Rouge is a tricky product to work with – if you apply too much, you end up look like a clown; too little, and it’s barely even noticeable! However, it seems that Aditi Rao Hydari has mastered the art. Her subtle, yet naturally flushed cheeks are everything we’ve ever dreamt of. Since we neither possess her skills, nor have a makeup artist at our disposal, we turned to the next best thing… gel blushes! These lightweight products are known to deliver the sheerest of colours, thus making them practically fool-proof. Here are some of our favourites!
Oil-free, water-based and luminous, this blush has all the qualities of a winner. Not only does it deliver the perfect amount of colour, but also has a cooling effect when applied.
We love products that provide a unique colour to each user! Smashbox’s innovative gel blush is clear on application, but soon reacts with your skin to give off a translucent flush.
With its refreshing finish and pretty shades, Givenchy’s gel formula is worth the splurge. Dab it on to the apples of your cheeks for a pop of colour.
Makeup that’s actually good for your skin? Although it sounds like a myth, Josie Maran‘s award-winning blush is infused with coconut water and Argan oil, to give you dewy, rosy cheeks and tonnes of hydration!
Don’t be fooled by the appearance of these seemingly simple tubes. A small amount is enough to provide a gorgeous hint of colour on your face.
