Hey my loves!
Today I have another ”how to choose” blog post! Last time I did How to Choose The Perfect Highlighter For Your Skin Tone and How To Choose The Right Foundation Color. You all seem to like it, so I’ve decided to do another ”how to choose” post, but today is all about blushes.

The trick to pulling off blush the right way? Finding the right blush color for your skin tone. When you apply the wrong rouge your makeup instantly enters the clown zone. But the right color to accent your skin tone will make your Friday night makeup, and just about everything else in life, that much better.
Fair Skin Tone
Fair skinned beauties, don’t get carried away; a soft pink, peach or light coral will enhance your porcelain skin just right. The key is light application. Too much product, or the use of saturated hues, will create a harsh finish reminiscent of Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Avoid a stage makeup faux pas when you select the right formula of blush for a natural, flushed cheek finish.
Medium Skin Tone
Similar to your fair skinned friends, pinks and peaches are your best bet. You’ll want to take these colors a step further by applying a deeper shade of each. A rich pink, and even certain shades of mauve, will leave you with a dramatic edge–especially when you apply blush on all the right spots. Bonus tip, stray away from blush colors that have a bluish undertone–if your skin tone isn’t right on point, you’ll be left with what looks like slightly bruised cheeks.
Dark Skin Tone
Deep shades of red, orange and brown are the ideal blush colors for those with dark skin. These colors, unlike light powder pinks, will leave you looking radiant instead of washed out. Try a fuchsia (think dark radiant orchid) if your skin tone tends to be warmer; a bold tangerine if it is cooler. By targeting the apples of your cheeks with a vibrant swipe of one of these shades you’ll be left with a daring effect.
I hope you enjoyed reading this. Tell me in the comments what is your favorite blush! 🙂
Have a nice day
