Yesterday, I happened to arrive at my station for work a bit early, so I browsed through the cosmetics counter at the department store. I had been wanting a new blush since I changed my hair style, and I only had pinks and other shades I thought were too dark for my fair skin. When I approached the NARS counter, I asked the sales associate what shade would best accentuate my cheekbones and would look best with my black hair. She immediately pointed to this pretty beige shade¬†that I ended up buying. I tried it on this morning with my normal makeup routine, and I am extremely satisfied with how it looks on me. It’s subtle, but adds a hint of color to my cheeks. Plus, I can pair any lip color and it won’t clash. Today, I opted for L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour. I bought this shade almost 2 years ago for my senior piano recital and hadn’t used it since. Good thing I kept it because now it’s my go-to lip color for day and night.
Some of the other items in the first photo:
1. Botanics Mineral Eye Colour (I only use the nude shade)
2. NARS blush in 4026
3. Maybelline Falsies Volum’ Express mascara in black
4. KATE Super Sharp Liner in black
5. L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour in Mulberry 710
Do you have any blush recommendations? Let me know in the comments!:)
I also have exciting news that has nothing to do with makeup… My cousin just had a healthy baby boy last week! This is her second child, so I’m sure her eldest daughter is beyond excited to have a little brother. I’m pretty sure I was, too, when my brother was born (I was 3 years old then). I am extremely happy for my cousin and her family – can’t wait to meet the little one!

Samantha, I love Nars blushers. I use 2 different colors, one for Spring and 1 for Fall. All their products are splendid and are so well-priced. And, HAPPY NEPHEW !


Firstly I love you hairstyle, it looks so fresh and sophisticated! And secondly what I can truly recommend to you is Little Round Pot Blush from Bourjois. They have huge amount of colors, it's looks really great on your skin and what's the most important – stays there till you remove your make up.
