Yesterday (Saturday 20th March) marked the start of Spring here in the UK. The daffodils are blooming, the warmer air is making our locked down weekend walks more pleasant and the trees are in blossom. Spring definitely is the prettiest and most colourful season.
As the seasons change so does my choices in make up as I start to make my face look more colourful, bright and cheery with brighter lips and cheeks. The warmer months when your skin becomes sun kissed and the sun rays are out more often, makes this the best opportunity to play around with pinks, peaches and corals, also adding more shimmery colours that really play with and reflect light so when the sun hits it makes you ooze radiance.
In today's blog post I am bringing you 6 beautiful Spring Blushers suitable for all skin colours, to make your cheeks pop in a selection of powder and cream options.
Spring Blushers –
Nudestix Nudies Bloom – Shade Cherry Blossom Babe
A multi-tasking cream blush that can also work as a glossy eye colour and a sheer lip colour to. What I love about Nudestix is it’s a dual end with a brush on one end and colour on the other so you can take these on the go easily to keep your colour popping and fresh all day.

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush – Shade PEACHYKEEN
An ultra fine milled powder blush to give a seamless finish. This blush has a beautiful shimmer that gives colour and a highlight to, so when light reflects it gives off a baby peach highly pigmented colour with radiance.

NARS Blusher – Shade Torrid
Nars have quickly become one of my most favourite makeup brands over the last 12 months and their award winning blushers are so gorgeous. Really highly pigmented to give an intense colour. The blush powder blends beautifully and can be as natural or as intense as you like as you build up the intensity. You can even layer mattes and shimmers to give highlight to the cheeks or cheek bones. I chose this particular shade as it has a gorgeous coral colour with gold shimmer through. Team with a bronzer with it to give that golden bronze/ coral look which is my signature makeup style through the warmer months. As you can see this colour wants your cheeks to be noticed!

Hourglass Ambient Blush – Luminous Flush
Hourglass powders are to die for and became the first brand that I fell in love with when it came to powder finishes. Their blushers are a marbled hybrid with both colour pigment and ambient lighting powder giving each one a unique blend and the perfect balance of colour and radiance. Some shades including this one also come in full size or travel sizeso you could try one or go for them all!
This particular colour is a champagne rose mixed with luminous light to give a candle lit hue. The perfect spring evening cheek colour that is completely buildable for all skin colours.

Fenty Beauty owned by music superstar Rhianna launched these beautiful cream blushes in 2020. The cream colour melts into the skin to give a natural cheek flush that makes your cheeks pop with a youthful dewy glow. Suitable for all skin tones and available in 10 colours. I chose this girly petal pink for a rosy cheek look that can also be used on your lips to to create a quick and easy spring look. Apply with your finger tips so the colour melts and blends seamlessly using the natural heat of your body and tap onto your cheeks and/or lips.
