Four of the best blushers for that perfect post-summer glow

For a natural warm glow, try Benefit's Gold Rush (HK$290/US$37). The golden-nectar shade adds a bit of colour to your skin without being over-the-top. The blush comes with a flat, rounded brush, apt for various applications, whether you want to sweep it across your whole cheek or only the cheekbone.

3CE's Take a Layer Multi Pot (HK$189) can be used as a blush, a lipstick or even an eyeshadow. Its creamy texture and matte effect make it incredibly long-wearing. Thanks to its buildable intensity, you can spread it thinly on your cheeks for a subtle glow, blend it onto your lips to create a gradient Korean lip or dab it on your lids to make your eyes pop.

Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette (HK$430) contains four shimmery shades " pink, white, gold and taupe. The colours are not as pigmented as we'd like, so it works better as a highlighter. Rather than a fine sheen, it contains tiny specks of glitter that will make your face sparkle.

Charlotte Tilbury's Pretty Youth Glow Filter (HK$363) comes with the ergonomically designed Cheek Hug brush. Sweep it across the case, and it will pick up both products " the blush and highlighter " in one go. It contains silica, so it's easily blendable for a softer look.
