Blusher has and will always be a staple of any makeup collection. Perking up the complexion and adding a natural flush of colour to your cheeks, blusher is a product which flatters and looks beautiful on everyone.

Although traditional powder blushers are still a must-have, liquid blushers have recently made a real impression on the beauty world. With a fresh, dewy finish, liquid blushers look so natural and blend seamlessly into the skin for a delicate, soft finish.

Perfect for the summer months when wearing a lighter base and minimal makeup, liquid blushers are also a wonderful transitional makeup product. In autumn and winter when you may be wearing a heavier converage, a liquid blush can help to keep your base looking fresh and natural, without the build up some powders leave.

To help you achieve a gorgeous, natural flush, we have curated a list of our favourite liquid blushers for a fresh and glowing complexion.
