Sculpting blush sticks are our new make-up must have and thankfully, they’re super easy to use! Cream blushers are seriously on trend for spring and, unlike powders they aren’t cakey and will leave you with a natural, healthy looking flush. Grab your stick and swipe over the apples of your cheeks, using your fingertips to blend. Finish off by dusting a little highlighter just above the cheeks to enhance your cheekbones. Here’s our pick of the best sculpting sticks around…
1. We love the Kiko Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush In Coral Rose, £7.90, for an easy to blend, ultra long lasting blush, with lots of product included for your money. A dusty rose shade, it glides on smoothly and the cream to powder finish means you can quickly blend it with your fingers for a subtly sculpted look.
2. The Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick In Peachy Blush, £22, is another one of our faves. Its velvety finish keeps skin shine-free all day and the gorgeous dark peachy colour is a great natural shade for contouring. The subtle brightening formula also gives skin a gorgeous shimmer so it’s perfect for summer!
3. Topshop’s Glow Stick In Spotlight, £10, is a high street hit. The blush goes on sheer at first, but you can easily build up to a much stronger colour by adding a couple more layers. Blend under your cheeks to create contours or dab a little onto the apples of your cheeks for an extra glow. The dewy finish defines cheekbones and creates a gorgeous natural sheen.
4. Lastly, the Nars Matte Multiple in Siam, £30, is a super pigmented, matte blush. One quick sweep is all that’s needed to cheat a vibrant flush of colour and fake those contours. The creamy texture means it doubles up as a lippie too – amazing! This blush stick should last you through that big night out!
