A pop of blush on the cheeks instantly transforms your complexion and adds more glow to your face. Whether it’s a bold coral, soft pink or warm peach, a bit of colour can make you look healthier and brighter with minimal effort. Here are 10 of the very best blush products in the market, from classics like Nars’s cult Orgasm to more esoteric finds like Glossier’s Cloud Paint and Stila’s Convertible Color. From powders to creams, shop the very best, as seen below:
Stila’s Convertible Color is designed for use on both lips and cheeks, providing a sheer wash of glowy colour. Gerbera is a gorgeously subtle peach.
Complete with mini brush for blending and buffing the product into the skin, Chanel’s Joues Contraste Powder Blush offers long-lasting colour in a large range of colours. Vibration is a bold pink that looks great on darker skin tones.
A creamy, blendable cheek colour that instantly melts into the skin, Glossier’s Cloud Paint is inspired by New York sunsets. The Dusk shade is universally flattering.
A soft baby pink with a hint of shimmer, Benefit’s Dandelion blush brightens skin and comes with a bristle brush for blending.
- Laura Mercier
Use Laura Mercier’s Creme Cheek Colour in Oleander for a foolproof route to a girlish flush. Apply with fingers for ultimate blendability.
Is this the most famous blush of all time? Nars’s cult Blush in Orgasm offers a flattering wash of peachy-pink colour, with a golden shimmer finish. The all-in-one Multiple and the Liquid Blush of the same name are equally covetable.
With its unique, gel-like texture, Chantecaille’s Cheek Gelée in Happy blends easily into the apples of the cheeks for a seamless wash of healthy-looking colour.
- Bobbi Brown
This blush offers impressive staying power and a huge shade range, Bobbi Brown Blush is a reliable make-up bag staple. The Pale Pink shade looks bright on first glance, but can be buffed in until you reach your desired hue.
- Charlotte Tilbury
Charlotte Tilbury’s Cheek To Chic blush compact features two shades, with the outer one designed to be swirled over the cheeks and the core shade to provide a pop of colour at the apples.
For a truly phenomenal shade range, look to MAC’s much-loved Powder Blush, which has hues for every skin tone. For a classic pink, try Pink Swoon.
