The Ultimate Guide to bareMinerals Blushes

November 28, 2023

 When we want to elevate a beauty look, we typically think of adding a statement lip, dramatic wing or smoked-out eyeshadow. But did you know that swiping on some colorful blush can offer a similar result? This versatile product can be used in a variety of ways (applied with everything from fluffy brushes to your own fingertips) to achieve multiple looks. Blush can awaken skin by adding a subtle, natural-looking flush of color, it can balance dullness with a sun-kissed warmth, or provide bold, look-at-me color. And, just like a good bronzer or eyeshadow, blush looks great when layered and blended for a custom result.

When it comes to selecting which is the best blush for you, we're all about wardrobing, so you have a variety of textures, finishes and colors at your fingertips. So, to help you build out a blush collection of your own, we're breaking down all the types of blushes we make, product by product and sharing what makes each formula unique. Prepare yourself to want every shade.
