The Right Blush for You
The Right Blush for Your Skin
When it comes to blush, most women I know fall into two camps: they either can't live without it, or they shy away from it because they worry they'll look clown-like. I think everyone looks better with blush. It's the easiest way to look pretty, healthy, and radiant.
Picking the perfect shade of blush isn't rocket science. The right color should work with your complexion and look like your cheeks when you exercise or blush. If you have to work hard to blend your blush, the color is too dark or too bright.
Here are general shade guidelines:
Extra light/Porcelain skin: Pale pink or pastel apricot. Skip bronzer or brown-toned bush -- it will look dirty on your white skin.
Fair skin: Sandy pink tones.
Medium skin: Tawny brownish pinks.
Dark/Tan skin: Deeper brownish rose, plum, golden brown.
Deep skin: Dark or deep bronze or deep red -- if skin is very dark.
