MAC powder blush - peachykeen

I very rarely buy blushers, whenever I go make up shopping it is usually a lipstick or an eye product that I leave with. I kind of get stuck in old habits when it comes to blushes and when I find a shade I like, I usually just end up sticking with it. As spring usually means new make up for me (any excuse!) I decided to get a lighter more shimmery blush to take me through to summer.

I don't know why, but I find buying blushers really hard. Swatches look completely different and I just have trouble knowing how it is supposed to look. Let's face it, I am already one step closer to looking like The Joker with green hair, I probably shouldn't take it any further in terms of make up! In the end, I usually pick a shade that I just like the look of. I know, worst blush buyer ever!

Available from MAC and Debenhams.

I ended up choosing Peachykeen after staring blankly at the blush section for ages with my mum losing the will to live behind me. The blush itself is a lovely pastel peach shade with a slight pale gold shimmer running throughout. You only need the tiniest amount before it looks a bit OTT but is perfect for that everyday glow that I was looking for. 

If anybody has any tips on choosing the right shade, please let me know! ♥

  1. Oooh that looks so pretty and glowy on you. I always struggle with blushes too, but I now go for matte pale pink or coral blushes and then I can add highlighter over the top as some shimmery blushes are just too full on for my liking xx

    1. Thank you lovely, that's such a good idea. I never thought of adding shimmer separately! :)

  2. This looks so pretty - exactly my type of blusher because it's a subtle glow. I'm like you when it comes to picking blusher, it's a bit of a guessing game, have no clue what shade is best haha.

    1. Thank you! I think you just have to hope for the best a little bit! :)
