When your skin is looking tired or lacklustre, the rosy glow from a quick blend of blusher is one of the quickest and easiest ways to bring life to a dull, flat complexion—and from powder blushers to creams and sticks, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to faking flushed, rosy cheeks. The latest makeup formulation to go viral is liquid blushers—just like creams and powders, they add a long-lasting pop of pigment, but the best thing about liquid formulas is that they also leave skin with a fresh, dewy glow. If you find that powder blushers turn cakey or that creams fade off by 3pm, a liquid blusher is the best way to achieve a natural looking colour to your cheeks which lasts from day to night.
Liquid blushers may look intimidating at first, mainly because they appear more pigmented than they actually are, but thanks to their liquid texture, they’re incredibly easy to apply. Apply just a few dots to the apples off your cheeks, then with a few swipes of a blusher brush or makeup sponge you can easily blend and diffuse the colour across your cheeks. Converted?
