Since there are hundreds of pink blushes on the market, we’ve rounded up six beauty editor-approved favorites to help you find the right one for you.
Check out all six of our favorite blush picks, below:
Searching for the perfect blush for everyday-wear? Maybelline has got your back. Out of all 10 shades of this blush, the classic shade of Pink is a great, affordable addition to your makeup stash that’ll complement every skin tone.
If you’ve checked out the NYX Professional Makeup IG feed lately, you’re well-aware that the brand celebrates full-face makeup looks. That’s why we recommend this HD blush to complete your contour and highlight routine. Check out all 12 shades to find a shade for every occasion, and if try Electro for the boldest look of all.
The blush so pretty, you should debut it on your IG feed...
Meet the baked blush that’s so pretty, it’s meant for the ‘gram. The shade we can’t stop staring at, in particular, is Dolce Pink. Not only is it the perfect pop of color, but this blush will make your skin look radiant and glowy.
Urban Decay knows we live a fast-paced life with very little time to reapply makeup throughout the day. Depending on the type of look you’re going for, check out Obsessed for a minimalist flush of color or Quickie, for a bright, statement-making shade.
You know a blush will complete your no-makeup makeup look when it’s described as a “delicate oil-free powder blush.” The long-lasting matte formula will last for hours and apply smoothly. It’s also convenient for travel or the girl on the go, since it comes in a compact with a mirror and a mini brush.
If powder blush isn’t really your thing, or you’re looking to change things up, try the new Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Line Blush, which is available in five different shades. The water-based formula is practically mistake-proof.
