How To Choose The Perfect Blush For Your Skin Tone



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.

If you want to see more, continue reading. 🙂

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.

Product picks: True Match Naturale Blush in Soft RoseNars Cream Blush in Enchanted.

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.

Product picks: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Powder Pink, Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Spiced CiderMaybelline Fit Me Blush in Medium Mauve.

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.

Product picks: YSL Crème De Blush in Bright Coral, Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Red, Lancôme Blush Subtil in Rouge Glow.

I hope you enjoyed reading this. Tell me in the comments what is your favorite blush! 🙂

Have a nice day❤

Love, Dajana.
