Cheek to chic

Sometimes all you need is to blush

With a little blusher you can go from lacklustre and tired to bright-eyed and bushy tailed. “Hello world!”

During the military operation that is packed bags, school lunches and lost socks, it’s unlikely you’ll have time for straightening irons or the perfect smokey eye. As you reluctantly cut down your beauty regime to a few crucial cosmetics, remember that the right rouge is a busy mum’s best friend. Here are our top picks for chiseled cheekbones in a hurry.

Cream Blusher

“If you want to create a natural flushed look then I always recommend using cream blusher,” says celebrity make-up artist, Aimee Adams. “Because you blend it into the skin with your fingers, it creates a very subtle flushed look, rather than an overly blushed effect and it also has amazing staying power so will last all day long.”

Powder Blusher

Powder BlusherPowder devotees and those with oilier skin will prefer a matte finish. These blushers are great for layering and experimenting with different intensities, not to mention their tendency for long-lasting colour. To avoid looking like a clown, smile when looking in the mirror and sweep a little across the apples of your cheeks towards your hairline.  Of course, shopping for a powder can be a bit of a minefield so here are two that get our seal of approval.

Liquid Blusher

A blusher with a cheeky personality, this multi-faceted liquid can double up as a lip tint, saving you much needed space in your already busy handbag. However, a word of warning - use a small lip brush or the brush it comes with as it has amazing staining power and will stain your fingers! For a subtle blush, apply one light coat or layer the product up for a bolder effect.
