With the weather getting warmer well actually more brighter let say, I thought I would share with you my top 5 blushers I think are worth checking out this summer!

First up, meet the Lancome Blush Subtil in shade ‘030 Eclat de Corail’ available to purchase here and is priced at £29.50.

This Lancome blush has become the blusher I reached for recently on a day to day basis. It works so well with all makeup looks and gives a beautiful radiance to the skin as well, but not glittery and not ‘in your face’ very subtil and pretty.
This blush works well on the majority of skin tones, it looks incredible if you have a beautiful olive skin too. However if your skin is darker than medium/olive I would recommend you try this blusher on in store, before buying just to make sure its definitely one for you.

 

 

Second up, is MAC Sheertone Blush in ‘Springsheen’ Which is available here and is priced at £19.50.IMG_1582 (2)

I remember purchasing this blush as I didn’t have a peachy shimmery one in my kit and I needed one for a an upcoming shoot I had. This blush gives an incredibly natural finish, its not the most noticeable on the skin, its very sheer hence the ‘Sheertone formula’ its definitely better for a pale/ porcelain skin especially red heads – works an absolute dream!

 

Next is Lancome again but this time a different texture with the Cushion Blush Subtil, this is in the Shade 024 ‘Sparkling Framboise’, available here and is priced at £29.50.

I adore this formula, I do believe these cushion formulas are easier to blend into the skin and are less likely to go patchy, due to the fresh creamy light formula. These are brilliant for a dry skin, who like to avoid powder products. These last all day on the skin and can also be used on the lips too! – Perfect on the go Blush, makes a 2-in-1!

Sticking with Lancome again is Blush Subtil in shade 011 ‘Brun Roche’ this is also priced at £29.50 and available here.

I LOVE this blusher, its very well loved and I can almost use it as a Bronzer as I’m so pale haha! Its a great nude blush, if you want to define your cheeks and add a little bit of colour to the cheeks but dont want to introduce a new brighter colour. Gorg. Pale gals, you need this in your life.

Finally is the Illamasqua Cream Blusher in ‘Promise’ which is available here priced at £23.

This is such a candy pink blusher, perfect for ALL skintypes, even the darkest of skins. Its beautiful and easy to blend again as its cream. It’s a little bit of a thicker formula opposed to the Lancome Cushion so this definitely needs to be applied before any powder is introduced onto the skin – otherwise it wont sit right and will look awful ‘bitty’ and will sit on top of the skin rather than blend in with the skin.

Please let me know your Top 5 Blushers for summer this year – I’d love to know!
