3 Must-Have Blushes!
What’s the one thing that’ll instantly enhance any makeup look? Your winged eyeliner is sharp AF, your highlight is poppin’, but something’s missing. Whether you’re going for a super glam full face of makeup or you’re opting for a more natural look, it’s all about the blush.
A natural flush is flattering on everyone. And if it’s done right, it’ll add more dimension to your face. But don’t overdo it. Because with some bad lighting and one too many swipes, it could look a bit intense.
When it comes to picking out the perfect blush, it’s not just about finding the right shade for your skin tone. You also need to make sure that you’re choosing the right formula!
Here’s a list of the 3 best blushes that’ll most certainly have you swooning!
1. HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Blush Collection
If you’re hoping to achieve a naturally radiant glow, then you’ve got to go with the Ambient Lighting Blush ($38) from Hourglass, which is available in 6 gorgeous shades.
Your traditional blush product offers a pop of color that tends to be flat, but the blushes from this collection are fused with Ambient Lighting Powders to give you a luminous glow.
There’s a bit of shimmer, but nothing too overwhelming. Just enough to create a soft-focus lighting effect whic
h completely brightens up your complexion.
Another plus? It’s 100% cruelty-free!
2. TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
Tarte Cosmetics’ Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush ($29) is one of the best powder blushes out there. Infused with Amazonian clay, its long-lasting formula blends seamlessly into the skin and controls oil. At the end of a long day, you can still count on this blush to look freshly applied.
Full of true-color mineral pigment, its silky formula offers a very pretty, natural flush that’s buildable!
3. TOO FACED Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush
Love Flush ($23.40-$26) from Too Faced is the perfect powder blush for you if you want to cut out all the fuss. No minerals, no lighting effects, and none of that iridescent glow… just blush. When all you’re trying to do is add a pop of color or ‘love flush’ to your cheeks. Plain and simple.
The lightweight formula feels remarkably silky during application. But a little truly goes a long way because it’s incredibly rich in pigment, offering a very bold color payoff.
Bonus: It comes in a super cute heart shaped compact!
