Feeling Flushed


Okay, I know. I’m back to one of my all-time favourite brands… but they’re my favourite for a reason!

This week I’m focussing on‘Naked Flushed – Naked’, a cheek palette I received as an extra little gift for Christmas. I’d been holding off on using it as I’ve not really used a cheek palette before. (I know, I’m a bit behind the times!) I’m not really sure why, either, as I love an eyeshadow palette!


This particular palette includes a super silky bronzer, highlighter, and blush in a gorgeous medium pink shade. All three colours complement each other beautifully. I’ve been using this palette for a few weeks now, and I’ve found it best to use each colour separately. Of course, this makes the application more precise, but I’m not sure I like the idea of making a mess by blending in the palette.


So, let’s look at the colours individually.

Starting with the bronzer, the formula is both silky and buildable. I use myReal Techniques contour brush to achieve a soft, bronzed contour. It’s also great for lightly contouring your nose and jaw line.

Next in line is the gorgeous highlighter: rose-tinted to create an enviable glow.

Last, but by no means least, is my favourite part of the trio – the beautiful blush. Used with theReal Techniques blush brush , this creates a perfectly flushed look. With this amazing duo, I usually end up looking a bit over-blushed!


Let’s be honest – I was always going to love this palette, wasn’t I? I mean, it’s by Urban Decay! Is there a cheek palette out there you think I’ll love too?
