I spent the majority of my life not wearing blusher because I tried way too many that didn't work for my darker skin tone. They all either too ashy, too pale, too pearl-like or too mellow. I couldn't find one to suit me, and it just reminded me of the free makeup that used to come with magazines that only worked for one skin tone.
As the years went by, I thought I'd give it a go, as I was running out of makeup categories to put on my face. Much to my surprise, I was hooked. You can't beat a blusher for boosting your complexion and making the rest of your makeup look a bit more realistic.
Blush adds some much-needed warmth to foundation, and the right one can work wonders to lift dark skin tones. If you've not been successful in your search, here are all the blushers you need to have on your radar.
If you're new to the world of blusher and want to go slow, try this soft tint. It will give you a subtle hint of colour and the blend of shea butter and coconut oil will keep your skin hydrated and ash-free.
Powder blushes can end up going everywhere, and if it's in the wrong shade, it's not a good look. That's why the Chubby Stick is a saviour for those who are a bit timid when it comes to blusher. You have more control over where you place the product and the balmy texture melts into the skin.
Forget everything you thought you knew about blush. This tube of magic gives blusher an update with its gel-cream texture that you pat into skin. It's shimmer-free and blends perfectly. You can also mix some of the shades to create your own colour match.
