Before you jump to defend yourself, you should know that we’re not talking about “wrong” as in “you look terrible” or “you’re not allowed to experiment with trendy shades.” By using the wrong blush, we simply mean choosing colors that aren’t as flattering to your complexion as others. So what shades DO complement your coloring? Here’s what The Beauty Department recommends.
If your skin tone is porcelain, as in really, really light, apricot blush is subtle enough to look natural. Try a shade like Youngblood – Luminous Creme Blush in Champagne Life.
If you could describe your complexion as ivory, try using a pale pink blush for a believable flush.
Beige gals would do well to choose amber blush – it’s kind of peachy, kind of pink.
Tawny ladies look luxurious in shades of rose, like bareMinerals – READY Blush The Confession.
Almond skin, which is dark with warm undertones, looks best with cool-toned blush, like fuchsia.
Got ebony coloring? Something vivid like tangerine orange works perfectly!
Of course, don’t be afraid to change it up every now and then if you’re trying to create a specific beauty look. Just stick to these shades if you’re aiming for a natural finish!
