The Autumn Blush Line Up

Blushers are definitely something I change depending on the season. Today I thought I would share with you my top 5 that will be gracing my cheeks in these colder months. 
Starting off with cream blushes; a cream blush is perfect for this time of year because they can add a lovely glow to the skin without making shiny. The first one is the Stila Convertible Color in Lilium (review), this is the perfect dusky pink shade which looks so natural on the skin and gives the perfect healthy glow. The formula of this is great too as it lasts all day on the skin and can even be used on the lips. The next is the Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Dixie, this one is more of a peachy pink shade which is especially good for waking up dull skin. This shade looks good all year round and the wear time is great too. 
Onto powder blushers, the first being a great cheap option in the ELF Studio Blush in Mellow Mauve, this is a lovely berry shade which has a slight shimmer to it which adds a slight glow to the skin. The formula of these blushes is top notch and for the price you can't go wrong, they have a great shade range too. Next is a more expensive option in MAC Matte Powder Blush in Desert Rose, this one is very pigmented so you don't need a lot. For me this is the perfect option for achieving that 'just been out in the snow' rosey glow to the cheeks. Finally I couldn't do this post without mentioning NARS Douceur (review), or as i've renamed it 'model cheekbones in a pan'. When i'm at my palest this is a great alternative to bronzer. I would definitely recommend this if you have fair skin; a cheaper option is the NYX blush in Taupe although that one is a little more purple toned.
L-R, Lilium, Dixie, Mellow Mauve, Desert Rose, Douceur
So those are my Autumn blush picks, I think all of these are perfect for adding some colour and glow to dull skin. What are your favourite blushers to wear in the colder months?
