Favorite Fall Blushes

Blush has quickly become one of my favorite makeup products, even sometimes over passing my one true love, lipstick. Fall time brings a change in tones and color palettes in not only wardrobes, but also makeup. These are my current favorite fall blushes that work well with the fall color palettes of the season.


Marc Jacobs Air Blush- Flesh & Fantasy $42

By far my favorite blush formula of all time. The name really does it justice, once applied it gives a near air brushed finish that always looks natural no matter how heavy handed you might get. Flesh & Fantasy is a really beautiful nude with a cooler undertone that will go well with nearly any type of eye shadow or lipstick color. One can either mix the two parts of the blush together or focus on either side to make a customized shade each time. The mirror on this compact is incredible as well, clear and large enough where you can actually see yourself in it.

Clinique Cheek Pop- Cola Pop $23

Cola Pop is an interesting shade that can go wrong very fast, but if done right it is the color “fall” in a lil cute compact. The name describes the shade really well, it is a burgundy cola shade. This is a VERY pigmented blush so only tap it lightly once and you’ll be set for both cheeks. When applied with a light hand it gives your face the look of being outside on a snowy day. I’ve made the mistake of picking up too much product and I looked straight up like a very rosy cheeked Santa Clause. So remember, keep a light hand or else this won’t be your fall blush shade, but a new addition to your Santa cosplay outfit.

Ilia Multi-Stick- At Last $34

At Last is described as a dusty rose and I think that’s a perfect description. This shade gives the cheeks a windswept color that looks very healthy. It’s a cream formula so it also adds a nice glowy sheen that makes it look more natural than a powder. This product is also great because it works as a lip product too, monochromatic looks have never been easier. Definitely check out the multi-sticks if you’re more chilled out with your makeup because they are truly so easy and quick to pop on.

Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Blush- Plum Rose $13

I use Plum Rose whenever I have a purpley eye shadow look because it has a purple undertone, while simultaneously being somewhat nude? It’s such an interesting color because the color almost changes depending on the other shades you’re wearing. So when I do use it to accompany purple eye shadow or lipstick it looks like a toned down mauve, but when worn with more neutral tones it also looks neutral, difficult to describe, but hopefully that makes sense. This is another blush that has a near air brushed finish. This is the least expensive out of the bunch and can be purchased at Ulta so use a coupon and try it out!

ColourPop Pressed Powder Face Duo- Double Play (Getting Handsy) $16

Another crazy pigmented blush, but soooo worth the added effort. I have a special technique when using this blush: tap the brush lightly into the blush, tap off excess, and then I pat it a few times on my hand before even going near my face. Like I said, it’s insanely pigmented and can go overboard very fast, but the color is perfect for those warm gold eye shadow looks. It’s a burnt orange shade that really plays well with the whole fall theme. The highlighter that comes in the duo is also gorg, but like the blush, you have to be light handed.

If you’re interested in any of these blushes most can be found on Sephora’s website and they just so happen to be having a sale for another 2 days off of EVERYTHING in store! If you’re wondering what else to pick up, check out my last post with my own personal wishlist for the sale!
