Blusher is a must-have in the make-up bag, but how do you find the best blusher for you? Well, whether you prefer a peachy tint, a rosy glow, or even if you're more of a bronzer girl, there’s a blusher out there for everyone.

Now for our top tips. If you’re after the best blusher for pale skin, always go for a more peach-toned colour, it won’t clash as harshly as a pink or red blush and will look a lot more au naturel.
And the best blusher for olive skin? Well, a deep berry colour will compliment your skin well, and a little dab of sheer cream blush on the very top of your cheekbones (just under the outer corner of your eye and up towards your temple) will give you that natural, healthy glow.

Remember, with powder blushers, although they always give a gorgeous matte look, it’s easy to look like you’ve over done it. So make sure you use a soft blusher brush, we like the Urban Decay Good Karma Blurring Brush, and apply with a light sweeping motion.
So, with all this in mind, take a look at our top 10 best blushers that we love. And don’t forget that when you’re putting your blush on, less is always more!
