12 Fall Blushes That Will Give You A Warm Glow
Getting that rosy-cheek look from the chilly air is one of our favorite things about fall — especially when we're snuggled up in our favorite sweater! But if temps haven't dropped where you live yet and you don't have the opportunity take a brisk morning walk, these blush shades are the perfect way to fake that healthy flush.
Instead of the bright colors of spring and summer, deeper tones make things autumnal, and you can use certain placements — like along your cheekbones or across your nose — to totally change the way your face shape looks. We rounded up a few of our personal favorite blushes, some TikTok-viral products, and high-end and affordable classics, so that whether you're pairing it with full-coverage foundation or tinted moisturizer, there's a blush for you.
Not only are Selena Gomez's blush shades named for positive attributes, but we love how far this vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free product goes with just a little bit of application. You really only need one dot on each cheek, and we love how this mauve shade has some berry undertones for fall while still looking natural.
Youthforia BYO Blush ($36)
This blush oil is actually green, but when you apply it, the product reacts to your skin's pH to give you a totally unique color that is guaranteed to look good on you. It's made with 20 plant-based and skin-friendly ingredients, so that your skin will love it as much as you do.
Glossier Cloud Paint ($20)
Cloud paint is one Glossier product we will never stop buying. The shades have enough color to add dimension to your face but still look totally subtle and natural. This deep shade is great for deep skin tones and for days where you want a darker color.
Cheek Freak Blush Balm ($18)
This blush balm is like the in-between of your favorite liquid and dry blushes. Not only will it give you some beautiful color, but it also features hyaluronic acid and meadowfoam seed oil for some serious hydration.
e.l.f. Putty Blush ($7)
We love the quality of e.l.f. products, this blush included. This formula is extra-pigmented to give you a lot of color with little application, and you can just use your fingers to blend it out. Argan oil and vitamin E will give some life back into your skin at the same time.
This TikTok viral blush features a dotted applicator that makes applying the product extra easy. Plus, the formula is long-wearing *and* smudge-proof, which makes it perfect for days when you wear a full face of makeup.
This dermatologist-tested liquid blush adds color to your skin *and* will make your cheeks plumper with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. It also helps firm up lines and wrinkles.
DreamStick Cream Blush ($26)
This stick is super-easy to apply, and you can add it on top of your skin without it building up too much. In addition to green tea and anti-inflammatory ingredients, it also has antioxidants. Add it to your lips for a cohesive makeup look.
Just like the name suggests, this blush is super-easy to take with you in your purse, in the car, or in your carry. This tinted balm is infused with ginseng and aloe vera to give your skin some nourishment while it also provides you with color.
This blush is easy to apply — just swipe it over your cheeks and blend with your fingers or your favorite brush for a color that still lets your real skin show through.
Saie Dew Blush ($24)
The water-based gel formula of this blush is great for people who like a thinner, more natural makeup look. It'll give you a natural tint without looking too intense.
This is one blush that does amazing things for your skin, including improving its dullness and helping with any discoloration. Sounds good to us!
