$29, Bobbi Brown
In 1991, the eponymous makeup-artist renowned for her light touch almost single-handedly convinced women everywhere that less is more (and makes you look younger) with her debut collection of 10 universally flattering lipsticks. Fast forward a couple of decades and Bobbi Brown’s natural-looking line of cosmetics has grown to include all the pretty necessities, including blush. We adore the silky-smooth formulation and bright fresh colour of her Apricot-hued version—it has a subtle matte finish that lasts all day long. And when we really want to look like Bobbi Brown herself has done the honours, we simply follow her rules of application: apply the blush on the apples of our cheeks, then blend it up into our hairline before dragging it slightly downwards to soften the look. No matter your skin tone or complexion, you’ll always find your perfect go-to shade at this makeup counter.
