It is no secret that I love the colour pink. No, scratch that, I ADORE the colour. It’s so pretty and feminine and reminds me of everything I love: lipstick, fairy floss, blossoms of peonies and roses, that first kiss, strawberry ice cream, icing on a girl’s birthday cake, ballerinas, brides, and the thrill of knowing that you’re falling in love.
Because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I’ve put together my favourite shades of blush. Blush, unlike other shades of pink, is a soft, pretty, sometimes timid hue. Blush doesn’t shout, or demand attention. It’s gentle and bashful, like the first stirrings of love. I still remember watching that scene in Steel Magnolias when Shelby was asked what her wedding colours were and she said, blush and bashful. I swooned. I really did. I know most guys would scoff and say that it’s just pink and pink, just like M’Lynn did. But you and I know that even blush has variations. 🙂
Here are my top faves.
Which is your favourite shade?
