Today, I thought it’d be fun to share with you my favourite summer blushes. Let’s get started:
Sleek Makeup Blush in Rose Gold
Sleek Makeup Blush in Rose Gold (€5,49) is one of my fave blushes ever, although I don’t use it that often because it is hella pigmented. That may be great news for dark-skinned ladies, but fair beauties like me need to be very careful with application. It’s worth it, though. The colour, a shimmering peachy pink, beautifully warms up the complexion and gives your skin a healthy glow that lasts for hours. Available at Sleek Makeup.
Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Flushed
Pale princesses will love Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Flushed ($9.79). Although it looks really bright and scary in the pan, this cool, blue-based pink shade is actually very sheer (but easy to build up), which makes application easy. It is infused with shimmers, which give your cheeks a radiant glow. This too, lasts for most of the day. Available at Target.
Essence Silky Touch Blush in Secret It-Girl
Peach blushes are always in in summer. They give a nice warm glow to the complexion that makes it look healthy and radiant. Essence Silky Touch Blush in Secret It-Girl (€2,45) is one of my favourites. Colour payoff is sheer, but buildable, and it lasts for ages on my dry cheeks. Available at Kosmetik 4 Less.
Neve Cosmetics Blush in Summertime
Mineral makeup lovers need to try Neve Cosmetics Blush in Summertime (€12,90). A bronzy pink blush with a gold iridescence, it just screams summer. It blends like a dream and provides a beautiful and glowy tanned look. Plus, it can be used as eyeshadow too. I just wish it lasted longer. After 5 hours, it starts to fade quickly. Available at Neve Cosmetics.
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Candy
I rarely wear cream blushes, but in the summer, I love to give my cheek a radiant and healthy pop of colour with Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Candy ($6.99). It’s a bright coral with excellent colour payoff. You only need the tiniest amount. Its lightweight, gel-like texture doesn’t feel sticky on the lips and lasts for about 7 hours on my cheeks, which I think is pretty impressive for a cream blush. Available at Boots.
