10 no-brush blushes.

10 no-brush + no-fuss blush options!

If I could describe my make-up routine in one word, it would be simple. I wear make-up on an almost daily basis, but I like to keep my application to under three minutes. {I value my beauty sleep!} It may sound crazy, but I have it down to a bit of science. When I found blush sticks, I discovered a "grown-up" version of the gel blush from Bonne Bell that I used to wear in 1999. While I do use a brush for my bronzer, I don't want to tote around a separate one for my blush. I love the fact I can concentrate my blush in one particular area with a blush stick.

I have both the NARS and Tarte sticks, which are easy to pack for work trips, vacations, and spontaneous weekends away. I like the NARS stick for everyday use. The Tarte stain is often my date night and special occasion pick for its bold color.  I love the dewy look that both give, but most of all, I love their simplicity. Do you use a blush stick or are you a fan of more "traditional" blush? xoxo {av}

  1. I too like to keep my beauty routine to under 3 minutes. For a no brush option, or I should say, a no ADDITIONAL brush option, I love Benetint. It gives me a really natural rosy glow, and keeps my makeup feelin fresh and light, not heavy.

  3. Traditional powder blush & I are totally in a fight! All of a sudden blush is either way too bright on me, or non-existent! I have been dying to try a cream or stick blush but I'm scared! Haha. I think I need to go into a Sephora and test out the Josie Maran gelee, Nars Multiple, and Tarte stick!
