A direct result of make-up artist Daniel Sandler’s industry expertise, they last for hours on the skin, while offering up a radiant glow that’s beautiful for daytime, or they can be amped up for a more full-on evening look, too.

Iconic London Sheer Blush, £18

Best For: A Wet-Look Finish

Why We Love It: One of our favourite launches of last year, these sheer blushers have a gel-like consistency that melts into skin for a dewy finish. Providing a healthy flush of colour, they’re easy to build and mix together. Sweep them onto lids and lips for something a bit different. Available at Boots.com

NARS Liquid Blush in ‘Orgasm’, £21.25

Best For: A Healthy Colour

Why We Love It: There’s a reason NARS’ Orgasm blush is a cult classic: it’s incredibly flattering and instantly livens up a dull complexion. Just one pump of this liquid formula delivers a youthful colour that goes the distance and never settles into any creases. You can also choose from both matte and shimmer textures, depending on your preference. Extra points go to the added monoi and tamanu oils, both of which nourish and hydrate the skin, while also allowing for a seamless blend. For more of a natural finish, apply it with your fingertips, or buff into the apples of your cheeks with a kabuki brush to sculpt and shape your face.  Available at LookFantastic.com

Best For: Those On A Budget

Why We Love It: Revolution are here to prove ou don’t have to shell out to find a great liquid blush. This dewy formula is seriously hydrating, while the texture has a satin finish that stays put. It’s easy to blend and layer, too – so you don’t have to worry about over-applying. Ideal on days where you want just a hint of something, but don’t want to go overboard or look too theatrical. Available at RevolutionBeauty.com

Glossier Cloud Paints, £15

Best For: Suits-All ShadesWhy We Love Them: It wouldn’t be a liquid blusher round-up with thes cult paints. The pigmented blushers are seriously hyped – but for good reason. They’re easy enough to tap on with fingers, but it’s the sheer texture we’re obsessed with. Once applied, they sink in instantly, leaving behind a plumped, dewy sheen before you’ve even reached for the highlighter. Available in six suits-all shades, they also blend together beautifully. Available at Glossier.com

Natasha Denona Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum, £24

Best For: Skincare Benefits

Why We Love It: This new liquid blush serum is a must-try for all skin types. It’s thin texture is easy to work with – whether you want to layer it up for richer pigment, or sheer it out for more of a subtle, healthy flush. The hydrating formula offers thirsty skin instant relief, too – it never leaves you feeling tight or dry, thanks to nourishing ingredients like glycerin. Even so, you’ll find it stays on the skin for hours with a satin-y dry down you’ll love. There are only three shades available, but each one is flattering on all skin tones. We love ‘Darya’ for a fresh pink-y coral, while ‘Bloom’ is a beautiful berry tone for those with darker complexions.    Available at CultBeauty.co.uk

KVD Beauty ModCon Liquid Gel Blush, £22

Best For: Creating Luminosity 

Why We Love It: One of our favourite finds of 2021, this blush is almost watery, helping it melt onto skin with a rich colour. As you start to buff it in – we recommend doing so with a brush – you’ll see the texture starts to sheer out, turning the colour into more of a fresh wash. We love the glossy dry down most – it’s luminous, pretty and easy to use. You can even tap it onto the highest points of your face for some subtle sculpting.
