Guest Blogger: Stripes and Sequins’s Bright Blush Challenge

This week, we’re lucky enough to have the uber-talented Grace of Stripes and Sequins on board for a week of blogging fun. Yesterday she told us about her beauty essentials; today she’s on to a topic near and dear to our hearts: bright blush! Read on for her savvy tips.

Despite my immense love of all things beauty, I’ve never really been a blush person. In the past, I’d given a couple a try — NARS Orgasm and Benefit Dandelion — but never became a loyal user.

But then, intrigued by their ridiculously bright colors, I started to play around with a handful of blushes. I instantly fell in love with two.  

First: Benefit Bella Bamba. This one is frighteningly bright but when applied with a light touch, it looks amazing. It’s become my daily go-to. Throw out the brush it comes with and use a large fluffy blush brush instead. Apply to the apples of your cheeks and along your hairline and your glow will rival Natalie Portman’s at the Oscars. (I swear.)

The second is Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Crush. This is a cream blush, which was a bit intimidating at first. But apply just after moisturizing and it will blend into your skin effortlessly. It imparts the same glow as Bella Bamba…with the added benefit of also working amazingly well as a lip tint!
