Look you’ve probably noticed by now, but blush is IN. All the different techniques are taking over our feeds and we’re loving seeing vibrant hues have their moment. So what’s the trick to finding your perfect pink? Understanding your undertone. Warm undertones = warm pinks, while cool undertones = cool pinks. Seems simple enough, right?
So are you ready to hop on the blush train? Thanks to this stunning trend (shoutout to Selena Gomez on that one), blushes are everywhere at the moment! And so it can be totally overwhelming trying to decide which is the best for you. So, let’s narrow down your search. We've scoured our (probably way too extensive) collections and checked out what the makeup pros have been loving to come up with our edit of the best pink blushes on the planet. Dramatic but fair!
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Happy
We think it’s pretty safe to say Rare Beauty is THE blush go-to at this point. We love how highly pigmented the lightweight liquid is, so hot tip: a little goes a long way. Designed to layer effortlessly over your base, ‘Happy’ is the perfect cool toned pink to give you a dewy glow.

Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Crush On Cupid
Can Rihanna do any wrong? We’re yet to see it! This cream blush is a prime example of her perfection. The cream formula creates the most natural finish by easily melting into your skin while still giving a vibrant colour payoff. ‘Crush On Cupid’ is a hyper-pigmented pink pop that’ll have you standing out amongst the crowd.

Dior Rosy Glow Blush in 001 Pink
With a lightweight second skin finish, you’d be forgiven for forgetting you popped a bit of the Dior Rosy Glow Blush on this morning. That, however, is of course impossible because everyone will be complimenting your flushed glowing cheeks. Thanks to colour reviver technology working with your skin's natural pH and moisture levels, you’re basically applying a ‘custom’ blush! How chic!

Essence The Blush in Beloved
There’s nothing better than running into the chemist on a mission and stumbling across a new staple beauty product.

And who doesn’t love that?!
