The wedding season is here again and many of our readers are getting hitched. Getting their makeup done perfectly on this day is every woman’s dream. The makeup remains incomplete without a hint of colour on the cheeks. A blush adds some extra colour to the blushing bride and enhances her beauty and radiance. If you are planning to get married soon, this post is just for you. These blush shades are the best options for the brides. I have decided to add universally flattering shades to this list. Some are great for a daytime wedding while others look perfect for the reception night makeup. These blushes are more expensive compared to the regular ones available. But you cannot compromise with the finish and staying power on your special days. So, if you are a bride-to-be and planning to go out for makeup shopping soon, scroll down the list now!
If you want to be the red blushing bride, here is a beautiful choice for you from NYX. The shade Crimson is like a bright cherry red with orange undertones. It is a matte blush with staying power of 8 hours or more. If you are getting married in hot and humid Indian weather, you won’t be disappointed with this choice. It is super pigmented and the colour intensity is not affected when it is blended. If you apply this with care and keeping the rest of the makeup in mind, this can make you the show stopper!
This blush is a perfect combination of peach, coral and earthy brown. It adds a luminous glow to the skin without adding loads of glitters. It blends beautifully and shows up like crazy on the skin. The texture is smooth and buildable. It stays on the skin for 7-8 hours. It is not chalky and never highlights dry patches, so if you are a winter bride, you will love this formula.
This is a universally flattering colour from Mac. It is a beautiful rosy brown colour with a beautiful golden sheen to it. It gives a lovely healthy glow to the cheeks and blends in beautifully. Some other colours from Mac that you can try for wedding makeup are Raisin, Desert Rose, Fever, Gingerly and Prism. If you are looking for a blush that also acts as a contour shade, you can opt for Harmony.
This is a perfect berry red shade with loads of shimmer. The blush looks really intimidating in the pan but applied right, it adds a gorgeous flush of colour on your cheeks! This is a shade which can be worn by all skin tones. It is amazingly pigmented and blends in a silky, smooth finish. It adds loads of warmth and a glow to the skin. It stays on for 7 hours on oily skin tone which is really impressive.
If you want a break from the regular powder blushes, this cream blush won’t disappoint you at all. You can definitely buy it for your bridal makeup as it won’t fail in any way. It is a peachy coral blush that adds a beautiful, natural glow to the cheeks. It is perfect for daytime weddings. The colour can be layered up without it being cakey and muddy. You can also use this as a base for your powder blush. The product looks very sophisticated and luxurious and you will love having it in your wedding trousseau.
Here is another cream blush from YSL that can be used alone for the natural bridal glow or used to intensify your favourite powder blush. It is soft and blends easily, giving a cream to powder finish. It never feels dry or greasy and can be used for every skin tone. The colour is buildable and thus you cannot go overboard with it. It never looks uneven and the glow looks perfectly natural.
If you are a big fan of a pinky glow, this is the shade that you would love! It is a matte, cool-toned, reddish pink that looks good on every skin tone. It has great pigmentation and the intensity can be built up from barely there to dramatic. Thus you can wear it for day or night. Even though it has a creamy formula, it never looks cakey or never highlights the pores. It stays on for 7 hours or more on extremely oily skin which makes it a great choice for wedding nights.
If you want a berry red shade for your wedding makeup for the elegant, bridal look, pick this one from Bobbi Brown. It is a unique brownish, red shade that looks great on all skin-tone. Bobbi Brown blushes are buildable and highly blendable, but since these are insanely pigmented, you need a very light dab of blushes in the pan. It is silky and smooth and never highlights any imperfection. It lasts for nearly 10 hours and won’t lose the bridal glow ever with this one.
The beauty world is going crazy about this range this year and I picked this shade for the would-be brides. This is a muted strawberry red shade that compliments heavy eye makeup. It never looks flat on the sin even though there is no shimmer in it. It gives the much-needed healthy glow from within to the skin. It blends effortlessly without being patchy or chalky. It has great pigmentation too. If you are looking for something that will look sophisticated and natural, this is a great choice.
10. Nars Taj Mahal Blush:
The best one comes is here at last. It gives your cheeks a warm, golden orange, sun-kissed look that suits any skin tone and especially the Indian brides. The smoothness, texture, colour-intensity- everything is perfect about this blush. You can apply it with a fan brush to prevent going overboard. If you want to look like a queen on your wedding day, this is the perfect partner for you. You will also find a dupe of this product with Inglot Freedom System Face Blush 45.
I also wanted to add a little secret to you all. You can add a golden highlighter like Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Trophy Wife or a copper blush like the Kryolan Blusher Refill Copper. You can mix these shades with any blush of your choice to add some shimmer to it. These blushes are great for brides as well as anyone attending wedding functions. Apply any of these and you will definitely look picture perfect!
