Cheek to Cheek

1 January 2016

I've been wearing the same blush for the past three months now - stuck in a make-up rut so to speak. And so, a couple of weeks back, I nipped into Space NK for a splurge and also went a bit mad by placing my first Sephora order online.

The first thing I picked up was one of the Tarte 24hr Amazonian Clay blushes in the shade 'Exposed' - a cult favourite. It's a lovely dusky mauve and works well as a contour on my pale complexion as well as adding a flush of colour to the cheeks. It's staying power is pretty impressive as the name would suggest as well - managing to stick around throughout the 14 hour days at the office I am currently faced with.

At the same time, I also nabbed the Becca x Jaclyn Hill 'Champagne Pop' shimmering skin perfector that everyone and their dog has been harping on about. I can see why though - so long as you're not afraid of a bit of sparkle, then it's beautiful. A little goes a long way in giving you the glistening cheekbones you're after!

And finally - the 'must-have' addition on everyone's make-up menu this year - the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. I had tried their blushes before and am already a big fan, so now I am looking forward to trying the ambient lighting powders and the bronzer alongside as I have heard a lot of good things. It's a little pricey for the size IMO, but the quality of the products no doubt makes it worth it and also means it is easier to cart around if you want to use it on the go.

What are your current faves when it comes to adding a little rosy glow?
