Not many women give much thought to the blush they wear. Usually, they just buy whatever colour is offered, or available, regardless of whether it will complement their skin tone, or not. The purpose of a blush is to warm up your complexion, and for it to give you a youthful and fresh look. Let’s take a look at what shade fits perfect for various skin tones.
- Fair skin
For fair skin, a soft pink shade does perfectly. It gives a subtle flush to their face, adding a natural rosiness to their cheeks. However, this is ideal for those with a red or pink undertone. For those who have a yellow under tone, peach is a more ideal choice, because it will cancel out the paleness, and look natural.
- Medium Skin
For those medium, or slightly tan, skin tones, warmer blush colours are preferred. This includes apricot shades, which look soft, and fresh, mauve shades, for a little depth, and medium pink, for pale yet tan skin tones. These shades allow for a natural look, while shaping your cheekbones the way you want. In mineral makeup reviews, people usually complain about the colour not showing up, and it precisely because the shades you choose are too light for your tone.
- Dark Skin
For darker skins, highly pigmented colours are recommended, precisely for the fact that they can hold the pigment well. Darker or brighter shades are recommended because they give a subtle flush and serve their purpose.
