5 Glowy Blushes So Good, You Can Skip the HighlighterJuly 15, 2019
When it comes to our beauty products, we have standards for each and every one. If we’re talking blush, it needs to be long-lasting and easy to apply. But most importantly, it needs to give our skin a dose of radiance — to warm up your complexion and give it life, if you will. The good news is that it’s not too hard to cross off all of these three boxes on your blush shopping list. We’ve done the testing to share with you the best blushes that will give you glowy, radiant skin in seconds. Check out all five of our favorite picks for 2019, ahead:
We love a good on-the-go makeup product, and this drugstore find from NYX certainly makes the cut. It’s portable and small, so all you need to do is apply it to your cheekbones and then blend (with a brush, or your fingers if you’re in a pinch). Bonus points: You can use this as a multipurpose product by applying it too your eyelids or lips. Monochromatic makeup look, anyone?
If you love adopting makeup products that are so cool you can show them off to your friends, this is one you’ll want to take note of. The palette has an ombré effect, which means one end has the blush pigment, which fades into the highlighter on the other end of the palette. To apply, just sweep your blush brush in a circular motion in the palette, apply to the apples of your cheeks, and get ready for your coworkers to ask what product you’re using.
This one’s undoubtedly a drugstore must-have — we know we’re not the only ones who come back to it time and time again. It’s super buildable, so it’s perfect for adding just a dose of natural, radiance-boosting flush to your cheeks. But it’s also the icing on the cake for maximalist makeup looks.
Housed in sustainable bamboo packaging that’s seriously chic, this vegan blush will make you do a double-take. The pigments are baked into a beautiful swirl pattern, and when you apply them to the apples of your cheeks, you’ll be left with a natural-looking radiant finish that lasts all day long.
