Blusher is one of the most essential products in any beauty bag. It can transform pale and tired looking skin in an instant and it’s one of my go-to beauty products. There are so many different blushers out there, from subtle to bright and bold shades. If you’re not sure about which shade is best for your skin the rule of thumb is rose or peach-toned blushers are best if you have fair or medium skin. Orangey and deep berry tones are best if you have darker skin.
I’m a huge fan of powder blushes as I find they are much easier to work with. Cream blushers are great for creating that dewy look, just be sure to apply them before you set your make up with powder.
So the first thing you need to ensure is that you have a decent blusher brush. Three of my favourite are…
Now to the main event.
I was having a look at the new flagship H&M store in Toronto the other week and the beauty section is insane. I must have spent a good 45 minutes there. The blusher selection is pretty decent and includes this Hot Pink and Rosy Brown Blusher.
Next up is The French Kiss blusher from Bare Minerals. I love the shade and the brush it comes with which makes it so much easier for a quick touch up on the go. Shop this pretty blusher here.
If you’re a fan of cream blushers this Fresh Blush from The Body Shop should be on your list. The colour is so fresh and the cute little pot is perfect for popping in your handbag. Shop this gorgeous Florida Sunstar blusher here.
Becca is a beauty brand I adore. It’s a little on the pricey side but a treat now and then never hurt anyone! This mineral blush gives a beautiful matte finish. Shop for it here.
I admit that I sometimes pick beauty products just because I like the packaging! This Too Faced blusher is a prime example. I love the heart shape, I love that it has a mirror, and if it had a brush built in there it would be off the chart. A super cute product for any beauty fan.
I picked this next blusher because I love the vibrant colour. Perfect for those long summer evenings at a beach bar. Shop this colour pop blusher from Urban Decay here
