1. NARS COSMETICS Limited Edition Oversized Orgasm Blush
NARS Orgasm is probably the most iconic blush of all time. It’s a beautiful peachy-pink with a soft gold shimmer – the perfect illuminating blush that suits pretty much all skin tones.
NARS COSMETICS Limited Edition Oversized Orgasm Blush, £30
2. BENEFIT Blush Bar
Benefit Cosmetics do brilliant blushes in a range of shades. The formula is great, and they're ideal for travel as they come with their own high-quality brush. I love Rockateur because it has a soft shimmer for lots of glow.
BENEFIT Blush Bar, £49.50
3. M.A.C Powder Blush
MAC have the biggest range of blusher shades. Fleur Power is my favourite as it provides a fresh offset to a smoky eye and the prettiest natural-looking pink flush.
MAC Powder Blush, £19.50
4. CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm
If cream blush is your thing, you can’t go wrong with the Amp’d Up Apple Clinique Chubby Stick. Draw on and blend out for juicy, fresh skin.
CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm, £20
5. BARE MINERALS, Gen Nude Powder Blush
bareMinerals Gen Nude has a match for every skin tone. Its finish is like velvet on the skin, blurring imperfections and brightening the complexion. Peachy Keen is my perfect peach pink.
BARE MINERALS, Gen Nude Powder Blush, £22
6. STILA Convertible Colour Dual Lip And Cheek Cream
Stila’s Convertible Color Lip and Cheek cream in shade lillium is an instant skin pick me up. It has a gorgeous creamy, translucent texture and is so easy to use, it almost blends itself.
STILA Convertible Colour Dual Lip And Cheek Cream, £16
7. BOBBI BROWN Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks
Sticking with creams, Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge is also an icon. A kiss of health and hydration, my favourite shade is pale pink.
BOBBI BROWN Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks, £22
8. URBAN DECAY Afterglow Blush
For bolder pops of colour, look to Urban Decay’s Afterglow Blush. It uses a sheer yet buildable formula in a range of stunning shades. Bang makes a beautiful statement, especially for darker skin tones, and I love Score with its soft gold flecks.
URBAN DECAY Afterglow Blush, £21
9. LANCÔME Blush Subtil Cushion
For a different kind of blush experience you need to try Lancôme Blush Subtil Cushion. The formula is light as air and blends effortlessly into the skin, imparting a sheer flush of colour with a dewy finish. Sorbet Grenadine is gorgeous.
LANCÔME Blush Subtil Cushion, £30
10. CHARLOTTE TILBURY Pretty Youth Glow Filter Blush Highlighter Duo
Charlotte Tilbury’s new Pretty Youth Glow duo is a bit of a multitasker. The two shades shape and lift the face, with a skin perfecting formula. You’ll look fresh and glowy in a flash with Seduce Blush, my favourite shade duo.
