Blusher for a beginner on a budget?

Can anyone recommend a blusher please that I would be able to get in Boots or Superdrug please?

Also (and sorry for the stupid question) are they ok over a bb cream?

Bourjois do nice cream blushers that you apply with your fingertips.

My favourite all time non-designer blusher is Bourjois Rose Ambre blusher.

It's gorgeous..matte and very beautiful natural colour. You will find that it lasts for a long time too as you only need a little at a time. It's gives you that beautiful natural rosy look.

You can wear it over a bb cream.

Ooh x-post!

This one isn't cream blusher's a powder.

I like the MUa cream blusher perfection in "blossom". It's £1 from Superdrug. No idea re BB.

I use the same, Bourjois Rose Ambre, have never used anything different, it is the perfect blusher.

I was going to say bourjois little round pots. They're lovely and the teeny tiny brush that comes with them means you can take them out with you if you need a little mid day boost.

Max Factor in murano (if you are olive skinned)

Thanks everyone, will look at the Bourjois smile.

Natural collection in Boots are fantastic especially peach melba and you can buy 3 for £5.

Just had a look online, there are so many shades! How do you decide which is best for your skin tone? Is it just a case of trial and error? I have fairly pale skin and wear Botanics bb cream in medium.

You can't go wrong with Rose Ambre.

Just use it sparingly and apply more if needed.

A peachy colour is always said to suit most skin tones.

Thanks toofattorun and cocolepew.

Toofattorun Wed 19-Feb-14 17:33:15

You're very welcome

Peach good especially if you have any pink in your skin.

And if you can afford it buy a big brush.

Or even a brighter orange rather than peach if you have pink skin

Went into town to get the Rose Ambre and could not find it anywhere.


Looks like I can order it online though.
