What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Tira’s editors give you the low down on their fave blush picks

If you asked us to pick a favourite makeup product from all that exist, we probably couldn’t give you a single answer. But we will say, a blush makes it to our top 3. Who doesn't love a bright, natural looking flush? Plus, the versatility of the makeup product is unrivalled—just the placement alone can change your whole look. Wear it on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow, place it higher up, sweeping it towards your temple on either side for a lifted look, or get that effortless sun kissed look by dabbing some over the bridge of your nose. Wear it in corals, pinks, browns or reds, there’s so much fun you can have with it! Take a cue from our own beauty editors as they talk about their go-to blushes and how they like to wear it below.

Priyanka Ghura

My go-to blush: Benefit Cosmetics Love Tint

Why I love it: This is the blush that I reach for the most. I love the sheer, natural-finish and the fact that it is very buildable - I can use it for a no-makeup-makeup look or even for when I feel like going a bit extra. Plus, I love double-duty products, I use this on my lips as well- it can go on as a rosy pink or be built up to a fiery red, pretty awesome right? 

My application technique: It's a liquid blush so I dot on 1-2 drops on my cheek bones and blend, blend, blend with my fingers. I follow a ‘W’ placement, starting from my templs and sweeping it across my cheeks as well as the bridge of my nose.

My favourite look to create with it: This blush is very much a part of my daily 5-minute makeup routine as well as any elaborate look I go for, basically it's great for any occasion. I love blotting and blurring a few drops on my lips as well for a monochromatic rosy look. \

My go-to blush: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blush

Why I love it: I love fresh, dewy makeup! And this pigmented, long-lasting formula gives me the most natural looking flush. A bonus is that it is super hydrating and easy to use. There are quite a few shades to choose from, but my personal favourite is South Bound. The gorgeous peach shade comes on sheer but is buildable and perfect for when I want that sun-kissed glow.

My application technique: I squeeze out the creamy formula onto the back of my hand to warm up the product. Then I use my fingers to work it into the apples of my cheeks, building up the intensity of the colour as I need.

My favourite look to create with it: For me, this blush is perfect for everyday wear, the travel friendly tube makes it super convenient for on-the-go makeup and the pop of colour instantly brightens up my face.

My go to blush: Ilana Dream Blush Cheek Lip Tint - Coral Peach
Why I love it: Blushes are my holy grail makeup product, and this one from Ilana has been on my most-loved list for a really long time. This blush has a creamy formulation which glides onto the skin like butter. It is buildable in nature and has a good colour pay-off. 

My application technique: I dot the blush on the apples of my cheeks and blend it in an upward direction. 

My go-to look to create with it: A sun-kissed, clean girl look is my go-to with this blush. I use it daily on my bare face for a healthy, flushed appearance.

Avanti Dalal

My go-to blush: Lancome Subtil Powder Blush in Blushing Tresor

Why I love it: I like looking like I've just gotten back from a long run in the winter cold—naturally flushed and a little shiny. This silky, light-as-air powder blush does just that: it drapes my cheeks in a long-wearing, radiant pink that melts into the skin for a lit-from-within effect. 

My application technique: I swirl a fluffy blush brush into the pan to coat all the bristles. After tapping off the excess, I apply it to the apples of the cheeks and upwards toward the temples. Sometimes, when I want the look to be a lot more dramatic, I apply a cream blush first, so it melts into my skin, and then set it with this powder blush for a just-won't-budge finish. 

My favourite look to create with it: This serves as the perfect highlighter + blush 2-in-1 because it has a little shimmer built-in. I love using it for post-work drinks, because a few swipes of it can seriously wake up my face. I tap a little onto the bridge of my nose too, to fully tie the whole look together.

My go to blush: Huda Beauty Cheeky Tint Blush Stick - Proud Pink

Why I love it: This stick blush has the most gorgeous, blendable formula and leaves this radiant, sheer flush of pink on your cheeks that does not smudge or fade for hours!

My application technique: I swipe the stick directly onto the apples of my cheeks, extending diagonally towards my temples to create that lifted appearance. Next, I blend in lightly with my fingers for a seamless look.

My favourite look to create with it: I love a gorgeous pop of pink on my cheeks with voluminous, fluttery lashes and a glossy cherry pout.
