My 5 Most Used Blushes This Summer

Best Bright Blushes for The Summers - Photos - Swatches - Dolce Gabbana Sole - MAC Hidden Treasure - Chanel Frivole - Brume Dor - NARS Liberte

There is something about summers and bright colors.  Like today, all I wanted to do was pop on a bright lipstick and dab on some peachy/coral blush even when the most exciting thing on my to-do list for the day was cleaning up my my room and organizing makeup.  Good thing I stuck to the cleaning.  The last time I was "supposed" to be cleaning, I ended up scattering all my blushes on the floor and staring at them - and left them that way for ages after that!  I did get these photos, though, promptly filed away in drafts.  Anywho, now that I remembered, these are my 5 much-used blushes this summer.

(for some reason Hidden Treasure is showing up pinkish/berry on my swatch but is actually a burnt red)

There's a peach/apricot/red tone to all of these blushes, and it's something I tend reach for quite unintentionally every summer.  The pinks and the berries go into storage until the winters, and the warmer colors come out to play.  Do you switch blushes too as the weather warms up?  What's been your go-to blush of late?

  6. D&G's Sole looks amazing! Which reminds me that I should wear Hidden Treasure more often. I, too, own it but don't give it the proper love it deserves.

  8. Lovely post!! I seem to have been drawn to a lot of cool pinks this summer. My top 5: Edward Bess Island Rose and Love Affair, Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Rose, Laura Mercier cream blush in Blaze, and a tie between Nars Lovejoy and Amour.
