Blush is the unsung hero of my makeup bag. It can make everything better — in seconds. But the key to achieving these results is finding the right formula and applying it strategically so skin appears sun-kissed, not sunburned.
One, in particular, Beautaniq Beauty Lip & Cheek Balm in Peach Blush, practically does the work for you. The skin-care brand is known for its uncomplicated and effective products. Packed with nourishing oils — apricot, coconut, grapeseed, and pomegranate — the hydrating formula melted into my skin, immediately mimicking a natural flush. Using my fingers, I rubbed the lightweight balm along my cheekbones, blending the pigment outward to my hairline. The vibrant peach hue warmed up my fair skin as if I’d spent the day at the beach (without all of the UV exposure), and in just one step, my entire face looked awake and refreshed.
After seeing what it could do for my cheeks, I proceeded to swipe the luxe balm on my lips, too. The result? My lips, but better. While the dewy balm went on sheer, the formula was buildable to my desire. Besides that, the long list of moisturizing ingredients kept my lips soft, never sticky. And to round out this monochromatic makeup moment, I applied the tint across my eyelids for a simple, subtle wink of color.
No matter where you decide to wear it — eyes, lips, cheeks, or all of the above (which I recommend) — the result is the same: a fresh effect. And for those keeping track, that’s three makeup solutions, with just one powerful product. It’s an overachiever. It’s a multitasker. And it’s undoubtedly the new star of my makeup stash.
