Chances are, you chose your moisturizer based on what type of skin you have. You can't exactly slather on a rich, creamy product if you have oily skin – and dry skin needs a bit more TLC than what a moisturizer for normal skin can provide. But did you know that blush should be chosen the same way? There are certain formulas that work better for different skin types. Here's what you need to know, courtesy of Allure magazine.
If you have dry skin
Use a cream blush, like Paula Dorf – Cheek Color Cream. It will blend into your skin better than any other formula would, and since it's got moisture, your cheeks will get a bit of extra hydration. This brand is also fragrance free and hypoallergenic, so even sensitive skin can wear it.
If you have normal skin
Normal skin is a combination of dry and oily, depending on the day. A powder blush will do the trick because it will last longer than a cream, which can rub off and fade with a bit of oil. Try Jane Iredale – PurePressed Blush for a natural shade that complements your skin tone.
If you have oily skin
Powders can look cakey on oily skin, while creams tend to migrate. Use a gel blush instead, which will blend easily with your skin and give you long-lasting color. Pixi – Sheer Cheek Gel is sure to have a shade that will work for you.
