Right Blush Color For You,Which Shade of Blush Is Right for You?

Many women tend to be unsure of what color blush to use for their skin tone, but its really not that hard. Here are a few simple steps to picking and applying the right color blush for your skin tone.
  • Work with your coloring. People with lighthair tend to look better with a slightly ruddier color. But, avoid colors with too much brown on the upper and middle of your cheek bones. Brown shades on the cheek bones create shading. This is the opposite of what you want the blush to do. You want your blush to highlight and bring out your cheek bones.

  • Try the basics. Pinks, peaches, rose and berry are all great base colors and they come in a variety of tones, from light to deep. Play with the colors you like from these categories. It’s alright to mix and match blush colors. It’s about finding the right color for you, and not everyone finds their perfect color pre-made.

  • Opt for a cream blush if your skin is dry or heavily lined. Powder can settle into fine lines. For oily skin, stick with the powder blush.

  • Try not to use your bronzer as a blush. Bronzers tend to have a brown base. If you use a bronzer, apply it all over the face before you apply your blush. Then add your blush color to the cheeks for a more natural finish.

  • Use two colors if you want a shading effect. For more definition to your cheek bones, apply a slightly darker shade of the same color base under your cheek bones, in the hollows of your cheeks. Use a light hand and be sure to blend upwards into a light matching shade applied to your cheek bones.

  • Choose a shade that compliments your lipstick. This helps keep your look more uniform and natural. If you’re wearing very light lipstick of a clear gloss, try a cheek stain instead of traditional blush. Cheek stain will give a natural healthy glow.

When applying the blush, there are ways to apply that fit your face shape. There are also blush brushes, shaped specifically for the shape of your face to help you apply the blush as well.
So ladies with these simple steps don’t be afraid to try a blush, and a little color never hurt Dolls!
