The perfect cheek combo.

It's kind of gloomy today so the lighting is not ideal, but hopefully you'll still be able to see how gorgeous my new favorite cheek combination is!





The cheek combo I'm wearing and loving here is Dior Nude Glow Healthy Glow Summer Powder in Aurora and Milani Baked Blush in Corallina. I applied Dior Aurora all over my cheek bones as you would a blush/bronzer, and I finished it all off with Milani Corallina just on the apples of my cheeks for a touch of color. I found Corallina to be unexpectedly pigmented, and the first day I wore it, I applied it in a rush with a normal blush brush (whatever the Sigma version of the MAC 168 is called) and I sported some serious clown cheeks. I then learned my lesson and used a duo fibre brush (Sigma F15) to apply it everyday thereafter :)

Face:
Origins VitaZing
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC30
Dior Sculpt Lifting Smoothing concealer in 002 Beige
MAC MSFN in Medium Plus
Benefit bronzer in Hoola (contour)
Dior bronzer in Aurora
Milani blush in Corallina

Eyes:
UDPP
MAC e/s in Phloof!
UD e/s in Naked
UD e/s in Buck
Milani Liquif'eye eye pencil in Brown
L'Oreal Voluminous mascara

Lips:
Lancome Juicy Tube in Simmer

I actually received both Milani Corallina and MAC Phloof! (among other amazing things) after winning the lovely Danielle's giveaway from Bloomin' Beauty. I knew I'd enjoy Corallina from the get go since I've become somewhat of a blush fiend in recent months, but I unexpectedly fell in love with Phloof! as well. I was expecting it to be another nice but generic highlight shade, but I was pleasantly surprised to find how smooth and flattering the pale, silvery pink shadow was, despite it being a frost. Love it!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

  8. I'm really loving pairing Aurora with pink and coral blush shades, too! My recent faves have been Illamasqua Tremble and MAC Melba. You look great, as usual - can I say again how cute those bangs are??
