Beauty Guide : Blushes For Different Skin Tones

by - 11:00 AM

Hello Dolls and Gents, 

Hope everyone is having  great week so far. Today , I wanted to discuss blushes because I don't own any blushes and I found that when beginning in makeup, you do all your research and try out so many products that may or may not work for your skin tone. It really comes from us watching our favourite YouTubers and trying to use the same colour blush on ourselves, but we find that is does not appear on our skin, look ashy or clownish. 

WARNING: For my Canadian readers, some of these products are not all available in Canada, but you can order them from:
ikatehouse (NYX) (NYX, CoverGirl, Ulta and Jane Cosmetics) 

In my previous post, I discussed the proper application of blush for each face shape. Now that we know our face shape and how to apply blush to our face shape. Now we have look at how to choose the right blush colour for our skin tone. Also, we are going to look the the right blush formula for your skin type. 

This is for those ladies and gents who easily get sunburned to light skinned. Your path for blush is always a subtle colour, not clownish. Always stick to lighter shade, because it will bring your look together create subtle flush of colour. 

For porcelain skin with warm undertones,go for a blush with a peach undertone.

NYX Powder Blush in Peach

For ivory skin with cool  undertones, go for cool soft pink
Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion
Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Light Pink 

For all my medium skin tone ladies and gents, I would tell you to stay far away from blushes that are either too light or too dark.

Medium skin with yellow or olive undertone, go for deep peach/soft coral blush

Ulta Extreme Wear Matte Finish Blush in Peach Glow
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blissful

Medium skin with cool undertone, go for a rosy pink blush
NARS Powder Blush in Outlaw
Jane Cosmetics Multi-Coloured Cheek Powder in Pink Bouquet 

If you are between medium and dark, you would be "light dark skin", go for a blush with a touch of cinnamon  if you are warm or neutral undertone.

For all my olive skin ladies and gents, because your complexion is a mix of both warm and cool, you look good in both warm and cool blushes. But when choosing the colour, try to go for a natural or mauve blush.

For all the medium dark to dark ladies and gents, finding the right colour to complement your carmel, deep tan, or cocoa complexion is a tricky task.

Medium to Dark Skin with warm undertones, go for a brick red or cool bright pink
MAC Raizin Blush
CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Brick Red 

Medium to Dark skin with cool undertone  go for an orange or coral blush or cool rosy pink
Laura Mercier Second Skin Blush in Rose Petal 

NYX Stick Blush in Tea Rose 

For my deep skin divas and kings, finding the right colour complement your is a job on it own. Not knowing the right colour to choose makes it hard for darker and deeper skin ladies and gents because y'all do not have a natural flush to the skin.

Deep skin with warm undertones, go for deep pink, ruby or bronze blush
Bobbi Brown Blush in Apricot 
Revlon Blush in Wine Not 

Deep skin with cool undertones, go for an orange or tangerine blush
Makeup Forever HD Blush in Tangerine 
NYX Powder Blush in Cinnamon

When it comes to choosing the right blush formula, you need to what your skin type is. 

  • If you have normal skin then the world of makeup is oyster. You can try almost any formula and it will most likely be a success. 
  • If you have dry skin then cream blushes are your best friends. Cream blushes are easier to blends and provide moisture on your skin. 
  • If you have combination skin then powder blush works very well for you. Powder blush will last a lot longer because your t-zone is oily and the cheek area is normal and there is less oily there. 
  • If you have oily skin then you can use either powder or gel blush. Powder blush will last much longer on your oily skin than cream would. A gel blush for oily provides an effortlessly glided on the skin rather than dry skin which is difficult to blend out.
