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.
1 || Fair Skin + Dark Features
When you have pale skin and dark eyes and hair, you will need to brighten things up. A peachy-pink shade like the universal NARS Orgasm will do wonders. You can also afford to deepen the shade by using the one from Hourglass below.
2 || Fair to Medium With Brown Hair
If you are fair to medium with brown hair just like Alexa Chung then consider yourself blessed; most tones look great on you. Experiment to your heart’s desire.
3 || Fair to Medium With Red Hair
Isla Fisher is blessed with natural red hair and red haired beauties should concentrate on wearing a range of pinks and peaches but steer clear of coral.
4 || Fair With Red Undertones
If you have pale skin with red undertones just like Amanda Seyfried, aim to use cool pink blushes and avoid warm colors that can infuse your red undertones with an exaggerated flush.
5 || Fair With Gold Undertone
Golden beauties like Blake Lively should opt for purplish pinks and peachy pink blushes.
6 || Golden With Peachy Undertones
Golden peachy colouring like Chrissy Teigen’s can benefit from NARS Orgasm or something more rosy.
If you have beige undertones then you will need pink shades to counteract it.
8 || Olive
Most Arabs fall between olive and beige undertones, so if you think your coloring is close to Eva Mendes then you will need to do two things. You must define your cheeks with a bronzer and then use peachy toned blushes with red undertones.
9 || Dark With Golden Undertones
Dark skinned beauties with golden undertones can also benefit from peachy-pink blushes, but they can take it up to hot pink easily.
10 || Dark With Warm Undertones
Women with complexions as deep as Mindy Kaling are just like Alexa Chung in the sense that they can pull off any tone. Hot coral, warm red, rich brown, and purple all work. To deliver a good dose of pigment start with a stain blush and layer with powder.
11 || Deep With Natural Undertones
Deeply dark skin tones require a super pigmented cream blush.
