Properly about-face, blusher is one of those products that can turn you from wan to wow in a couple of brush strokes. It’s one of the reasons we love it so much and why, if you come to its use late as a beauty buff, you become pretty evangelical about it.
So I knew when I asked on Twitter (folley us @frillseeker) about your faves, that we’d get some great responses.
We have: in this gallery you’ll spot old reliables, cult classics and newbies you’ll be dying to try. Credit cards at the ready, Frillseekers.
Use 'em to contour, to add a slight bit of warmth, to perfectly complement tone-on-tone makeup or as the safe option if you're not crazy about colour, one thing is true: every beauty bag needs at least one tawny blush inside.
1 Mac Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul is a fave for @vivaadonis.
2 @saloulen's a fan of Nars Douceur.
4 A contour classic, Mac Buff's a fave for @saloulen.
5 This gal's a blush fanatic, wha? Chanel Accent's another @saloulen pick.
Peach is peachy for a milk-bottle complexion because it's so flattering. It's no wonder you guys had so many recommendations, then, huh?
1 Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop's the one for @Lorrrrrrrrraine.
2 NYC Blushable stick is the budget fave that @roxyobrien loves.
3 More love for Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush from @lovelygirliebits, who adores Dim Infusion.
4 @itscherrysue is all about Charlotte Tilbury's Ecstasy.
5 @lovelygirliebits has another top-notch recommendation in Tarte Amazonian Clay in Tipsy.
You might think pink's the most traditonal blusher hue there is, but it can be hard to carry off as it's often best suited to sallower skintones. These are the ones that are really floating your boats, though.
1 The Balm Instain Blush in Lace is the one that @Mascaraopinions is going to right now.
2 @itscherrysue is swooning for Benefit Rockateur.
3 Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher Rose D'Or 34, is a beauty classic beloved of @warriormomof2.
4 Benefit's cult Benetint is the one for @bespokebeauty.
Who doesn't love a rose gold cheek pop, huh? All the benefits of peach with built-in shimmer. Delicious. Here's what you're brushing on.
2 @specialagentiny's going for Benefit Coralista.
3 And she's a bit fond of Mac Springsheen too.
