Blush is a product I’ve never been too concerned with, much preferring a subtle contour to rosy cheeks.
However, throughout winter I’ve really been enjoying the cliche of flushed cheeks, giving the impression you’ve been walking out in the cold on a winter’s day.
To achieve this look I’ve been loving Sleek blushes, as they’re super affordable, they have beautiful blendability and they last all day.
‘Flushed’ is a classic matte, deep pink blush, perfect for giving a flushed appearance to the cheeks.
It’s a little harder to blend than the others as it’s matte, but the pigmentation is superb.
You need the smallest amount on your brush, and I would recommend blending it a little on your hand first.
When applied to powdered skin it blends far more easily, and creates a pretty, flushed look to your makeup.
‘Pomegranate’ is a beautiful purple toned blush, with a slight shimmer running through it.
It is slightly less wearable than the others, but if used sparingly and built up gradually it can be really beautiful.
I love this if the rest of my makeup is quite subtle, perhaps with lots of mascara and a nude lip. Perfect.
While browsing the aisles I found ‘Rose Gold’, a beautiful peachy gold blush.
I usually choose this colour if I’m looking for a more highlighted effect, that doesn’t add too much colour to my cheeks.
It works beautifully with my paler skin tone, but I think this would look particularly gorgeous on olive/dark skin.
