Blushing Bride?

As someone who tends to change my mind a lot and generally be a little 'last minute', this week I'm organising exactly what colours I want to wear for my wedding day (hence you may well see quite a few wedding-related beauty posts on here over the coming days!)
When it comes to blush, I tend to get somewhat stuck-in-a-rut, so while wanting to wear something different to my everyday go-to blushes on my wedding day, I still wanted to use something I know I love...

I tend to rotate between my favourite NARS blushes 'Sin' and 'Orgasm', with the occasional Dior Healthy Glow thrown in for good measure. The newest addition to my little line-up is Illamasqua's 'Ambition'. I have it in a duo with the shade 'Katie' (rather on the pale side for me at the moment, but definitely something I will use in the winter) 
Top: Katie, Bottom: Ambition
Ambition is a really gorgeous natural-toned rosy pink, with a touch of golden shimmer to it. As it's Illamasqua, the pigmentation is out of this world. One tap with your brush is all it takes (very easy to over do it - be warned!) 

The great thing about this is that even though the sizes in the duo palette are smaller than buying an individual, these will last you forever anyway! The staying power is great (a good thing to take into account when choosing wedding makeup!) and I find the colour to be really pretty and flattering.
What do you think guys? Would this be fit for a blushing bride?! Hehe... Sorry I couldn't help it!

You can pick up Illamasqua's blush duos on counter or online here for £26 - Steep but worth it for some of the best quality blushes around in my opinion!
