Our cheeks seem to be glowing with the excitement of spring festivities to come. Adding some blush on them to go with our smiles provides the perfect subtle yet colorful touch. This season’s natural spring blushes are deliciously eye-catching in the color array of oranges, peaches, pinks, and more.
Being able to achieve a natural, dewy face is a go-to beauty look for many of us in these warmer months. It’s a quick apply-and-go that will last all day and stay flawless in any activity you do. Blush is a main piece in this look, providing color to cheeks making skin appear healthy and naturally flushed.
Popular blush colors this spring have kicked it up a notch by being both vibrant and pigmented (but not too much so that we end up resembling Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games). Powdered blushes are not the only ones in the blush game this time around; along with them are tint, cream, and stick blushes, all of which have become just as popular–if not more–than the powder quality blushes.
Benefit Cosmetics never disappoint in delivering us not only incredible products, but ones that are packaged adorably too. Their Box O’ Powder blushes have been a beauty favorite in our makeup collections for what seems like forever. Rockateur is one of their recent blush creations in a rose gold color that we adore. It shines beautifully in the sun’s heat, containing the best components in order to show off the color brighter. With a blush brush, sweep Rockateur onto the apples of your cheeks or cheekbones and your look is set for the day.
Ever since Urban Decay released their Naked Collection, we just haven’t been able to get enough. Natural, neutral colors are what the products in the collection are all about, including their palette Naked Flushed. Naked Flushed is available in two palette colors: Natural and Native. Each contains a beautiful bronzer, highlighter, and blush that are similar to the basics of your wardrobe. This travel-ready palette can be used together as a full look or by themselves, such as adding the blush to your everyday look. The blush provides a flawless touch to your skin and feels so light it’s as if you aren’t wearing any. That’s a plus in our book!
Maybelline is one of the top quality drugstore products giving us beauty must-haves that are usually carry-ons in our bags. From their lippies to their mascaras, there is no going wrong with this brand, especially when using their Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush. The packaging and name of the blush not only is super cute but is made to be a lightweight and buildable product. Its spring loving colors last a long time and prove that a little goes a long way when applying. With just a swipe of your fingers and a dab across your cheeks, you’ll be blushing in no time.
A high-end but affordable brand that we are always raving about for their quality and easy-to-use products has been NYX Cosmetics. The wide range of colors and quick usage makes them extremely popular. The NYX Stick Blush is a fan favorite and is easy-to-use right away. Available in an array of pinks that are rich and creamy, there’s no stopping you from finding your perfect match. Try applying them as swatches along your skin before purchasing to see which one you’ll fall in love with. Once purchased, you’ll have a blush that you can just slide along your cheeks, blend, and be off with to have a glow all day.
Another Benefit Cosmetics beauty favorite has come in the form of cheek stains that won’t smudge or melt away. One of their most recent and popular is Lollitint, which radiates the candy it is inspired from. It provides a color pop that you can apply not only on your cheeks for a blush, but on your lips as well. This sweet color needs just three strokes across the apples of your cheeks and then a quick blend with your fingers. If you want the color to stand out more, just repeat.
