As one of the top makeup artists in the beauty industry, Bobbi Brown is the ultimate source for product recommendations, especially ones that stand the test of time. After all, the 65-year-old has decades of experience under her makeup bag, and she can’t deny that she has a few favorite products that are always in her arsenal. The product she has had on hand since she was a child? To blush.
Brown’s favorite blush comes from her Jones Road Beauty brand, of course, which debuted The Best Blush earlier this week. She loves two shades in particular. “I really like Sandy,” she said Prevention. And another upcoming shade that she loves is Pop. “But I also wear the Pop because I can wear it over bronzer. But I like one or the other,” she adds.
In the past, she’s touted her favorite root touch-up stick for grays, her top makeup tip for women over 45, and more. But blush is something Brown has been experimenting with since she was young, and it’s a product she will always turn to, she says.
“I’ve loved blusher since I was a kid. I loved his appearance. And then, when I became a makeup artist, it was kind of my signature, the pink blush in particular,” says Brown. Prevention.
She adds that on days when she doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, you can still find her wearing blush. This is this essential to its general appearance. Plus, who doesn’t want a rosy glow?
But what makes The Best Blush so great? Besides coming from the mind of an industry veteran, its use of squalane, a powerful ingredient that helps moisturize the skin, makes it a must-have. “Squalane hydrates with a lighter texture, so it absorbs quickly and doesn’t make skin look too greasy,” Debra Jaliman, MD, board-certified dermatologist in New York and author of skin rulespreviously said Prevention.
The Best Blush comes in five shades that work on all skin tones and can even be layered to achieve the shade you’re looking for. Jones Road Beauty calls it a sheer, buildable powder formula with a sheer base that allows for easy application, blending, and layering.
As for how to find your perfect shade, Brown has a tip for that. “When you pinch your cheek, that’s the color it takes on. You go more pastel the lighter you are, and you go deeper on darker skin,” she says Prevention.
And applying it is so simple. “The way to apply it is to smile,” she says, then apply it to the apple of your cheek. As for which brush to use for application, Jones Road Beauty has a Blush brush, but your fingers work too, in a pinch.
