Beauty | Blush Tones for Spring
You know that perfectly rosy and romantic flush that Keira Knightley has as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice? That's the look I am constantly trying to achieve with my beauty routine. The key to that look? Blush. I've tested more shades of blush than I am willing to admit, and have so far narrowed down two or three that give me that "just ran through a meadow of flowers on a warm summer day," natural flush that I'm desperately trying to replicate.
I asked the shop gals to share what their favorite blushes are for spring and they delivered with a few beautiful recommendations that I cannot wait to try!
Read on to see which blushes the EG shop gals love and will be using this spring.

"I love any product that has "multi-use" in the description, making my beauty routine as simple and seamless as possible. RMS Lip2Cheek in Spell gives me the perfect rosy glow and will continue to be my go-to blush for spring and summer"
"Ilia Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip in Tenderly is the perfect shade of washed pink. I love to swipe it on my cheeks and lips, and will sometimes dab the smallest amount on my eyelids as well. I typically tend to reach for warmer rose shades, but I just love how romantic a touch of soft pink looks brushed on the apples of your cheeks and across the bridge of your nose."
"I've been hooked on Saie beauty ever since I was introduced to this clean beauty brand a few months ago. I use Slip Tint Dewy Tinted Moisturizer daily, and recently decided to give their Dew Blush Liquid Cheek Blush a try. Oh how I love this blush; it truly is dewy and I love the natural flush it gives my cheeks. I am currently using Rosy, which is a warm rose shade, and I love the consistency and finish of this liquid blush so much that I'm already planning to purchase the shade Peachy for summer"

"I love Tata Harper skincare products so I decided to try some of their makeup offerings also. Tata Harper's Vitamin Infused Cream Blush gives a subtle tint to your cheeks and is buildable so you can go as light or heavy as you'd like. I also love how the formula for this blush works to fight fine lines while also giving me a natural flush and healthy glow. "
"I know cream blushes are all the rage right now, but I am still rather loyal to my powder blushes. Laura Mercier in Passionfruit has been my favorite spring shade for a few years and I know i'll continue to use it for years to come!"
"I've been slowly transitioning my beauty products to clean beauty brands and it's been fun testing and narrowing down my favorites. Ilia is definitely at the top of my list right now and their Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment is my new can't live without beauty product."
"Benefit Cosmetics was one of the first beauty brands I experimented with as a teenager and years later I am still loyal to one their cult-favorite products. I always keep a Benefit Cosmetics blush in Dandelion in my makeup bag. It's the prettiest shade of ballerina-pink and has the subtlest hint of shimmer which makes it perfect for daily wear ."
I'm a huge fan of Merit beauty products and have three different shades of the Flush Balm Cream Blush. It's my go-to product every morning!
I recently splurged on Gucci's Luminous Matte Beauty Blush in the prettiest shade of rose pink. The shade Silky Rose gives me that subtle, natural flush that I love.
