Blusher 101

Different options to choose the right cheeck colour.

From tint and gel to powder and cream – there are so many options when it comes to choosing the right blusher.

But one thing’s for sure: flushed cheeks looks effortlessly fabulous so read on to discover the best cheek colour for you.

Powder:

Powder blush is best for oily skin types and should be applied with a large, fluffy blush brush. Start swirling the brush lightly just below your temples until you reach the centre of your cheek. Remember to be as light-handed as possible, as it’s much easier to add more colour than it is to take it away. Try Nars Powder Blush in Gaiety.

Cream:

Cream blusher has the most intense pigment. Cream blushes are best applied with your fingers and work very well to achieve a flushed, dewy look on your face. They’re not as brilliant for those with oily skin. Try MAC Cream Blush in Something Special.

Gel:

Gel blush formulas have great staying power and work best on normal to oily skin. Apply two dots of product high up on your cheekbone with your fingers. Use a sponge to blend in swirling motions. Try Revlon Pinch Me Cheek Stain Gel in Playful Pink.

Tint:

If you’re using a liquid stain, make sure to blend quickly, and wash your hands right after unless you’re using a sponge. If you end up looking a bit circus-ready, rub a small amount of foundation onto your cheeks to dilute the colour. Try Benefit Benetint Cheek Stain.
