Blusher is an essential item in anyone's make-up bag. A light dusting can perk up your complexion and give you a healthy glow. Just remember to choose a colour that matches your skin tone. If you are pale, pick pinks, or if you are more tanned, choose something with a tint of orange.


Paul & Joe ($171)


We chose a pink shade with hints of glitter, which gave a dramatic look and was long-lasting.


Anna Sui ($180)


Blusher is easier to apply with a pompom. This brand comes in lovely packaging and has a sweet fragrance, with a long-lasting colour. However, fragranced products are no good for sensitive skin.


Love Clover Pompom Cheeks by Soigne ($120)


The packaging is cute enough but the pompom doesn't work as well as the Anna Sui one. You might need to use a brush instead. The blusher itself is a good colour and has a fine texture.


Shu Uemura ($155)


Shu Uemura simply makes some of the best make-up products. The texture of this blush is very smooth and the colour is natural and long lasting. Definitely worth paying a bit extra for.


Blazing Star ($19)


This duo colour blush is a really good bargain, since gel-based blush lasts much longer than any powder-based product. However, you have to apply a lot because the colour is not very intense.
