The pop of color your face is craving.

Believe it or not, there was a time in my life where I never wore blush. I breezed right by that makeup category without giving it a second thought. Finally, when a friend cornered me and applied some to my pale, lifeless cheeks, I understood. Blush doesn't have to look clown-y, or overdone, or any of those negative things I associated with it. A sweep of color will make your skin look healthier, more alive, and glowier than ever before. I get it—that bright pink pigment looks pretty intimidating in the pan. But trust me when I say that no look is complete without a kiss of color. It makes you look alive, and gives that extra oomph you've been missing. Whether you’re going for rosy and light or vampy and intense, these are our top drugstore blush picks. (PS. While you're at the drugstore, why not pick up a great bronzer or foundation?)
