NARS Blush offers a range of translucent, natural shades, each with a subtle pink for natural blush undertone, created to highlight the complexion. Designed to be worn alone or layered together for more depth, NARS Blush provides a healthy glow to flatter any skintone. My Favourite Nars Blush is Deep Throat as the shade can make any look better.Great pigment, easy to blend. £21.50

If your going for a smokey eye then keep your blush to a minimum to make your eyes the main feature & more dramatic, or for the blushing bride keep the eyes simple & dab on a pink blush.

    1. Hi
      I'm loving Becca at the moment!

      Yes Accessorize is sold in Superdrug or online, the blushes & bronzers are really good


  4. I love blushers with a sheen in them, but the Nars one looks a bit scary. I would be worried I would look like a doll!
