Purple blush is going to be big for Spring/Summer 2022. The best purple blushes for 2022 are from brands such as Nudestix, Fenty Beauty, Rare Beauty and Em Cosmetics and other makeup brands that are known for being innovative.
Purple blush looks good on most people it just depends on what shade you end up choosing. Purple blush also looks really great in the form of cream blush.
Purple blush is flattering on all skin tones but it just depends on what tone of the blush you pick up. Darker shades of purple live in the plum range while lighter shades of purple live in the lavender range. You also need to match your undertone whether it be cool, warm or neutral to match the shade that each of the purple blush tones come in.
This article for the best purple blushes for 2022 will go through a variety of purple blush shades and finishes so you can choose which ones work better for you.
Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze in Moodie Blu
The Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze in the shade Moodie Blu is a cool toned eggplant shade. If you have cool toned skin this is going to look great on you. It is more of a plum colour so it is a better shade for the Fall but also in early spring.
If you want an easy way to wear a cool toned purple blush shade this one is a perfect option for a cream based blush. You can also wear for the best traffic exchange this on the eyes and lips too so that’s the beauty of cream blushes.
Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Drama Cla$$
The Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Drama Cla$$ is a soft violet shade. Don’t let this shade shock you too much because it looks very dramatic in the packaging. In fact, this purple blush shade melts into the skin creating a flushed look so it is very subtle. If you want it to be more dramatic you can build it up but it works really well for a hint of colour too.
This is a bit more on the cool toned side but can be warmed up if you mix it with another cream blush shade in the pink tones. If your skin is cool toned you’ll definitely want to try this purple cream blush for the spring.
The reviews on the Fenty Cream Blush are excellent and have garnered a 4 out of 5 stars. The reviews say that the formula of the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush is very pretty and natural looking but also wears really well throughout the day. This is one of the best cream blushes on the market right now so if you’re looking for a cream blush you should definitely check out these ones from Fenty.

Em Cosmetics Colour Drops Serum Blush in Little Lilac
The Colour Drops Serum Blush from Em Cosmetics is SO good! This is the first product I purchased from Em Cosmetics and I am in love with the formula and colour pay off.
I chose the shade Little Lilac because I wanted a sheer and even dewy look that was focused purely on a wash of purple or lilac shade.
All you need is to use a half of a drop of the Serum Blush for each cheek which means you need one drop of the blush for a full face. I found the Little Lilac shade to be a bit light on colour so I added another half of a drop on either cheek. You can apply the dropper directly onto your cheeks or you can apply a bit on your hands and then apply to the cheeks.
Since this is a serum blush, there are some amazing skin nourishing ingredients included such as: Vitamin E, Hylauronic Acid and Sacha Inchi Oil which is very hydrating and perfect for a natural dewy glow.
I’ll do a fuller review of Em Cosmetics in another post so be sure to watch out for that but if you’re looking for the best lavender blush shade the Colour Drops Serum Blush in Little Lilac is the best colour for a dewy glow.
