Sunburnt, glowy cheeks are in – to master the summer trend, pick from our stand-out blushes in powder, gel, cream, and stick form.
The 7 Best Blushes For A Dewy, Sun-Flushed Glow

The sun’s out; now’s your chance to embrace the magic of the golden hour. How so? Invite the correct formulas to your beauty arsenal. Swap burgundy for rosy pink, neutrals for popping hues, and powder textures for their creamier counterparts. As for me, summer is synonymous with flushed, sunburnt cheeks – better yet, they’ve also received Alia Bhatt and Hailey Bieber’s stamp of approval, among other notable stars.

Endowed with the tremendous power to brighten up a dull look, blush adds warmth and radiance to pale skin, and for an I-just-left-the-beach effect, you must pick a dewy variant that means business. After scouring through the beauty marketplace, I've narrowed it down to the best blushes for a sun-kissed glow.

This lightweight, creamy blush stick packs a punch, melting into the skin for an ever-so-slightly-sunburnt effect. Buildable and long-lasting, the attached brush aids with blending to avoid a stark blotch. Choose to wear it solo for an au naturel effect, or layer on full-face makeup for intense drama. Either way, heads be turnin’, girl.

We’ve done pH lip gloss, pH lipstick, and pH lip oil; now make way for pH blush. We promise this formula is more than what meets the eye. The seemingly black gel-like blush gives a pink payoff, transforming as per your skin’s pH level. Moisturising and blendable, apply as much as required for a natural flush – for a deeper pink, dab a few times over.

The blush-cum-foundation-cum-moisturiser braves heat and humidity, without giving off an over-mattified finish.
