Red Blush: 3 Options To Consider (Really!)

Red Blush: 3 Options To Consider (Really!)

As Jess explained in detail a few months back in A Brief History Of The Classic Red Lip, red lips have long been a marker of powerful, statement-making beauty looks (and if you need any help achieving next-level red lips, Miranda has you covered). However, red blush has yet to really get its hey day, which is a shame since it is a whole other beast of boldness.

Seeing the stark, dark pigment in the pan is terrifying enough to make us all run for the hills. But with proper application—in this case, way lighter-handed than what usual blush-brushing-on calls for—and well-chosen product choices, it can end up being a total game-changer.

On that note, here are a few red blushes to add to your cosmetic collection.

Motives® Cosmetics' Pressed Blush In Azalea

This true-to-its-name blush is an exquisite red that will make your skin glow in a very fabulously flattering way. Also, the formula is non-irritating and won't clog pores. 

Melt CosmeticsEyeshadow In Love Sick

While this is TECHNICALLY an eyeshadow, who says that you can't color outside the lines and dab this onto the apples of your cheeks? Not me! It's beautiful and the texture is divine. The only bad news is that this is currently sold out. Let's cross our fingers that this comes back in stock soon though. In the meantime, be sure to check out the lipstick that inspired this eyeshadow/brush.

theBalm's How 'Bout Them Apples?® Lip and Cheek Cream Palette In Cobbler

For those that prefer cream blush, there are options for you too! This is from theBalm's How 'Bout Them Apples?® Lip and Cheek Cream Palette and it is rich, deep and alluring. Perfection. And can I mention how pretty "Caramel" and "Pie" are? Because they are and I did.

Convinced? Not convinced? Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Share them with me via Twitter.
