    If you’re still attached to your favourite old powder formula, allow us convince you that a cream blusher might just be the best blusher.

    The secret weapon of make-up artists and celebrities, a cream blusher is widely regarded as the most natural way to create a healthy glow. Easy to blend and long-lasting, a cream blusher is pretty much fool-proof to apply and perfect for giving that enviable no make-up make-up look.

    A cream blusher layered onto a light BB cream, with just a dusting of setting powder over the top, is a standard make-up routine for supermodels. It’s a look that anyone can achieve, though, for healthy looking and radiant skin. And of course, most cream blushers will double up as a lip tint too, making them a great beauty investment.

    Cream blusher also works particularly well on those with dry skin, as most formulas are made with hydrating ingredients. Start with a good foundation for dry skin, then perk up those cheeks with a dab of cream blusher.

    The new Insta Blush by Revlon is the perfect choice if you prefer a sheer finish and a hint of colour. It’s one of the best high street buys around, and for less than a tenner it’s serious bang for your buck.

    Choose from the best of the best and invest in Burberry’s Lip and Cheek Bloom, or save your pennies and try a drug store solution – both will reveal luminous skin and become firm staples in your make-up bag, along with your best make-up brushes.

    Compliment pale skin with a dusty rose, or amplify olive tones with a hot orange blush. Dab onto cheeks using a dense headed brush (or just your fingers), and admire how much more awake you look – even without the addition of any other make-up.
