Hello and welcome to VELVET BLUSH. I am a 21 year old student from the West Midlands. I have long been obsessed with beauty products, so one Summer I decided to set up a blog as my outlet to review products and interact with other bloggers. I enjoy reviewing everything from beauty, skincare, fashion, lifestyle products and books.

I’ve also been an avid book reader for as long as I can remember. I started off with the Roald Dahl’s and Anthony Horowitz, this turned into Harry Potter (I am a huge fan), and then later the classics and other books set in historical settings. So you may find the odd book review here too!

Whilst I love reviewing all sorts of beauty products, on my blog you’ll find plenty of budget beauty reviews and suggestions, perfect for the student budget!

For foundation/concealer shade comparisons (I always find these so useful myself), I have a medium skintone with undertones bordering on neutral. My skin is on the dry side, but other than that and my dark circles, I don’t have any other issues. My best matches are:

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 54 (I love this stuff!)
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer Shade 3
Nars Creamy Concealer Custard
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation Punjab
Estee Lauder Double Wear Dawn 2W1
Vichy Dermablend foundations between shades 25 and 35

I’m probably around an NC 25-30.

If you have questions, please get in touch.
