The Blush Is Back: The Cheeky Trend For This Spring

From jelly to powder blushes, this is how to get cheeky with this year's latest blush drops so far.

We are so happy that blushes are a thing again. Don’t get us wrong, we loved the glass skin and highlighter look, but nothing brightens up your complexion like a good blush, while also giving you the illusion of cheekbones (unfortunately, we don’t all have razor sharp cheekbones like the Hadid sisters) and making you look more youthful and fresh.

For blush beginners, keep the look natural by starting your flush at the apple of your cheeks – basically where rosiness would appear when you’re literally blushing – then blend upwards. And don’t over blush. Remember, you want a soft rosy glow not an overly red face. 

We’ve put together a list of the latest blushers – all launched in 2020 – that we’re obsessed with.
