How to pick the right Blush shade


Like Foundations, Blushes can make or break your whole make up look. Too light can give wash out look or too much gives a clown like look. We don’t want either of those looks. So here are few tips to pick the right shade of the blush. You don’t have to break your head over the blushes. It is not as difficult as picking the foundation shade. Blushes are different from high lighters.

Again, for this you need to know your skin tone. Lets put this in 3 categories. 1. Fair, 2. Medium, 3. Dark. Once you got the skin tone , we will move onto the next step.

What texture or finish you looking for?

There are different forms of blushes.
Cream/mousse: Gives more natural finish, gets absorbed into the skin. Great for dry skin
Powder: These give matte finish. Though some blushes have shimmer in them, they just aids in giving a healthy glow. Great for combination to oily skin.
Cheek stains: These are in liquid form comes with the applicator/wand. Need to be little careful while blending, as it tends to dry soon.

The shades which are suitable for your skin tone

Fair : They can get away with any shade. Peach, light pinks looks good, though sometimes you need to 3-4 strokes to get that natural blush look

Medium: Most of the shades looks good. Peaches, soft corals, pinks.

Dark : Dark pinks, oranges looks good on you. Lighter shades will give you that washed out look so strictly stay away from bit can use medium subtle shades.
