#CocoBeauty : To Blush Or Not To Blush


Most of us contour and highlight our cheekbones to perfection, but do we still take tender loving care of the actual apple of our cheeks?

House of Coco Beauty Writer, Rachel McAlley is a massive advocate of a flushed cheek, in fact a few years ago, when she worked as a waitress in an American diner, a Hollywood actress told her that the only makeup item she should ever need in life was a good strong blush! She lives by this rule and never leaves the house without a perfectly placed blush on the apple of her cheeks.

Roll on to today and the mahoosive choice of blushers on the high street, in designer collections, and online, is vast. We have put together a perfect list of just four of our faves, including an online purchase, a high street must-have, a designer lust-after, and an in-the-know super cool blush.
