The Only Two Blush Formulas You Need

The relationship story between blusher and I is one you've heard a lot of times before - there's so much more love now than there ever was hate and I actually enjoy sweeping the stuff on my cheeks. If like me you're a little hesitant with applying a flush of colour, I've picked out two of the best to start you off on the right foot; both being fool-proof powder formulas and easy to wear hues that come in plenty more of them. They step in as my most used and I figure if they trusty enough for a blush-scaredy like myself, they should be good for just about everyone else...

My most favourite formula of them all comes from Hourglass as their Ambient Lighting Blushes, a marble-swirled combo of cheek colour and their Ambient Lighting Powders to grace the skin with a bit of a healthy glow as well as a hint of peach or pink at the same time. Texture wise, they're incredibly silky to the touch and blend on just beautifully, sheer but buildable without the sheen highlighting any blemishes or large pores. I've got an individual in the shade Radiant Magenta, a vibrant fuchsia paired with their Radiant Light powder for a summer glow. I also alternate between another three from their Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, for something more plum-toned, Mood Exposure is fused with Mood Light for an over-all brighten and works so well for any neutral makeup. In the middle is Incandescent Electra, a cool peach paired with Incandescent Light for all the radiance and the rose-pink being Luminous Flush doubled-up with Luminous Light for some subtle colour. It's currently out of stock everywhere but their Ambient Lighting Edit is a dreamier, extended version. 

As an extremely close second, Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blushes are up there being just as lovely with some straight up colour. Baked naturally in the sun and infused with Amazonian Clay, they wear well for up to 12 hours, adapt to all skin types and deliver some insane pigmentation. I've got one in the shade 'Exposed' as worn above, a muted mauve-plum and comes into play on a near daily basis this time of year, but I'll take any of their 14 shades going and hello, how amazing is this palette please?!

Whether you're a blush newbie or struggle to find one that works for you, I highly recommend all of the flushes above to get you on the road to some serious blush loving...
