Blusher is a must-have in any make-up routine. Even if you're a bronzer gal, a complexion isn't complete without a hint of gel, cream or powder formula to brighten it up. We've picked the 10 best blushers...

Blusher is a must-have in any make-up routine. Even if you're a bronzer lover, a complexion isn't complete without a hint of gel, cream or powder formula to brighten it up and give it a youthful glow. 

There are a whole host of new formulas to choose from as the beauty industry has got this classic product truly sorted - which isn't too surprising when you think it's been around for centuries. Now big brands have got their powders down, they're creating new creams, sticks and gels which compete with the classics, and all so you can choose which texture and application will suit you, your skin and your life.

First up, if you've got a fair or medium complexion, go for a rose or peach-toned blush. More orangey tones and deep berries will complement a darker complexion.  

If you're a fan of a matte complexion, a powder is the right blusher for you. Apply all your other make-up before starting, then sweep a dusting of powder across the apples of your cheeks and up the cheekbones - like a genuine blush. Don't overdo it though; it's always easier to build up than tone down. 

Wondering which blush will suit your skin tone? This quiz will match you to the perfect blusher for you...

If you like a dewy complexion, as seen on the SS15 catwalks, a gel or cream blusher will suit your routine. Dap your finger tips into the pot and blend naturally from the apples and fade out across the cheekbones. 

There's all different applicators, too. Powders are often in clever compacts which are harder than ever to smash - we're loving Smashbox's twisting pot which releases the blusher - and the creams can be applies almost everywhere; perfect for on-the-go make-up touch-ups.
