Patterned Blush Palettes So Pretty, You Almost Don't Want to Use Them
If it weren't for the gorgeous glow these mini works of art created on our skin, we'd probably have them hanging on our wall instead of stashed away in our makeup bags. Patterned blushes boast more than just a pretty face---depending on where you concentrate your brush, you can pick up different tones to contour areas of your face, and highlight others using one streamlined pan. We're obsessed with the Burberry S/S 15 Runway Palette ($68; burberry.com), which mirrors the hand-painted vibe and airy petal tones seen on the runway, and the Philip Treacy's Art Deco-themed Highlight Powder for MAC ($32; maccosmetics.com). True to the designer's elegant aesthetic, the soft pink gets a high definition finish, thanks to the jolt of subtle pewter shimmer that creates a natural dewy appearance.
Enviable apricot flush aside, Dior's Glowing Color Cannage Palette ($65; nordstrom.com) also gives a nod to the the label's heritage with the trademark woven pattern in three shades of matte and sparkly coral tones. If your complexion is in need of some extra hydration, you'll love the nourishing ingredients mixed into Tarte's Colored Clay Bronzer Blush ($30; sephora.com) and the Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush ($13; ulta.com). Tarte's blush has purple and gold clays baked into the design to give your complexion a shot of moisture, while the Physicians Formula mosaic is infused with a generous amount of argan oil.
