Blushing Beauty

Iman, Rihanna and June Ambrose (celebrity fashion stylist).

Even though we’re used to seeing blacks, greys, and creams on the red carpet during the colder months, it seems like a few fashionistas have stepped out of that boring box and have opted for blush tones to add a bit of softness and femininity to the fall/winter color palette. This fleshy shade is flattering on most skin tones and creates a subtle sexiness.

Blushing Beauty

In my quest to find the perfect blush/bronzer, I made yet another trek to the beauty Mecca – Sephora! As you can probably tell by now, I have quite an obsession with buying products that will help give my skin that shimmery, golden/rose glow. After hearing so much hype about NARS’ blush/bronzer in Orgasm for years, I decided that I had to try its sister color – Lovejoy. Because we BGs don’t need that much color or shimmer to make our already beautiful skin radiate, this color perks up the cheeks and cheekbone perfectly. However, if you take my advice and try this blush/bronzer be sure to tap off the excess powder, otherwise, you could end up with cheeks as red as Raggedy Ann!

Available at Sephora: for $25

Here are a few examples of blush/bronzer done right by some of our favorite BG celebrities.

Halle Berry

Kerry Washington

Thandie Newton

Lauren London

    I’ve always stayed away from blush & bronzers. I just feel like it’s a bit much for everyday girls just going to work. However, anything called Orgasm or Lovejoy is worth a try! 🙂

  2. I understand, ANON, I used to feel the same way. The key is to not over do it so that it looks too made up. Remember, a little goes a long way.

    I really do like the look. Perhaps I should stop by one of those make up counters and let them do me up.

  4. I have never been able to get to grips with blusher. It scares me, I just know that when I put it on I will end up looking like a clown.

  5. um i saw a girl with lovejoy on and i was drooling! i’m all over it, just not the pricetag =((( any dupes? hmm my new quest lol

    BG to BG…is it necessary to change your lipstick with the seasons? I am beginning to feel a little strange with the same lipstick on year round. I think I should go a bit darker during the colder months. Is this true…anyone?

  7. Anon, for those BGs who like to switch it up like yourself, please do go for a darker hue in the colder months. Try MAC’s lipstick in Deep Love; it will give you a deep plum-ish brown pucker! Good luck!
