Our tried-and-tested blusher stick picks for every skin tone and budget
Cream blushes are the makeup artist-approved secret for a year-round, healthy, radiant glow. Just ask celebrity MUA Caroline Barnes, who tells us she uses the pink stuff to bring an "instant pop of radiance" to famous faces including pop princesses Kylie Minogue, Kelly Rowland and Pixie Lott.
They are more hygienic than a standard cream blush – no double-dipping fingers or dirty makeup brushes. Applied straight from the bullet, stick blushes are the easiest way to achieve a no-fuss flush. Unlike powder formulas, they tend to contain oils or have added skincare ingredients so you can make the most of moisturising and other skin benefits. "Creams add life to your skin rather than deadening it," notes Barnes. "The skincare benefits mean they don't irritate dry spots or highlight textured areas of the skin." These are our tried-and-tested favourites.
