Milani Rose Blushes

I absolutely adore the formula and the look of these blushes by Milani. They’re creamy, long-lasting, buildable, and the color payoff is fantastic.

Best Blush Palettes

As a working makeup artist, I also prefer palettes for blushes, as they usually have 3-8 different tones, guaranteed to suit any look that I create on a client.

These are some of my personal favourites, varying in formula and pigmentation. However, do keep in mind that almost each of these palettes comes in more than one shade variety! That means I’m only showing you one of them here, but there are other shade families to be purchased if you like the formula.

NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette (one shade family only)
Maybelline FaceStudio Master Blush Colour & Highlight Kit
Morphe Blushing Babes Blush Trio (comes in 7 shade families)
Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio (comes in 2 shade families)
E.L.F. Blush Palette (comes in 2 shade families)
Rimmel Kate Blush Palette
Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio (comes in 5 shade families)

My Weekend Is All Booked!

What a pun, I know… But, MAC brought it on themselves when they introduced the Art Library eyeshadow palette collection last year.

The collection consists of three palettes:

I find these shadows to be the standard and beloved MAC quality: they are not too pigmented, making it easy to build up the colour and have minimal fallout. I also think they work best with MAC’s eyeshadow primers, whichever you choose depends on your personal skin type. Across the three palettes I know I can create almost any look possible! They’ve done a great job at incorporating proper mattes and shimmers.

This is a video by a channel I really enjoy watching and trust the reviews of. Mel Thompson did a wonderful job with this review!
