My favorite blush products
Blush is such a fun makeup tool that adds color, warmth, and dimension to our face. Having shades of bright pink to dark red add so much versatility to any makeup look. My skin is fairly tan so I prefer a darker red, as it enhances my cheekbones, but I also opt for a pinker or browner color when I want to be subtle. The blush you choose ultimately depends on personal preference, skin type, and desired finish. However, here are some popular blush products that I have used and loved.
1. NARS Blush
NARS offers a wide range of blush shades that are known for their highly pigmented formula and long-lasting wear. Their blushes come in both matte and shimmery finishes, allowing you to achieve a natural flush or a luminous glow.
2. Milani Baked Blush:
Milani Baked Blushes have become a favorite among beauty enthusiasts due to their affordable price and impressive quality. These blushes have a silky texture and provide a radiant finish with buildable coverage.
3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush:
Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blushes are beloved for their long-lasting formula that stays put throughout the day. Infused with natural clay, these blushes offer a wide range of shades, from soft neutrals to vibrant pinks, and provide a matte, velvety finish. They slowly fade but are super cute for a casual look.
4. Benefit Cosmetics Boxed Blushes:
Benefit's boxed blushes, such as "Dandelion" and "Coralista," have gained a cult following for their adorable packaging and beautiful color payoff. These blushes offer a blendable texture and provide a natural-looking flush with a subtle sheen.
5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush:
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes combine blush and highlighter in one product, creating a soft-focus effect on the skin. These blushes have a marbled design that adds depth and luminosity to the complexion, giving a natural, lit-from-within glow. Plus they are so pretty to look at.
6. Glossier's Cloud Paint Blush:
This blush is my absolute go to since it is creamy and lightweight so it is super easy to blend, even with just your fingers. The formula is buildable, allowing you to customize the intensity of the color on your cheeks. One bottle lasted me 8 months and I used it almost every day!
At the end of your day, don't forget to cleanse your face!! Wearing blush to sleep will not do you any good, so it is important to clean it all off to avoid clogging your pores. I always use my Seadrop Seafoam Cleanser first, then apply moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated.
