My Top 3 Blushers

 

This article features three of my favourite blushers: Illamasqua Naked Rose (pale dusky neutral pink), MAC Pinch O’Peach (peachy-pink) and MAC Dollymix (shimmery fuschia pink).  I have many other blushers but I find that these three products are the ones I reach for time and time again.

Naked Rose is a pale, dusky neutral pink which works particularly well on paler complexions and also with fair-medium skin tones.  I love this product when I am wearing smokey eye make-up, as it adds a subtle flush to the cheeks without making me look overly made-up.  Naked Rose is also beautiful on the cheeks for when you are looking for a very natural, fresh and glowy look.  This blusher has a beautiful, smooth, buttery texture which means it sweeps effortlessly on to the cheeks and blends perfectly.  Illamasqua’s blushers tend to be extremely pigmented.  I find that I only need to ‘tap’ the blusher brush lightly into the powder, shake off the excess and then apply a little to the cheeks.

Illamasqua Naked Rose blusher costs £21.50 and is available from Debenhams and various online retailers.

MAC Pinch O’Peach Blusher is a gorgeous peachy-pink – not too peach and not too pink.  It also works with a variety of skin tones.  This blusher is my go-to for wearing with a wide range of eye looks.  I’ve tried Pinch O’Peach with colourful looks, neutral looks and smokey looks; it goes with so many different combinations and make-up shades.  Pinch O’Peach can be worn very sheerly for a more natural effect or it can be build it up if you want more colour.  I am already on to my third container of this blusher (and hit the pan on it), so you can tell how much I must like it!

MAC Pinch O’Peach blusher costs £18 and is available from MAC stores, MAC online, House of Frasers, Debenhams and various online retailers.

MAC Dollymix is a bright, fuschia pink shade in the container but it is actually very wearable.  This blusher can be worn either dusted lightly on the cheeks for a flushed pink glow or it can build it up for a brighter pop of colour.  Dollymix also has a little shimmer to it (but not sparkly or glittery), so it helps to add some extra glow to the face.  This blusher is perfect for when you are wearing a neutral eye look and want to pep up the face a little.

MAC Dollymix blusher costs £18 and is available from MAC stores, MAC online, House of Frasers, Debenhams and various online retailers.

    • Excellent! It can be hard to choose a good blusher sometimes, so glad that this article helped you. Are you looking for anything particular blusher-wise (shade, finish, etc)? Perhaps I can help suggest one that fits what you are looking for.
