For an intensified cheek colour to really brighten up your face, a bright pink blush is the one for you. With this shade, you can opt for a light (but bright) coverage or build it up for an intense blush. It all depends on your mood and they way you handle the brush.

Peach blushes are also shades that you can use for that "no makeup" makeup look, but with a touch of summer glow. Its coral undertone complements the apples of your cheeks and works best with a neutral palette. You can even play around with shimmery golds, metallic bronzes, and bold browns to contrast everything.
