Powder blush pigments to enhance your natural glow while providing cheeks with a subtle, flattering flush.
FAVE BLUSHES: MAC POWDER BLUSH
MAC - MAC Powder Blush in Gingerly This is one of the first blushes I ever fell in love with. I wore this so much throughout high school and always got compliments on my blush! This shade, Gingerly, is the perfect warm tan color that adds a sunkissed look to my skin. The formula is super buttery and smooth and applies sheer, but it’s buildable to become super pigmented too! I love how this blush stays on all day and doesn’t fade on me either- because most powder blushes fade on my skin at some point during the day.

NARS Orgasm Battle: Cream vs Powder Blush ☺️💕
A serious debate amongst my girlfriends and I: which consistency do we prefer in our beauty products, liquid or solid? Some of them can’t comprehend using cream or liquid foundations, whilst others steer clear of pressed powders with a vengeance: it seems that everyone has a strong preference either way! Personally, I’ve always fallen into the liquid category for foundations – I have no idea how to blend powder foundation without it going patchy! – and the powder or solid camp for my blush, bronze and highlight. I’ve really struggled with liquid products: an early memory of trying highlighter was the NARS Illuminator in shade Copacabana – a cult beauty product with a stunning colour – that turned my face patchy and rubbed away my foundation, so I vowed to steer clear of liquid products for the foreseeable future. However, I’ve recently picked up a cream product that I thought may change my mind: NARS ‘The Multiple’ in shade Orgasm, a creamy, buildable stick blusher in their iconic rosy shade. I am a devoted NARS Orgasm Blush lover, and it’s definitely my go-to blusher: so how did the cream equivalent compare? The Multiple has a lovely sheen to it and doesn’t strip my foundation away, as with previous liquid products I’ve tried. It’s definitely buildable, and blends well with a soft stippling brush, giving me a pretty, rosy glow. However, whilst I do like the payoff and formula of this cream blush, I do find myself still reaching for the pressed powder equivalent. I think the powder is easier to control and gives a faster result, whilst lasting longer on the skin – I find the cream wears away by the end of the day. Overall, whilst The Multiple is a strong contender, the original and iconic NARS Orgasm Powder Blush is the winner every time!NARS - NARS Blush
My go to powder blush
Before I found cushion blush, the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush was my go to powder brush. It blends well and stays on for long periods of time without transferring much. I like this best for warmer weather and when I’m going to be outdoors since it’s better for oil control. I got this as part of the Sephora birthday gift a few years back and it is in the shade “paaarty.” Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

Favorite blush #2
This is definitely one of my favorite powder blushes! I find that this blends into skin seamlessly and leaves a nice subtle nude pink glow. I find this shade is pretty buildable but I think it’ll only show up on fair to medium skin. Luckily, she just releases a deeper version of pillowtalk for medium/tan and deeper complexions. I think the formula of these blushes is very luxe and great quality. I love the sheen it gives my cheeks without being shimmery or glittery. I find that it’s forgiving on the skin and texture. I’d recommend this if you like luminous blushes and powder blushes. I definitely think this is worth the money and I plan on purchasing the deeper version!

WHITE SUGAR SKULL MAKEUP 💀🤍
The inspiration behind this look was obviously a skeleton but I wanted to create a brighter look opposed to the dark/scary skeleton normally portrayed. Products used: -MAC - MAC Powder Blush this contour shade appears cool toned but applies warm. It can be a little chalky so make sure to have a smooth powdered surface when using - MAYBELLINE - Cover Stick Concealer I like this concealer because of its creamy texture. It’s is super easy to work with and blends well. I used a small lip liner brush to apply this. These sticks are perfect for Halloween makeup and color correction. - NYX - White Liquid Liner This eyeliner is super bright and is not drying - NYX - Slim Lip Pencil This lip liner is very pigmented so I applied light handed to get a softer shade. It is a little harder to blend out so be careful where you apply the liner to How to: I first applied my face makeup as usual and used the contour shade to warm up my cheeks, and temples. Then I used the white concealer and marked out the spider web on my forehead, circled around my eyes, and mouth markings. I also used the concealer as a lipstick and to create a skull nose. Next, I used the brown eyeliner to create dimension on the mouth/nose markings and the white eyeliner to create highlights on some of the white areas. I used pearls I found at Michaels and glued them on with white eyelash glue. For the eye makeup, I used the contour shade in the crease and the white concealer on the lids and set with powder. Lastly, I applied false lashes. I created this look awhile back and remember it being really quick to recreate. Also, my skill level is not that high so it is defiantly achievable for beginners with the right products. #CheriePartner

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
