallic in daytime.

I love Mac mighty aphrodite with Mac pink power over it. It’s my new go to combo. It’s just enough color to make me look healthy without overdoing it.

it depends: when I’m pale in the colder months I use mac’s well dressed and dust is with a pearly-white inglot eyeshadow I’ve been using and repurchasing as a highlighter for years.

when I’m slighly taned I use benefit’s moon beam and top it with mac’s springsheen blush

I LOVE Benefit Sugarbomb as a blush and
Smashbox Soft Lights in Shimmer as a highlight. I know it sounds like a bit much but my skin has never looked better. It just really works with my skintone and makes my skin look great! Can’t rave enough about this combo.

lately I’m loving my Tarte AC blush in Glisten!
also got the Milani baked blush in Luminoso – gorgeous
I LOVED the glow that NARS Madly gave me, but I think NARS blushes break me out 🙁

Combo of bronzing powder (The Body Shop in 01 or Guerlain Terracota in 02, depends if I’m tanned or not) and BB Shimmerbricks, especially Bronze or Nectar.
Some other ones I use are bronzing powder and Benefits High Beam, or simply Benefit’s 10.

Hard Candy Baby Doll glow all the way cream with hard candy honeymoon baked blush on top. It’s a lovely pinky gold tone that looks quite natural.

I’m normally a NARS Orgasm/Laguna girl, but lately I think they may be irritating my skin. So, I just took advantage of the Bobbi Brown 20% discount to order my first two Shimmerbricks! Hoping they can give me that lit-from-within glow!

I adore MAC Oh So Fair for a natural, glowy cheek. I’m also super pale, so BPs work well for me. Also a big fan of Hang Loose mineral blush duo. Today I’m wearing Prim and Proper BP with Sakura mineral blush over it.

TARTE Amazonian clay 24 hr blush in Glisten and very top and right above cheek bone TARTE Amazonian clay gel blush stick in The Perfect Pink, the very lightest pink shade they make (latter right now only available on QVC who has their graphics with names mixed up on line and never has corrected it so if ordering go by names, not color swatches). I will sometimes let my Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy or Midnight Cowboy Rides Again eye shadow drift down a tish to the top of my cheeks – but usually that’s too much glitter for anything but a night time look.

Honestly, lately I’ve been eschewing normal highlighters in favor of a subtle “dewy” cheek thing.

I wear powder foundation, which gives me a matte finish, so for a spring-appropriate sheen to my cheeks, I’ve just been dotting a stippling brush into a little moisturizer on the back of my hand, then into cream blush, and swirling the mixture onto my cheekbones. Simple, and it gives me a “natural,” dewy look that showcases my freckles.

MAC Cheeky Bronze/CARGO Topeka/NARS Luster or for more pinkish & subtle appearance Benefit High Beam over Benefit Posietint.
But recently I quite like how MAC Golden Lariat combo looks on my cheeks though.

Favorite “cool” look:Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Petal with Benefit High Beam on cheekbones.

Favorite “warm” look:Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum with Laura Geller Candlelight Glow for Face and Body on cheekbones.

I sometimes use Shell CCB by MAC with my Nars Orgasm Blush or I’ll use my Sephora Sculpting Disk (the highlighter part) also with Orgasm. It’s my favorite blush, obviously 🙂
