As our days get nicer, my makeup routine tends to change – one major thing being the addition of bolder blush. There’s something about spring & summer days that makes me want to add some more colour wherever possible.


Mary Kay’s new Mineral Cheek Duos landed on my vanity just in time for the transition and I was thrilled to give them a whirl. They come in three shades: Spiced Poppy, Ripe Watermelon and Juicy Guava. Each blush is matte, and is paired with a pearlized highlighting shade perfect for sweeping just above the cheekbone (or anywhere else you want to add a little highlight).

Out of all three, I’d have to say my favourite is Juicy Guava – it’s a light coral shade with a golden highlighter and I love how it look against my blue eyes. Check out the swatches below.
