Barbie fever is in full swing – and we couldn’t be happier. While it’s always a good idea to think pink, the recent release of the film means we have the perfect excuse to replenish and invest in the perfect pink blush.   

Dialling up our Barbie doll dewiness, Cult Concierge experts Sarah and Ryan share their best tips and trick on how to wear pink blush, along with the best pink blushers to boost a flushed and fresh finish. So, without further ado, it’s time to get acquainted with your new beauty best friend for today, tomorrow, and always… 



Adding a pop of pink to your cheeks, Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wands are primed to brighten, blur and blend. Providing powerful pigments, each digitally developed shade reveals a soft-focus finish and a oh-so natural glow.  

How to wear the pink blush: Follow Charlotte’s advice and use the easy-to-use cushion applicator to apply one dot for the day, two dots for a date and three dots for the disco onto the apples of your cheeks. 


Blurring the line between blushers and balms, Tower 28 Beauty's BeachPlease Luminous Tinted Balm in ‘Happy Hour’, blends beautifully to boost a sultry, sun-kissed flush. As bright as Barbie’s pink Corvette, the shade works hard to brighten up both your cheeks and lips. Designed with sensitive skin types in mind, the vegan formula is blended with a medley of plant-based ingredients (we’re talking green tea extract and aloe vera), to  comfort your complexion with each application.

Multi-tasking at its finest, Milk Makeup's Mini Lip + Cheek, is the perfect partner to pump up the pinkness when on-the-go.

Delivering a wondrous wash of colour with every swipe, Pat McGrath’s Skin Fetish: Divine Blush in ‘Lovestruck’ boosts buildable coverage, offering everything from a hint of pink to a bright flush. Plus, ultra-fine with a featherweight formula, this covetable compact completes your look with a demi-matte, satin sign-off no one can ignore.

A creamy pink juice for your lips, lids and cheeks, Westman Atelier’s Baby Cheeks Blush Stick levels up your look – even when you’re short on time. The ultimate triple threat, the three-in-one formula is infused with a (you guessed it) triple blend of ayurvedic oils that gently nourish while working to balance moisture levels. What’s more, there’s a rosy shade to suit every skin tone, thanks to its six colour ways.
