If you're on the hunt for a new mineral blush, you've come to the right place: ahead, you'll find six of the most gorgeous, mineral-based formulas out there, and they're all made with good-for-skin ingredients (in addition to actual minerals), like plant-derived oils and antioxidant-rich vitamins. The best mineral blush for you, though, will depend on a few practical things, like your skin tone, budget, and preferred blush type (i.e. pressed powder, loose powder, or cream). So, take your pick from under-$10 drugstore finds to luxurious, creamy blushes in rich, bold colors.
But first, a few tips: Since a lot of people who use mineral makeup do so out of having sensitive skin, there are some other things you can do to prevent irritation or breakouts when applying blush. Most importantly, use a clean makeup sponge or brush; wash your brushes frequently — you can find an in-depth guide on how to wash your makeup brushes here — or, if you're applying blush with your hands, make sure they're clean as well. Finally, toss your blush after one or two years (one year for creams and two years for powders), since old cosmetics can harbor bacteria.
