So what are the best tools for applying blush? We’ve got a few favourites we’d love to share with you!

 

Powder Blush


A powder blush is best applied with a brush. Bristles achieve the correct amount of precision when blending to avoid a streaky, all-over flushed look. Luckily, we carry some of the best brushes in the industry. We have some terrific suggestions to help you get your best blush look with ease.


Sigma F15 Duo Fibre Powder/Blush Brush


Sigma’s commitment to quality definitely comes through in this gorgeous brush. Patented SigmaTech fibre bristles, high-performance filaments, and specialised tips ensure a light, even application that looks natural. SigmaTech fibres are hypoallergenic alternatives to animal hair that don't absorb valuable product.


Nude by Nature Angled Blush Brush 06


This brush is a great option if you like to apply your blush a bit closer to the natural contours of your face. The supersoft brush fibres glide gently along whilst applying your powder precisely for a stunning flush. And because the bristles are synthetic, this blush brush is perfect for lovers of vegan beauty.


Bobbi Brown Blush Brush


Trusted makeup artist Bobbi Brown designed this cleverly rounded brush to deposit the perfect amount of colour onto the cheeks. Recently updated, this brush now features even softer bristles and an improved brush head that’s perfectly rounded at the tips for even application.

Creme Blush


Creme blush requires a brush that’s a bit more dense to blend out the creamy formula without disturbing the base beneath it. We’ve selected some brushes for you that deliver exactly what you’re looking for when applying your creme blush: a flawless, dewy finish.


BECCA #34 Creme Blush / Bronzer Brush


This brush provides amazingly sheer application with minimal retention of product, and it's also environmentally responsible! BECCA uses only renewable-resource wood in the brush handle and takes a firm stance against animal cruelty. As for the brush itself, its tapered fibres help deposit just the right amount of creme blush or bronzer while giving you a sheer, perfect finish.


Laura Mercier Creme Blush Brush


This incredibly luxe brush from Laura Mercier has beautiful, soft fibres that are designed to perfectly define the cheekbone, depositing a natural, creamy finish that’s long-lasting. The synthetic fibres are durable and don’t retain much product, so you know you’re getting every last drop of what you’ve applied.

These are some of our top choices, but our full selection of brushes offers you many more options!
