Sometimes all you need is a little flush of colour on your cheeks to take you through the day! The right blusher can transform any dull complexion and make it seem healthy and lively with just a sweep. But if you don’t like your face to look ‘made up,’ then adding perfect nude blushes can lend you an effortless natural glow.
Blushes, like foundations don’t fit into the one-size-fits-all situation. Your skin tone plays a key role in determining the right shade. The good news is that you can never go wrong with perfect nude blushes. They look natural on any skin tone and liven up the face.
Here are 7 perfect nude blushes AFG editors come back to over and over again to give you a natural flush!
#1 Nars Orgasm | S$50
Text: This blush is peachy pink perfection in a tub. It’s not just famous for its controversial name or its influencer approval, but also because it can compliment just about any Asian skin tone.
But if you think the price might dent your pockets, we’re here to tell you that a little bit of Orgasm goes a long way!
#2 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush- Ethereal Glow | S$62
Hourglass has gone a step ahead and combined the powers of Ambient Lighting Powder with classic matte blush shades.
The result: a soft focus and multidimensional colour that is sure to add a bit of ethereal glow to your cheeks. It applies much softer than it actually looks, all thanks to the swishy golden highlighter.
If your blush often disappears a few hours into application, how about you give this long-lasting formula a try. The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface has a buildable formula and the brand claims that it suitable to all skin types.
This blush also includes vitamins A and E that act as anti-inflammatory emollients as well as vitamin C that claim to fight free radicals.
#4 Zoeva Blush Palette- Coral Spectrum | S$30
Four in the price of one- what more do you really need? With a matte/satin finish, the Zoeva blush palette comes in three different colour- nude spectrum, pink spectrum and coral spectrum. However, we think coral spectrum is the best for Asian skin tones.
It has a mix of pinks, peaches, nudes and corals and is perfect for taking your look from day to night.
#5 RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek Tint- Demure | S$45
If you are not a fan of the powder blushes and prefer a more creamy blush, RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek tint in Demure should be your pick.
It’s paraben-free and gluten-free formulation plus its lip-to-cheek option makes it a clean and useful product. Plus, it’s quite buildable and we definitely recommend this blush to be in your collection.
#6 IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush- Sugar Plum | S$42
Ombre is the new black and it couldn’t be more true than in the case of blushes. Ombre blushes have taken over the cosmetic industry and IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre blush in Sugar Plum is the perfect example.
The Je Ne Sais Quois shade transforms itself from a matte to a more radiant and highlighted colour. So you get the glow but won’t look glittery.
Another gem from the famous Laneige brand is their Ideal blush duo- a product for the busy woman on-the-go. The brand’s website claims that the products is made up of “The Cross-linking Binder System, a highly adhesive formula" and that "increases the adherence to skin, keeps makeup fresh for long hours and stays strong against sweat and sebum.”
And it most certainly does the job as well. Plus, the range of colours make this blush ideal for most skin types, but especially for Asian skin tones.
