Welcome to What I Reach For Most!
This is a new regular series. I’m going to share the brands, or colors, or types of cosmetic products that I reach for most when I’m doing my day-to-day makeup!
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
I’m kicking it off with BLUSH!
While using my MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush in Stunner, a limited edition from a collection I don’t even recall, I realized something.
Despite the variety of blushes I have in my stash, I continuously reach for one brand: MAC. That’s what got me thinking about doing What I Reach For Most.
Not all of those pretties pictured above are blushes. Some are MIneralize Skin Finish, some are Face Powder. But I use them all on my face primarily as blush. Most of them are limited edition that I’ve picked up over the years.
Of the ones pictured above, here’s the six MAC Cosmetics blushes I love the most:
From top right, starting with the broken one and going clockwise, they are: Lust Mineralize Skin FInish, Briar Rose Beauty Powder, Stunner Powder Blush, Bite of an Apple Matte Powder Blush, Flatter Me Pearl Matte Face Powder and Stereo Rose Mineralize Skin FInish.
Check out swatches, first in natural light and second with flash:
From left to right: Lust, Briar Rose, Stereo Rose, Flatter Me, Bite of an Apple and Stunner.
Lust and Stereo Rose look like they made for me when I wear them. Flatter Me and Stunner are my go-to, everyday, work appropriate blushes. Bite of an Apple and Briar Rose are my fun, bright blushes that I need to apply with a light hand but enjoy the pop of color.
So what about you? Do you find yourself reaching for a blush or brand of blush continuously?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
