Blush Picks for Bold Lips


I have a few Holiday looks planned for this month and they all include a bold lip. Pairing blush with a bold lip can be a little tricky. Here are a few of my favorites.

~ MAC Blush in Coppertone ~ A beautiful subtle blush that gives you just a hint of warmth on your cheeks. Perfect for girls with medium to dark skin tones.

~ The Balm Instastain in Pinstripe ~ A plum colored blush with a hint of gold sheen that highlights the cheekbones. This looks amazing with berry toned lipsticks.

~ NARS Blush in Sin ~ Slightly darker than The Balm's blush but very very similar! Love this as great option.

~ MAC Blush in Pinch Me ~ The name of this blush is perfect. A subtle pinky glow that gives a beautiful radiance to the skin.

~ Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush in Exposed ~ A surprising edition to my blush collection. I thought this would be way to light for my skin tone but it is the perfect nude blush that warms up your complexion without competing with your lip. My go to option when wearing bold lips.

Do you have a go to blush when wearing a bright/bold lip color?
