The best of blush


I am a  recent blusher convert. I have to admit that bronzer is my one true love but on my super tired days, blusher makes me look awake and put together. Today I've picked four of my favourite blushes which range from super cheap to "Christmas list" expensive. All have a great colour and formula- let me know below or by tweeting me @GemmaLEBond, what your favourite blusher is.

Ok so this one might be slightly cheating. This is a hybrid bronzer/blusher powder but I like it best used on my cheeks. With a small brush I use this as a contonour which looks amazing and subtle with my skin tone. The packaging of the Michael Kors cosmetics is utterly stunning. I use this everyday for the mirror alone!

Initially when I first tried this product, I really wasn't sure about it. But as time has gone on, I've really incorporated it into my routine. Fine One One is a cream stick formula which offers a blush, highlight and contour shade. This is the ideal pick for girls who love simple, quick makeup. I find this looks amazing with a light BB cream and lots of mascara for the perfect "no makeup' look.

Wet n Wild Heather Silk
I have so much love for lots of the Wet n Wild range (particularly the eye shadows!) and I have been using this blusher recently. The Heather Silk shade is very vibrant and would be great for anyone with a dark skin tone. The powder texture is very smooth and it applies easily. 

Another bargain product which is a great drugstore alternative to the Benefit Fine One One s the NYC BB Creme Blush. This is a great 'girl on the go' product as you simply swipe it on your cheeks, blend with your fingers and go. And the best bit? It's only £2.99!
