Choose The Right Blush For Your Skin Tone Once And For All!

Right Blush-Skin Tone

We know you’re probably thinking that when it comes to your makeup routine any kind of blush would do. Emphasis has been on bold lips and eyes for the past few seasons but this will most likely change now. You may have seen those bold cheeked runway looks around…well this is your biggest indicator of the shape of things to come. So take a look at your makeup cabinet and sort out your bushes because there is a very big chance that you have been using the wrong shades all along. Blush essentially should mimic the color of your cheeks when you have a natural flush so read below to determine the blush color that best matches your skin tone.
