A list of the best blushes to keep you glowing in the winter!

While Tony Montana did say the look of love is in “the eyes chico, they never lie”, sometimes it’s more obvious on the checks. It’s hard to fight desire when it’s written all over the apples of your face. Maybe appearing at the wrong time, you can’t say a rosy face isn’t a sign of looking alive.

Now winter has come, and your skin looks drained and bland, even in the Middle East, dry and full of sand, a good blush can be your best friend and that step to make you look grand.

The multi-faceted makeup product is everyone’s current go-to for a natural flush, a cheekbone lift or even a sunkissed trick. Whether it arrives in cream, powder, or stick, the perfect blush is a major contender to your beauty routine.

Still, with so many blushes in the market, it can be difficult to find the right one for you.
