I love the Clinique Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette. The color is really buildable, which I think is key for any good blush. For the color to look like a natural flush on the cheeks, you have to be able to buff the color in stages. This palette provides color, contour and highlighter shades in one compact so you can really build the color you want on the cheek. Or, if you are feeling lazy, just swirl all three shades on the apples of your cheeks to give a pretty, subtle glow. $32, clinique.com

I've been using Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for the last 10 years. Right now, I'm hooked on the Bronze palette. I take a large makeup brush and swipe it up and down the brick once, and then apply it to the apples of my cheeks, the same way you would apply regular blush. It gives my cheeks a radiant glow and brightens up my whole face. $44, bobbibrowncosmetics.com

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Charming is a silky blush that delivers just the right classic petal pink flush to complement any makeup look! The cream formulation is not only moisturizing to skin, but also gives a radiant flush that never looks colored or caked on. The multitasking product also includes nourishing minerals that help to plump and soften skin in addition to keeping it looking gorgeous. $35, tataharperskincare.com

My most beloved blush hands down is Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush, which I've been wearing for years. I love the shade variety (Natural Beauty and Dazzled are two of my favorites) and the staying power—it really does last the 12 hours that it claims, and maybe even longer! $26, tartecosmetics.com

It's so hard to pick one, but I'm loyal to Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Bronze. It's a pretty natural color that pairs beautifully with bronzer and highlighter. $45, chanel.com

Benefit Bella Bamba is an intense watermelon pink in the box, but when you apply it, it just gives you that "pop." $28, benefitcosmetics.com

I've been using Avon Be Blushed Cheek Color in Pink Melon for years. Unlike many of the powder blushes I've used before, this cream blush moisturizes while delivering a natural pink color that shows up perfectly on my dark skin. An added bonus? The stick is so easy to use—I can just swipe some on and go! $8, avon.com
