I am always surprised by so many friends who say they don’t know how to wear blusher and just avoid it altogether. Personally I think blusher and mascara are my absolute two essential make up items to wake up your face instantly.
I have introduced them all to the easiest way to use blusher, a cheek stick, because you can literally put this on without a mirror, it’s that easy. Obviously a mirror is an easier way to go, but it is the simpliest way to add a natural rosy glow to your face. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t feel confused with powders and make up brushes and easy to take with you anywhere.
Having rosy cheeks gives a youthful look and makes your eyes pop, once you get a bit more confident you can use over your face to contour and highlight in a very natural way. Burts Bees have just launched a fabulous make up range with natural ingredients which will suit all skin types and for those of us who want to use make up that is responsibly sourced. Their cheek sticks are made with coconut oil, jojoba seed and sunflower seed oil, so they just glide on your skin and give a beautiful natural shine.
Some of my other favourite cheek colours are the iconic NARS Orgasm cheek stick, it really is a wonderful natural colour and instantly lifts your face. The Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush is easy to blend and you just dab it on your face and blend with your finger tips.
