Step into Spring with a refreshing new look. How, you ask? With the addition of a radiant new blusher of course. From watercolour liquids to mineral powders and crème puff formulas, the choices are endless. Over the past few years in the beauty world, bronzer and contour have been getting all the attention and we believe that blusher is just as important. Here’s why…

Depending on your skin type and the occasion, you may prefer going for a dewy moisturised ‘barely there’ look, or if coverage is the ultimate goal, a matte look could be just the thing you need. What’s more, is that there are so many blushers out there with different finishes to help you achieve whichever look you desire. So, we’ve done the digging for you and today we’re showcasing some of the best options available at Fragrance Direct right now.
