Of all the products in your dresser, a blush is that ONE item that does what other products cannot. A blush will help you look healthy, awake and give you a youthful glow. You can use a blush to sculpt and bring a flush of colour to the apples of your cheeks. In short, a good blush can change your entire look in a pinch! Today, I'm going to talk about three blushes that are great on pigment and suit three different budgets.
But before that, here's everything you need to know about colours and textures when it comes to blushes:
If you're wondering what kind of blush to pick, peaches and coral blushes look absolutely stunning on wheatish skintones while bright pinks and fuschia blush tones look great on fairer complexions! We asked Meghna Butani, celebrity hair and make-up artist for some tips and tricks while picking out a blush and here's what she had to say, "I would suggest picking a blush with orange and peach undertones for Indian skin. A cream blush is perfect in winter and on days where you want to rock the dewy skin look. Powder blushes and lip and cheek tints work best in summers and in humid weather. If you have long working hours, pick a powder blush."
And now here are my top picks that suit three different budgets!
Save: Maybelline Color Show Blush (Rs 325), is the perfect budget blush. The colour Peachy Sweetie is perfect for most Indian skintones. The pigmentation is light so it's ideal for beginners too. It's matte, lightweight and blends easily. Swipe on your cheekbones for those chiselled cheeks!
Spend: NYX Professional Makeup High Definition Blush (Rs 600), in the shade Summer is the perfect go-to peachy blush. It has a hint of shimmer to illuminate your cheeks oh-so-slightly. The formulation is ultra soft and pigmented!
Splurge: Bobbi Brown Blush (Rs 2,900) in the shade Pale Pink is one of our top picks for splurge-worthy blushes in the market. The shade looks absolutely stunning on most skintones and the formula is ultra-rich, creamy and rich in pigment. Swipe it on in the morning and chances are you won't a touch-up in the evening.
