Blush is one of the most important beauty steps for most fashionable women. The perfect highlighter can give our look a modern edge, and a killer brow game that beautifully frames our features, but nothing gives us a youthful glow like blush.
And just like most makeup items, every complexion has a shade of blush for itself. You may have heard that the right blush colour is the one that most closely resembles your natural flush, and while this is a good starting point, there’s, fortunately, a little more room for experimentation when it comes to blush colour.
Here’s how to pick the right formula and texture of blush for your complexion:
If you have a fair complexion, you probably have a neutral or pink-based undertone. Opt for blush with a cool tone like a blue-based pink or a more neutral color like a dusty rose.
Light complexions typically have a yellow-based or neutral undertone. Dusty peach and light coppery pink blush complement this skin tone.
Medium complexions tan easily, so you may want to change your blush depending on the season. Generally speaking, seek out warm shades like apricot and peach.
If you have a caramel complexion, your skin has yellow undertones and is warm. Orange-based and deep peach blushes will bring out the natural warmth in your skin.
Golden Dark Complexions
If you have a golden dark complexion, try bold, warm shades like brick, deep coral, and bronze. These will complement your yellow and warm undertones.
Deep complexions are dark with a cool or neutral tone. Blushes in sensuous berry shades best suit this complexion.
