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. In terms of texture, I am partial to creamy formulations be they liquids, gels, mousses or classic creams. They just blend in better than powder and look super natural. 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:

I love the buttery and ultra-creamy texture of this pink blush, which lights up any complexion.
A new summer favorite. This CC Blush adds the most universally flattering flush of warm colour with a subtle golden glow.
I adore this blush because it’s an almost dry formula that goes on sheer, but can be built up for more punch. It’s totally non-sticky and ultra long-wearing.
The sheerest gel which delivers the prettiest luminous sunny coral gleam. Plus the gel formula means it will stay put on oily skins too!
One of my most-used blush shades is this one from Iconic. It’s a magically natural pinky-brown shade that works great on light/medium skin tones. An easy and effortless go-to for everyday wear.
The soft, moussey texture of this blush turns to a matte powder finish on the skin. Super buildable, easy to apply with fingers and perfect for a spring glow. The shade Gasp (a peachy nude) is my go-to for a fresh look undisturbed by wearing a face covering.
I adore this nude blush which has a bit of rose in it adding warmth and a fresh healthy glow to complexions.
Kjaer Weis is a gorgeous brand that offers refills for every compact from foundation to blush. Sun Touched is a beautiful nudey peach that looks so glowy and fresh on the skin. I also like to put a tiny bit on the bridge of my nose.
