Enhance Your Cheekbones With The #1 Blush For Low Maintenance Beauty Queens

Perfect for on-the-go lifestyles, blush sticks provide precise cheek color in sheer, matte, and velvety finishes. They enhance cheekbones with a simple swipe of color and a dewy glow. Many blush sticks are created with versatile formulas, letting us enjoy lip, cheek, and eye color all rolled into one convenient, multi-tasking product. Apply your favorite hue to your cheeks, a quick smudge on your lids, then fill in that pout for a monochrome look that is perfect for fall. Ideal for the low-maintenance chica, but great for everyone, blush sticks are essential to your makeup arsenal. Keep one blush stick in your cosmetics bag, one in your purse, and one at the office, for all-day options that will take you into the night. Dab on with fingertips for a subtler look, or go bold with buildable layers. Blush sticks are an easy way to experiment with contouring and highlighting, giving us formulas that absorb into the skin and leaving us with silky smooth color. Try one of these Top 10 blush sticks this season for a fool-proof and customizable look. Opening image: @julep
