Whether a subtle or significant beauty transformation, all through the year our make-up and skincare routines change to adapt to our seasonal needs.
Whether it’s a richer moisturiser in December or a BB cream for extra dew in July, each season brings new styles and staples to our make-up bags and skincare cabinets.
For us, extra shimmer, sequins and a deeper bronzer are a few of our winter beauty additions to help emulate our previous summer glow.
However, whilst we’re here trying to add a little sun kissed hue to our pins and collarbones in a desperate attempt to feel slimmer and more radiant, our regular make-up essentials can become overlooked and underused.
A girl’s best friend, especially in warmer months is a beautiful blusher to add depth and a pop of colour to lacklustre complexions.
One sweep of a trusty pink or peachy powder adds radiance and a youthful glow to every skin tone, type and finish.
Available in a wide variety of formulas from tints and gels to powders and stains, there’s a blusher out there waiting to add a hint of raspberry, beige, apricot or peach to compliment your complexion and natural flush.
Just because it’s chilly, it does not mean that the right party dress and Christmas accessories wont look great with a touch of blush, in fact, pairing a beautiful bronzer with a sweep of colour can be the perfect way to nail a festive glow.
Due to the wide array of products out there, a new blusher to replace your smashed, poorly colour matched or now discontinued product may seem like a daunting task.
Fear not, we have compiled a list of some of our favourite blushers on the market in a range of tones and formulas.
