How To Choose the Perfect Blush!


Watch the video here!

Knowing what blush shades will look best on you is easy, provided you know your skin undertone!  If you don't know that yet, please watch this video which best describes how to figure it out! 

Here are the blushes that best suit WARM skin tones:  

Georgia by BenefitA light peach shade
Looks best on fair warm undertoned skin.

Soft Sand by Kiko - A dark peach
Looks best on medium to dark warm undertoned skin.

Autumn Floral Blush by FYF Cosmetics - A mixture of dark peach, gold and bronze tones
Looks best on dark warm undertoned skin.

And here are the blushes that best suit COOL skin tones:

Maybelline Expertwear Blush in Rose - a rose/baby pink shade
Looks best on fair cool/pink undertoned skin.

NYX Blush in Pinky - a hot pink shade
Looks best on cool undertoned skin with darker features.

The best blush colour for both warm and cool undertoned REDHEADS:

Coralista by Benefit - A true coral
Looks best on all redheads, and also dark warm undertoned skin.

If you are NEUTRAL:

Maybelline Dream Mousse in Peach Satin - a peachy pink shade.
Looks best on neutrals and olive skin.

I hope this will help you to determine which blush will suit you best!  Of course these are by no means any kind of rules to live by, experiment with whatever blush colours you like! This is just for those who requested the video and who are interested in knowing the theory behind makeup for your colouring :)  

I will now leave you with a beautiful picture...


This is how much I would like you to donate to PAWS today ;)

Stay Stylish!

  1. Nice Post. But in my opinion Coralista is also a neutral blush. Because the shade coral is peach-pink colour.

  7. Blush is one of my favorite beauty products, probably because I use so few products on a daily basis. Blush literally makes me look human every day, and I have no idea what I'd do without it. I love a ruddier color so I always look slightly flushed.
