Before you think I am some chameleon and change colors let me clear the air. These 3 colors are the colors of my 3 favourite MAC Blushes. The colors that I wear almost everyday.

My evolution as a makeup lover happened slowly starting from a casual lipstick past my 10th grade. From childlike soft nude lips to bold pinks/ red statement lips.  From simple innocent kohl to cat eyes with dark eyeliners. From simple dabbing of eyeshadow on the eyelids to smokey eyes. But blush was always on the back bench. Maybe because I thought I couldn’t pose it well and would end up looking as if I have been slapped across my face or like a Japanese doll with apple cheeks. But after being introduced to these 3 gorgeous shades. . I can safely say my cheeks live in them 🙂

A right blush color for your skin tone can give you the right amount of healthy flush on the face and saves you from the washed out and pale look.
