Spring has finally sprung! Well sort of….☔️, but just because our weather isn’t exactly spring-like just yet, doesn’t mean our makeup bags can’t have a little update. One of the best ways to add a pop of colour to your regular makeup routine is with a bold blush. That pop of colour helps deliver a healthy and refreshed look to the skin just in time for Spring! To help you get your glow on, we put together our favourite blushes from creams to powders to liquids. We unpack each product below.
Marc Jacobs – Shameless Bold Blush in Rebellious
This may be a tiny palette but it sure is mighty when it comes to colour payoff. This silky, bright pink shade is a vibrant and impactful one, sure to give you that cheeky look we’re all after for Spring. This particular formula is infused with bio-lipids and amino acids which help to leave the product lightweight and silky. Given the smooth texture of the blush, it makes blending seamless and never streaky.
Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato Lip + Cheek Colour
Liquid blush can be intimidating for some, especially since powder blush has been the go-to for so long. The best thing about liquid blush is that it’s buildable. A little bit of this tint will create a dewy, fresh and very light look. A heavier application, will create a deeper colour and more matte effect. The look is totally up to you! The Shu Uemura Tint is available in a stunning line of gelato shades, and can be used on both cheeks and lips for a subtle monochromatic look.
Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop
This heavenly, barely-there liquid to powder blush is one the most perfect compacts you’ll ever own. The Cheek Pop is a liquid pigment that transforms into a very smooth powder finish. This is a great blush if you’re looking for a pop of colour without any sheen. These blushes will definitely help to create impact with any look you’re wanting to try out for Spring. Best of all, The Clinique Cheek Pop is formulated without parabens!
TOO FACED Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush – Peaches and Cream Collection in Peach Dream
Cream blush has to be one of the most versatile makeup products available to us. You can use it on your cheeks, to highlight, as an eye shadow or lipstick. The possibilities are endless. The Too Faced Melting Powder Blush is described as a “buttery” cream blush that transforms to the softest powder finish. This blush is so blendable, and leaves the most radiant matte colour on skin. Even though it’s a matte blush, the consistency is so light that it offers a bit of a soft glow, plus it smells like Peaches and Cream, which will literally make you want to apply and re-apply all the time.
NARS Liquid Blush in Luster
We want to bathe ourselves in this NARS Liquid Blush! Luster is a sheer, golden apricot shade that works well with all skin tones. It’s an intensely, pigmented punch of colour. The liquid formula is infused with monoi & tamanu oils, which aid in the blending and buildability of the product. You only need to use one pump for both cheeks and you can even mix this product with a powder blush overtop if you wish.
CIATE London Glow to Illuminating Blush in ‘In Too Deep’
Everything about pink screams Spring to us, especially this lavender pink illuminating blush. When applying makeup, including blush, you want to keep in mind that throughout the day, your makeup will move, so using a long-wearing blush is key. This blush really helps to brighten skin, and you can achieve a range of looks depending on the amount applied. This light pink colour is perfect for an everyday blush and will keep those cheeks glowing beautifully.
