This post started out as a makeup must-have list that I had been wanting to write for AGES, yet narrowing down my favorite products seemed like a daunting task and felt like mission impossible! I didn’t want my must-have list to read like a novel, but after thinking long and hard I finally came to the realization that there may be no way around this issue… then a light went off! Rather than bombard you with a mile long list of my beauty essentials, I decided to break it up, and break it down to you every Monday. I am sooo excited about Must-Have-Mondays! I am constantly trying new products and though there are a few favorites in rotation, I am always finding new treasures that tickle my fancy. Must-Have-Mondays will be the perfect way for me to share my favorite new finds with all of you! I would also love to hear about your favorite products… so feel free to comment!
To kick off Must-Have-Mondays I would like to share with you one of my all time favorite products… Bobbi Brown’s blush in Pale Pink. This color is absolutely GORGEOUS and somehow seems to compliment every skin tone and color combination imaginable. Everyone in my family (well… the ladies at least) can throw on this blush and look stunning. I don’t know how Bobbi does it and I probably never will… all that matters is that she has created the world’s most perfect blush and I want to see it in everyone’s makeup bags [and on everyone’s cheeks!]
Blush can be so under appreciated, but it is so necessary! All you need is a tiny pop of color right on the apples of your cheeks to wake up your entire face and make you look alive. Be sure to use a blush brush that is only used for your blush! [do not use the same brush for your blush, bronzer, powder, etc… your color won’t stay true and you may end up looking “muddy”] On a side note: brush and bronzer are like MK&A… though fabulous on their own, when they join forces they create quite the dynamic duo! So use your bronzer to sculpt, your blush to make it pop, throw on a smile and you’ll be turning heads all over town!
Fun fact: Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge herself wore Bobbi Brown’s Pale Pink blush on her wedding day!
