Happy TUESDAY! I know we usually save beauty related posts for Monday and Thursday, but what the heck. I am a beauty blogger, after all! Today’s post is really fun because it’s a trend I’ve been absolutely OBSESSING over lately – blush. Fun fact: I didn’t used to love blush. I actually barely even wore it for YEARS. This summer though I’ve been loving the sun kissed (almost sun burned) blushy look. The perfect color to swap on your face during the warm summer months is hands down CORAL. I’m sharing and swatching my seven favorites so keep reading to find out which ones they are.

I love love love love love this blush. Honestly, if you’ve watched any of my youtube tutorials in the last 3 months, you’ll probably already know this but I wear this almost every day. It’s SUCH an affordable and amazing blush and I honestly can’t get enough of it. It’s pigmented, with that touch of coral. It also smells incredible, just like the butter bronzer.
This comes in second to my fav blush this season. It’s SO CHEAP but SO GOOD. I love how peachy this looks on the skin. It’s also a blush/highlighter in one, so I feel bright and glowy. I have been loving the dewy skin look, obviously, and this just layers on top of my hydrating foundation to look so sheer and pretty and summery.
I am just newly venturing into the world of cream blushes and highlighters – so this is my only one. It is SO peachy, so I’m basically in love with it. I love that I don’t have to wear any powders to wear this, so the dew factor is on full over load. This is also a mix between and highlighter and a blush so it shimmers in the sun. 10/10 would recommend to all of my friends forever.
It probably isn’t a secret that I love Pixi products. They have such high quality cosmetics and I am always pleasantly surprised for some reason. This blush got tucked away in a drawer for like 6 months when I first got it because I wasn’t into shimmery blushes (I went through a SUPER MATTE phase). I recently pulled it back out because of the whole dewy situation I mentioned before. It has the most stunning gold reflection.
This blush is an oldie but a goodie. I don’t have a ton of products from this brand but their packaging is ON POINT. I love the wood exterior and I’m a sucker for packaging. This blush is also super pigmented. It goes on pretty matte, so if you aren’t into the whole shimmer situation, this one will be PERFECT for you.
I ignored this shade of the Light Waves palette for months because it was passed off as a highlighter vs a blush but because I’m SO pale it actually works PERFECTLY on my skin tone as a blush. This has pink flecks in amongst the coral blush. It’s really gorgeous with a cool tone eye and it really brings out my freckles.
This is a brand new addition to my collection. It’s marketed as a blush-bronzer all in one. I love this because I don’t have to wear blush and bronzer. It’s the PERFECT addition to your summer makeup routine. I put this into my travel bag for easy access. It lets my freckles shine through and still adds that coral touch that I love so much.
