Ditch the powder blushers for cream blushers that will serve you a youthful glow this season.

This article first appeared in Harper’s Bazaar.

If you are looking for a rosy glow to boost your complexion, why not opt for a youth-enhancing cream blush, which is often easier to blend than a powder formula. Whether you apply your chosen flush with your fingers, a brush or straight from the stick, this is our edit of the very best blushers you should be wearing right now.

Lancome Teint Idole Stick Blush
This stick blusher is so easy to blend you could probably use it in the back of a moving cab without a mirror and still not end up looking like Aunt Sally. Shiseido Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush
Shiseido has been leading the way in blushers that blur the line between cream and powder textures. The brand’s ‘whipped’ blush transforms from mousse to powder in order to sit super-lightly on the skin. Glossier Cloud Paint
It’s not surprising that Glossier’s Cloud Paint is popular with the ‘no make-up’ make-up movement as the results give your cheeks just the subtlest tint of colour. Bobbi Brown Pot Rogue For Lips And Cheeks
Bobbi Brown’s classic rouge adds colour to both your lips and cheeks. Simply press into your skin alongside a radiance-boosting foundation for a just-been-kissed glow. Sisley Photo-Blush Twist
The rounded head of Sisley’s blush means it sits perfectly on the apples of your cheeks, helping to define your cheekbones and replace sallowness with a youthful gleam. Nars Cosmetics The Multiple
Called ‘The Multiple’ for its ability to be worn on the eyelids, lips and the body as well as the cheeks, this creamy shimmery blush will lift your complexion on the dullest of days. Chantecaille Cheek Gelee
The ultimate ‘just been for a walk through the countryside’ blush. The gel-to-cream texture means it blends easily into slightly drier skin types too. Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick
Charlotte Tilbury recommends blending her brand’s creamy formula into your cheeks using your fingers for a natural-looking finish. Giorgio Armani A-Blush
Allowing pinpoint application due to its lip colour inspired applicator, Armani’s liquid-to-cream blush will add a healthy vibrance to your cheeks. Trinny London Flush Blush
High pigment but with a lightweight finish, this brilliantly multi-tasking cream looks pretty when dapped on both lips and cheeks.
