Our cheeks are a prime piece of makeup real-estate often overlooked in favour of a bold eye or lip look – but no more.
These tantalising new cheek picks are set to transform your chops into the plump, bronzed and radiant apples you’ve always deserved. You’re welcome.
From handy stick formulations that are saviours for on-the-go application to a runway-ready face gloss, we’ve got a bit of something for everybody.
Here are eight new cheek products you need to add to your makeup kit.
Il Makiage Mineral Baked Blush in Toxic
When it comes to blush we’re firmly situated in the more is more camp. If you love a coral-hued blush pick that gives skin a healthy radiant sheen and a natural flush that makes you look like you just got lucky, then this baked, high-impact blush is for you.
DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer
It may be cold as all hell at the moment but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a healthy, sunkissed glow. This soft, lightweight and long wearing powder revives dull, sullen winter skin with a warm swathe of natural-looking tan. A holiday in the sun might be nice but we’ll settle for a bronzer in the meantime.
HOURGLASS Vanish Blush Stick
This completely vegan formula transforms from a cream to powder finish when blended into skin for a natural blush look that flatters any makeup look. Say hello to pretty, flushed cheeks!
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick in ‘Brulee’
If you’re a fan of the OG ‘Lit’ shade of Westman Atelier’s highlighter then you need to try the new shade ‘Brulee’. The bronze shade flatters a multitude of skin tones adding a stunning sunkissed glow to any makeup look. The addition of grape extract certainly doesn’t hurt either, promoting hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulation for a fresh-faced, hydrated skin finish.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Face Palette in Italian Summer
This face palette is a one-stop shop for all things glowy and good in our opinion. Dip into the peach shimmer blush for a healthy pop of colour, or glide the buttery bronzer over cheeks for a sun-kissed shimmer and don’t forget a delicate touch of highlighter on the high points of your face for a lit-from-within-glow.
BITE BEAUTY Daycation Whipped Blush
Love the kind of blush that makes you look like you’re toting a post-orgasm glow? Then you can’t go past this uber-blendable, whipped blush offering from Bite Beauty. Pop this flush-inducing pick over cheeks and lids for a monochromatic moment to die for.
MILK MAKEUP Bronzer Baked Mini
Small enough to slip into your purse or gym bag, this creamy, matte-finish bronzer is formulated with a slew of hydrating ingredients like mango butter and apricot oil for seamless application every time.
Gucci Beauty Gel Face Gloss
Glass skin doesn’t always require an intense skin care routine, sometimes you just need a good face gloss to instill skin with that covetable reflective sheen. You’ll be looking runway-ready in no time.
