When it comes to selecting the right color of your blush, there are still many women who are uncertain which color suits their skin tone. While there are no exact rules to follow in doing so, this simple guideline can help you do the trick.
Note your coloring. If you have lighter hair, you can go from pinkish to a bronze shade, but do refrain from a blush that’s got more brown on the upper and center of the bones of your cheeks. The brown shade can make shading on your cheek bones which is not what a blush is meant to do. Basically, it’s there to bring them out.
Experiment with the basics. Peaches, berry, pinks and rose serve as fantastic color bases and have an array of light to dark tones. Unleash your creative side and blend colors to find which suits you best.
If you have dry skin with heavy lines, it would be ideal to use a cream blush because powder might come to rest on the fine lines. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, go for the powder blush.
Avoid using the bronzer in replacement of a blush because its base is brown. If you wish to use one though, spread it over your entire face first, then apply your preferred blush color to your cheeks for the perfect natural finish.
For a shading outcome,you can make use of two colors. For a more defined cheek bone, apply a shade that’s a tad darker of a similar color base below the bones of your cheeks in the hollows of your cheeks. Do this lightly, making sure to mix upwards into a lighter shade that matches what you applied to your cheekbones.
Opt for a blush color that complements your lipstick to keep a naturally consistent look. If you happen to be wearing a really light lipstick, use a cheek stain as replacement as this creates a healthier and natural glow.
