Layering Orange Blush

A few days ago my beautiful friend Rona was telling me that she had a few products that she didn't use as often as she liked and wanted to pass on. Of course this was my reaction..

She ended up giving me a vibrant orange Nyx blush that I'm not going to lie, looked a little bit intimidating. I think this blush is from the tangerine/orange phase that the beauty world went through a little while back and I was immediately excited to see if I could work with this  CRAZY popular trend.

The best description that I have for the affect of this blush is the bright orange smear on your napkin from when you eat spaghetti and wipe the corners of your mouth. It was Not a very wearable color on my skin so I decided to layer it with a equally vibrant hot pink blush. The result was a really fun and wearable coral! I probably should've seen it coming-- pink + orange = coral but WHATEVER. I'm really happy with the result and I'm glad I found a fun way to wear this blush.


  1. I'm not a blush person, but orange blush may change my mind as it's so brightening and pretty! xx
