Top Five Blushes for Fair Skin (High-End)

My top five blushes for fair skin (high-end)

My top five blushes for fair skin (high-end)

Sorry I haven’t posted much this week. Its the end of semester so work has been very busy. I thought I would share my blush recommendations for fair skin. This post is my top five high-end blushes. I will do my drugstore blush picks soon though!

These are in no particular order:

NARS Deep Throat

NARS “Deep Throat”

I have several NARS blushes and they have such an enormous shade range its easy to find one that works for you. My favourite NARS blush is Deep Throat, a peachy-pink that is similar to NARS Orgasm, but a lot less shimmery. ($33.00 CAD)

Chanel Joues Contraste 55 In Love

Chanel Joues Contraste 55 “In Love”

I mentioned this in a recent post, and I am totally in love with Chanel In Love. I think anyone with fair skin will like this natural, peachy-coral blush with a subtle shimmer that gives you the perfect glow. ($48.00 CAD)

theBalm FratBoy

theBalm “FratBoy”

The deepest of the five shades, theBalm’s FratBoy is a completely matte, corally-pink. I consider theBalm a “high-end” line because its difficult to find in Canada (most drug stores don’t carry it) and the price point is higher than what I consider “drugstore” ($24.00 CAD).

LORAC Exposed

LORAC Baked Matte Satin blush in “Exposed”

Lorac Baked Matte Satin blush in Exposed is a favourite of LisaLisaD1‘s and bought this one from her online shop actually. Despite its name, this blush is NOT matte; it has a beautiful (not too shimmery) sheen. I often use it as a highlight for the tops of my cheeks over another blush. Its fabulous on its own too. This peachy-pink blush is one of my all time favourites. If you’re searching for LORAC in Canada, try the Nordstrom’s site which has reasonable shipping and no additional customs charges. ($27.70 CAD)

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in "Dollface"

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in “Dollface”

I have three of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes. My Dollface is the “baby” sized version, but its available in the full-size. Dollface is a light, cool-toned, matte pink. It gives a very natural flush to the cheeks and is super long-wearing. ($31.00)

Here they are swatched in natural daylight:
