It’s no secret that aging brings change. When it comes to skin, dryness, dark spots, and wrinkles become more apparent as time goes on. And for skin that seems to be losing its natural glow and looking on the dull side, a good blush can work wonders.

Today’s blush formulas are both blendable and buildable, so you can customize your look to be as natural looking or as bold as you want. When choosing a blush that works best on mature skin, though, you'll want to find one that is not only easy to apply but also offers skin-boosting ingredients. Blushes packed with ingredients like jojoba oil, antioxidants, and fatty acids help improve skin over time and provide a radiance and warmth that makes the skin look and feel alive. Such blushes are known to blend well and promise not to settle into fine lines and wrinkles or, worst of all, cake. Ahead, we’ve rounded up a definitive guide for the best blushes for mature skin that are easy to use, you'll wonder why it took you so long to discover them in the first place.
