Summer Cheeks

Summer blushes

Topshop Cream blush in Flush

physicians formula happy booster blush in Pink

Milani Luminoso baked blush

Benefit Posietint

Minimal eye makeup, bright lip and luminous cheeks – that’s pretty much my summer makeup routine in a nutshell. Who can be bothered spending hours getting ready when it’s a hundred degrees outside? Not me, for sure. To perk up my skin a bit though I always like to add a dash of mascara, pop some vibrant lipstick on and sweep across some brightening blush. Here are my top cheek picks for Summer 2014 – they are all fun, colorful and make my skin beautiful and glowing.

We have a reoccurring pink theme going on in this post and the first offering comes from Benefit in the form of their Posietint Lip & Cheek stain (here). The gorgeous light poppy pink shade is an absolute dream and I adore the way it brightens up my complexion while still looking super natural and subtle. If you are into more sheer pop of color on your cheeks, which still could be build up – this is your best bet. Posietint hangs around A.M to P.M and it is completely smudge-proof, which is exactly what we need for the summer time, am I right! The liquid-gel formula is a bit tricky to apply as you need to work it into the skin rather fast but once you get the hang of it you will be wow-ed with the beautiful results. Off into my makeup bag it goes.

Cream-to-powder blushes are my favorite for the warmer months and this Topshop beauty in the shade Flush (here) has earned a top spot on my summer makeup shelf. Just look at this perfect pink shade that is not too warm but not too cool either – it’s right in between and I absolutely love it. It adds such a lovely flush of color and I find that it really enhances the natural color of my cheeks – it’s love. The formula also left me smitten. It glides on like a breeze, doesn’t go patchy and the pigmentation is insane. Full review here.

The list of pink awesomeness goes on and the next beauty on my list is the oh-so-pretty Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Pink (here). Cute as a pie packaging, stunning cool toned pink shade, which adds beautiful life and radiance to my complexion and incredible long-lasting formula. What else could I ask for? I adore this little gem and it makes the perfect summer blush for me. It colors and highlights my cheeks like there is no tomorrow and it gets me one step closer to achieving my favorite “sun kissed’ glow. Full review here.

Okay I’m stopping with the pinks now, I also have a peachy offering and surprise, surprise it is Milani Luminoso (here). I feel like that this pan of perfection has taken over my blog recently but I can’t help it – it’s gorgeous and it’s one of my summertime best friends. It is the most beautiful peach with golden shimmer running through it and it’s one of those universal shades that suit pretty much everyone. It brightens up my skin with just one swipe of the brush and I am in love with how dewy my skin looks when I wear it – the sheen is absolutely gorgeous. Luminoso blends effortlessly and the opacity is wonderful. Big thumbs up from me. Review here.

Have you tried any of these blushes before? Which one is your favorite? Which is your go-to blush for summer 2014?

Lots of love,


  1. Seriously stunning photos, Andrea! I especially love the Physicians Mood Booster-how cute is the actual plush itself!

    I have had my eye on a few Benetints but have yet to pick them up yet. All the reviews that I read about them have been wonderful!
