Glowy Blushes So Good You Can Skip the HighlighterDecember 04, 2020
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush
Specifically formulated for mature skin, this camellia oil-infused blush has a super creamy texture that doesn’t cake up on the skin or settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It can be applied with a brush or warmed up on your fingers and applied to the apples of your cheeks.
Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Line Blush
If liquid blush is more your speed, this water-based color is a must-try. It has a watercolor-like tint that’s super sheer, but it still leaves behind a dewy, healthy-looking tint with a subtle glow. For a more intense color payoff, just layer on more product.
NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint
You don’t have to break the bank to add a glowy blush in your routine. Just pick up this NYX blush at the drugstore. The cream-based product comes with a doe-foot applicator for easy application and comes in six buildable shades that give a natural flush.
Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush
Want a monochromatic makeup look? Try this multi-purpose blush from Maybelline New York. The water-based gel-cream formula not only gives glowy, dewy and pigmented color to the cheeks, but it can also be applied on your lips and eyelids.
Thrive Causemetics Cosmo Power Multi-Dimensional Strobing Blush
If you’re looking for the ultimate blush-highlighter hybrid, choose from one of two shades of this top-rated blush. Micro-pigments in the powder give skin a soft-focus shimmer. (Editor’s note: A little goes a long way, so gently apply the formula using a blush brush on your cheekbones.)
IT Cosmetics CC+ Vitality Brightening Créme Blush
This anti-aging blush (yes, you read that right), is formulated with peptides, collagen and antioxidants to plump the skin, diffuse the look of imperfections and give the skin a lit-from-within, youthful glow. We typically layer this over foundation, but you can also swipe it on a bare face to brighten your complexion.
This go-to drugstore blush is super buildable and perfect for adding a natural, radiance-boosting flush to your cheeks. It’s available in matte and shimmer shades, too, so you can customize your look.
Antonym Cosmetics Organic Certified Highlighting Blush
Housed in sustainable bamboo packaging, this vegan highlighter-blush duo provides both color and highlight to your face. It’s a pressed powder formula that’s silky to the touch and offers a velvety finish.
