Give your complexion a rosy flush of color. You may be wondering, what is a blush brush? Designed and shaped to gently sweep blush across the cheekbones, this style of brush is the perfect denseness to grab onto just the right amount of pigments and deposit color onto the face. Check out our top blush brushes from your favorite beauty brands and discover the brush for every type of blush formula.
Swirl & Sweep
Going for a subtle color on the cheeks? Look for a rounded brush head with super-soft bristles. The unique shape of the brush is able to pick up enough blush color as you dip or swirl it into the pan. Then, tap the handle of the brush to remove excess powder so you’re not applying too much—it’s easier to build up the intensity of the color rather than putting too much on. Next, smile naturally so that you can find the apples of your cheeks, and start sweeping the color there, across to the outer edge of your cheekbones.
Let’s Get Cheeky
Look for smaller brushes to deposit blush on a concentrated area of the cheeks, as well as larger, fluffier brushes to apply to a larger area at once. Don’t forget multitasking designs that can work for not only blushes, but bronzers and face powders, too. Looking for a blush brush to use with cream blush? A stippling brush, which has one level of denser bristles at the bottom and longer less-dense bristles, can pick up the creamy color and apply it to the cheeks subtly and evenly. Also check out makeup sponges to gently melt pigments onto the cheeks for a natural-looking application.
