As much as I love a good pink or peachy cheek, I've recently got into a nude cheek. Is there such a thing as 'your cheeks but better'? Haha, probably not! Anyway, I find it really works well for those days where you might have a strong colour on your eyes or lips and you aren't sure what cheek colour would go with it. The nude cheek seems to go with everything and gives your face a bit of shape without drawing attention to that area. This post is dedicated to showing you my favourite products from the nude blush category.
First up, I thought I'd dive straight in with my favourite and it's the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic in First Love. It's a gorgeous, shimmery beige, nude shade with a pop of a non shimmery, more red-toned brown in the middle. I swirl this all together for a very flattering, radiant look on the cheek. It doesn't look over the top or glittery. In fact, this one is so special, I chose to wear it on my wedding day!
The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed is great when I want something a little more matte. I find it to be a great alternative to bronzer that is more flattering on my skin tone. It's a nude pink-brown sort of shade that perks up my complexion in a subtle way and I really enjoy wearing this.
My final pick is the most budget friendly and it's the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve. These are the blushes that a lot of people liken to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush due to the veining and radiant finish. I love this shade as it gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks without adding a ton of colour. As the name suggests, it's a mauve toned nude and it's so natural looking. It really suits my skin tone.
Do you like a nude blush or is it something you're thinking about trying?
