It's hardly a newsflash at this stage that I have dry skin, so you will know that I generally prefer cream and liquid blushes and highlighters. I've shown you my favourite cream blushes previously, but today I want to share my top five liquid blushes, and if you have dry skin too, I highly suggest you give them a go. Don't worry about application, or your base being disturbed - these honestly couldn't be easier to use!
Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wands: I feel like these are the products that got me into liquid blush, as opposed to cream blush. They are so easy to dab on (doe foot applicator, which can be a bit messy - it's not my favourite!), either directly on to the skin, or on to your hand and then apply to the face with either a beauty sponge, brush, or your fingers. These give a very lit from within look - they aren't glittery, but they certainly brighten the complexion and you wouldn't necessarily have to wear a highlighter with them. I have three shades, and used to have the highlighter (which I must repurchase as the shade really suits my complexion). They are so easy to blend and take the face fro drab to fab in an instant!
Iconic London Sheer Blush: My latest obsession! There are six shades available and I chose Cheeky Coral, which is the most beautiful pinky/peach tone. This has a nozzle at the top of the tube, so I sometimes apply directly to my cheeks and other times to the back of my hand, and then dab on to my cheeks and blend, which is does seamlessly. There are no harsh lines, it doesn't disturb your base and it's long-lasting. It's quite pigmented when dispensed, yet looks very natural on the skin. This is a brand that I want to try more from because I have a feeling that I would love the products. Don't forget to use my BEAUTYLYMIN code at checkout for 21st off on Look Fantastic.
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush: I love the simple packaging of these blushes, and they have a doe foot applicator, which I personally prefer to apply to the back of my hand, and then to the face because the pigmentation is on the stronger side, yet it does blend well and is best applied in small amounts and built. I find that this sets quickly, so I just do one cheek at a time, and the finish is very natural - not overly glowy, just a soft flush of colour to the cheeks.
Sculpted by Aimée Liquid Lights: These are very similar to the CT Beauty Light Wands, except the applicator is more practical, and they're more affordable! The texture is really beautiful and it applies so easily and looks very natural, but also has that hint of glow, which lifts the complexion. Even on minimal makeup days, a dab of this and some concealer and you will look more alive!
By Terry Liquid Brightening CC Blush: Finally, this beauty, which has a clickable pen dispenser and brush applicator, which is unique from all of the others. I love the shade that I have (Rosy Flush), but wish they would expand the shade range to more than two! The formula is very lightweight, it feels hydrating and looks very natural on the skin, yet won't suit those who prefer a matte finish as it is quite dewy. My only issue with it is that I can't see how much is left in it. Oh, and I love that it smells of roses, but if you don't like that scent, don't worry because it doesn't last on the skin (the scent that is, not the blush!) .
