Not The Biggest Blush Fan, But I Do Love Orgasm-ed Cheeks

Sorry guys.

I just really couldn’t help myself with the title. It was too easy.

Let me break it down so you get it: since the holidays are sparkly & shimmery, I figured we needed to talk BLUSH. Orgasm blush, specifically.

But wait, blush is tricky.

I feel like it’s very easy to look KRUSTY THE CLOWN-ISH if you overdo it.

That’s why I love a good orgasm.

Take your mind out of the gutter—- I’m just talking about the best blush ever: NARS cream blush in ‘Orgasm.’


It will make your cheeks look like you just had a big…O.

Perfectly rosy, with a hint of shimmer & not incredibly overwhelming.

Especially in to this blush during the holidays. I really can’t get ready without it. If you’ve used ‘Orgasm’ blush you already know this though. If you haven’t your makeup bag is totally missing something.

By the way, there’s a very specific way to apply blush.

Like very, VERY specific. Because can we talk about the time I went to get my makeup done & the lady contoured me…WITH BLUSH? That was just NO? Eer right?

You never want to contour with blush. You always want to put it on according to your face shape ( I like it on the apples of my cheeks ).

Ok so, how to apply blush like a pro:

♡ Suck your cheeks in, like you’re sipping from a BPA-free straw.
♡ Keep it on the apples of your cheeks.
♡ Don’t over shimmer the blush.
♡ Too red= just NO. A hint of light pink is perfect.
♡ Apply it properly according to your face shape.

This article says:

To slim a round face: Sweep it along your cheekbones ( suck in your cheeks to locate them ) & extend the color out to your temples.

To balance a heart-shaped face: Apply blush below the apples ( the meatiest parts ) of your cheeks and blend out to your hairline.

To soften a long face: Blend blush beneath your apples, but not out to your temples.

Trust me, try Orgasm & prepare to fall in love…HA.

Keep it simple, slightly pink, with a tiny bit of sparkle— happy holidays, lauryn x

  2. NARS is the best! I use Orgasm powder blush will have to defos give the cream blush a try! I also love MAC blush in Breezy. I usually contour a little with the NARS bronzer or Chocolate Soleil from Too Faced and then add a little blush to the apples.
