A beautiful makeup trend that is ultra wearable is applying blushes inspired by Spring blooms. You’ll see bright colors at makeup counters everywhere but once you apply them, they give you a fresh look without overpowering your face. Don’t be intimidated by what you see in the packaging because the newest blushes are quite sheer and subtle.
One of the prettiest powdered blush collections in the market is Clinique’s Cheek Pop. Each blush looks like a flower and the color looks very natural. The best tip to apply blusher is to smile and sweep the powder on the apples of your cheeks. My personal favorites are Peach Pop y Plum Pop, depending on my mood and outfit.
Bobbi Brown also has a wide variety of blushers. I’ve been using Pale Pink for years and now I’ve added the Iluminating Bronzer in Pink Peony.
If you’re looking for soft hues and an oil-free formulation, try Blush Subtil from Lancome. There are many rose-hued tones but if you prefer more of a ginger or peach blush try Miel Glacé. It reminds me of tea colored roses. If you’re looking for a palette, Lancome has a bronzing one (the new Star bronzing palette) that combines a peachy pink, a highlighter and a natural -looking bronzer.
Nars is another brand that has a wide variety of options for all skin tones. Its “Orgasm” is already a staple in makeup bags across the world but you can also find other pink hues that don’t have any shimmer to them. Some pretty colors you can try: Desire y Amour.
What I love about the flower-inspired blushes is that you don’t need to be an expert to apply them. They give your face a fresh look in seconds without making you look clownish.
