Hot pink blush has always been my go-to blush color, simply because it’s a cheek hue that works with any eyeshadow or lip color, and it matches my natural flush very well. And it’s universally flattering for any skin tone, where it can be worn sheer for a hint of color, or applied heavier for a bright flush on darker skin tones.
Here are my top favorite hot pink blushes, varying in formula from cream to powder. Wear these year-round colors with some mascara and lip balm for a super quick and easy everyday face, or pair a hot pink blush with a smoky eye for the perfect nighttime look.
Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek in Very Charming
Very Charming is a go-to summer staple for the last few years, simply because of the ease of application (fingertips or stippling brush), and it’s no-shimmer pop of color. And it smells like raspberries if you want to double this as a lip color, too.
Physicians Formula Bombshell Blush in Brunettes
A super affordable and easily accessible in-store pressed powder blush, Physicians Formula in Brunette is a swipe-and-go product with a slight sheen (no strong shimmer or glitter). I consider this a half-natural product as it’s not the cleanest of ingredients (still being paraben-free though), but Physicians Formula as a brand in general, is a great “gateway green” company for those just getting into natural products.
Glo Minerals in Begonia
Another great pressed powder hot pink blush with slight shimmer. This can be built up to a very vibrant pink in the cheeks that’s great for tan or dark skin tones.
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Happy
As the name suggest, Kjaer Weis in Happy really is a happy hot pink blush, cream formula without shimmer. The Kjaer Weis blushes are great for oily or combination skin types or during hot and humid summer months, as its cream formulas dry down to a powder finish.
