Barely Blushed--Best Natural Blushes for Spring

Hey you! Sorry for the blog silence yesterday. I had an emotional weekend and my body just kinda couldn't handle it. I am not feeling well and took the day off from here, BUT I've got vacation next week! The beach cures just about anything, am I right? So now that we're all caught up, let's get into today's post!



I love natural makeup in the spring--a change from my dark lips and intense eyes from winter. And a natural-looking blush is an easy way to do that. Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite blushes (different finishes and different price points) for spring. I call it Barely Blushed --check out the video below:
