Wearing colorful, floral-inspired makeup (blushes included!) to bring in the spring isn’t a new concept.
In fact, we look for tons of different ways to dive into the beauty of the season after the chilly drabness of winter has us all maxed on the blue, cold vibes.
And what’s better than having a little springtime fun by painting our cheeks with soft pink, orange, and purple hues?
So let’s get into the warmth of the season with these 4 black girl-friendly blushes that embody everything we love about spring.
FENTY Fuego Blush Cream Blush, $22
This soft-tangerine cream blush from FENTY is the perfect option for those of you who are super worried about applying a little too much color on your cheeks.
The good thing about overapplying this little tin of sunshine is, well, you honestly can’t.
And that’s because it’s formulated to enhance your natural glow by melting directly into your skin.
Plus, it’s non-greasy and water-resistant, which means there’s no real need to worry about getting caught in those April showers.
Tower 28 Magic Hour Cheek Cream, $20
Blushes that can be used on both your lips and cheeks is a win-win for all of us who don’t really like to put too much time or effort into our beauty routine, so this super sunkissed BeachPlease cream tint from Tower 28 is nothing less than right on time.
It’s a versatile rosy shade blended with aloe vera and green tea extracts.
So not only does it steer clear from the dry, cakiness of traditional powder blush, but it hydrates and soothes your skin from the time you apply it to the time you wipe it away.
Milani Merlot Cheek Kiss Cream, $10
Whoever said red shades don’t work for black women is ‘a straight lie’ because this deep red burgundy cheek tint from Milani was made for brown skin.
It’s absolutely striking; and depending on how you wear it, it can be classy and sophisticated, or downright sexy!
Like all other high-quality cream blushes, harsh lines are a no-go here.
It gives you a seamless blend with a matte finish with just a few pats into the skin.
The best part?
It works with your skin tone and not against it, so don’t let the boldness intimidate you!
Also….Ulta is giving you a free gift when you make a purchase. So, if you’re still looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift (procrastinators, hello?), this is your chance!
Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff, $18
It’s not hard to look pretty in pink when Puff Cloud Paint by Glossier is around.
Reminiscent of pastel pink cotton candy, Puff is definitely one of those blushes that is impressively versatile.
It’ll play up an otherwise plain look and soften the ones that are a little harsh.
If some light, fresh daily makeup wear is your thing, you’re in luck!
Puff (like all other Glossier cloud paints) is magnificently sheer, lightweight, and more-than-natural enough to make a solid staple in your morning time beauty routines.
