I have a serious obsession with blush. I just don’t feel like myself without it. It instantly makes me feel more alive, healthy, and frankly prettier.

I usually concentrate colour on the apples of my cheeks (the smile trick is so spot-on), and then blend it up and out over my cheekbones toward my ears. Here are my top cream blushers that I’ll wear on rotation all summer long:

For the ultimate blush flush, Saie’s water-based gel blush is a fresh and weightless texture that glides and blends into the skin like a dream.
