Blushing Over These Blushes

Looking for a cute, rosy glow this winter without stepping into the cold? Don’t worry, we’ve got you! If you don’t already use blush - you’re missing out. It’s the perfect way to finish your makeup look and add dimension to your skin

Whether you’re into cream, powder, matte or dewy blush looks, we’ve pulled together a list of our fave cheek enhancers that have got us blushing:

Glossier Cloud Paint

If natural is your go-to look then Glossier Cloud Paint is definitely the one for you. It’s sheer, easy to work with and perfect for layering so you can go as pigmented as you like. It also contains blurring pigments that give a soft-focus effect that doesn’t accentuate texture or pores (hand it over please).

There are eight shades available (that you can easily blend together to create your own custom shade of choice) in this cream-gel blush formula, making it easy to apply and giving a dewy, streak-free look. It helps to retain water in your skin too so it looks moisturized and plumped. We’re obsessed with the cute little paint-pot packaging too!

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand

Currently sold out everywhere thanks to Madison Beer’s Vogue “Beauty Secrets” episode where she revealed that this is the blush she uses (along with the Hollywood Contour). It’s gone totally viral online, so if you spot it in stock then add it to your basket ASAP. Madison uses Pinkgasm for her signature rosy glow, but it comes in five other radiant shades too.

It’s a glowy highlighter blush that’s perfect for a dewy, skin-perfecting finish so if glow is your go-to look then this is the blush for you (if you can ever find it in stock). It applies with a built-in sponge that dispenses blush directly onto your skin for a hydrated, glowing finish. Sign us up to that waiting list right now!

e.l.f. Putty Blush 

This cream to powder blush formulation is to die for (and ideal if you’re looking to keep it to a lower price-point). This lightweight putty blush is infused with Argan oil and vitamin E to boost hydration, nourish your skin and melt into the rest of your makeup perfectly. It’s the blush version of their holy grail product Poreless Putty Primer.

It has a highly pigmented (with a buildable formula), creamy formula and a natural, glowy semi-matte powder finish. It comes in six different skin flattering colors for all skin tones. It’s also super easy to apply (you can easily apply with your fingers or the Putty Blush Brush), making it the perfect choice if you’re on the go.

Pixi On-The-Glow Blush

You might have seen this blush go viral on TikTok and sell out pretty quickly. After trying it, we can see why! It’s the perfect glossy, dewy texture and glides onto the skin to give a wash of color. It’s easy to layer and it’s multipurpose (you can use it on your lips too).

The balm texture is super-smooth and hydrating, conditioning the skin as it’s applied. It gives serious gloss to the skin and comes in three different flattering shades for all skin types. It’s also formulated with ginseng, aloe vera and fruit which makes it packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, it’s paraben-free and not tested on animals. What’s not to like?

NARS Cosmetics Blush

You know exactly which blush we’re talking about. The OG. The classic. The one who’s consistently named at top of the blush charts (and is the best selling blush in the US) every year since it launched in 1999. NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm. This shade is meant to replicate the color of your cheeks know, and is said to be a universally flattering shade for all skin tones.

It’s a light pink and peach with a super-subtle shimmer that gives a gorgeous, natural flush (with just a hint of glow) to the skin. In fact, it’s so glowy you can even use it as a highlighter with any other blush of your choice. It’s no wonder that NARS sell one every single minute. If you’re not into Orgasm, it comes in 24 other colors as well as a liquid formulation and multipurpose stick.
