Colour crush...Tawny Blusher.

A Full spectrum of *tawny shades*.
I was born in the 70's and *tawny* is a blusher shade that fills me with nostalgia, it is traditionally a soft peachy brown, that just gives a healthy outdoorsy look which was a  look that was commonplace among models in the 70's early 80's that Californian honey blonde or the just gorgeous girl next door which was a very *fresh* and glowing look.
I was obsessed with make up from such an early age and I have *polaroids* in my mind of faces/looks, colours used in creating the look. One of the models that I adored around this time was *Willow Bay* and she *rocked* that Tawny blush.
The Many faces of Willow Bay.

Willow was the face of Estee Lauder and could morph from fresh faced and girlish to power dressing sophisticate always with a flawlessly glossy bob!
So my current love of a tawny blush is quite understandable, it is very flattering there is a *tawny for every skin tone, looks great very sheer or a little more *built* up, can be part of an ultra natural look or paired with a stronger lip & eye, just so versatile.

A look I created with a subtle smokey eye and juicy lip with a tawny cheek colour.
My favourite variations of *tawny* & a highlighter.

2 pots: Bobbi Brown cream cheek colour in: Uber beige and Fresh melon- very soft and *buildable *

Pixi- sheer cheek gel in Peachy: a beautiful sheer tawny peach.

Daniel Sandler Water colour: Spicey a fabulous tawny for deeper skin tones.

2 x Pixi sticks: Cheek sheen sticks in bronze and gold the bronze is a beautiful lustrous tawny and the gold is such a complimentary highlighting shade. (Both Spring shades) available 1st March.

A tawny cheek on me, with barely there make up but glossy lip.

*Note* Pixi Cheek Sheens were press samples a they are *new* for Spring and I LOVE them, the rest I purchased and have been using in my kit.
