Let's have coffee talk with Pebbles! Nothing like chatting it up about beauty, fashion, style, health, well being, goals, pets and anything that peeks my interest! Life is too short so let's strive to live it to the fullest and be the best we can be!
Purchasing cosmetics can be a daunting task and very overwhelming at times. There are so many brands, and then each brand has so many different types of product to choose from! It's not as easy as some may think!
Questions to consider:
1. Colour - will it suit my skintone
2. Cost - will this purchase fit my budget
3. Brand - are they cruelty free, paraban free, etc.
4. Do I want shimmer or flat colour
5. Do I want a baked or non-baked?
Here are some of my blushes that I have in my collection. I tend to go for similar shades. I don't have a wide range of difference between brands, but these shades really suit my skintone. I have OLIVE SKIN and I tend to be light-medium in the winter and medium-dark in the summer. These shades tend to work with me throughout the different seasons.
I hope that sharing some of my blushes will help you find that perfect shade that is just right for you!
