MEGA 2018 Holiday Gift Guide To Blush

What makes you blush? In my case, it used to be the color pink. When people would try to get me to wear the color in the past, I would often avoid it for fear of appearing too girly, crawling back to my comfort zone of neutral palettes.

Being exposed to the beauty industry has taught me many things, and one of the lessons I’ve learned is that life is too short not to take any risks. So when recent beauty trends showcased the color through electric graphic liner and pastel lids, I decided to give blush tones a go. A shade that is flattering on practically all skin tones, blush is a nice way to warm up the “-ber” months. Clearly, this is a trend that isn’t going anywhere soon.
