The best blushers for every budget
For those of us hankering after a gorgeous glow, blusher has always been a make-up bag staple. However, nowadays there’s a blush to suit everyone, from light-as-air stick formulas, to skin hydrating creams and blendable gels.
Finding the right blusher comes down to skin type. If you have normal to dry skin, a cream blush will work perfectly, as it adds an extra layer of moisture. For normal to oily skin, opt for a powder blush that won’t fade as your skin produces oil. For oily skin a gel will stay put best.
For the most natural look, apply blusher at the top of the apple of your cheeks, where rosiness would first appear naturally. For powder blush, use a traditional blusher brush for an even application. Cream formulas work best with a dense brush to achieve that coveted dewy glow, while gels can simply be dabbed on to your cheeks with your fingers.
All of these blushers are user-friendly, allowing even make-up novices to create a healthy, flushedfrom-within glow – the only choice you have to make is how much you want to spend!
