How do you find the best blushes to use? While most women think they have their favorite colors and types of blush, they don’t always know what the best colors are for their skin tone or undertones. With so many colors of blush and so many options on the market, it can be difficult to choose which one is right for you. In this guide, we will help you choose the best blushes based on your skin tone.
As with every makeup, blush isn’t for everyone. But if you are looking to add a bit of color to your face and find your look is lacking something, then blush might be exactly what you need. What kind will suit you best? With so many different formulas, colors, and brands available it can be hard to find out which type is right for you. Luckily we have put together a list of our favorite blushes that women of all skin tones can enjoy!
Best Blushes for Pale Skin
While it’s tempting to believe that blush is only for women with darker skin tones, that simply isn’t true. Everyone can (and should) wear blush, but you’ll want to make sure you choose a shade that’s complementary to your skin tone. For pale skin tones, try a rose-pink blush. As always, test out a new color before you buy it! A makeup counter or store will let you sample any color or product. Once you’ve found one or two shades that look good on your face and go well with your complexion, apply them after cleansing in the morning and evening.
Best Blushes for Medium Skin
If you have a medium skin tone, it’s not difficult to find blushes that look good on you. Many brands offer a variety of pink and peach shades, but if you want something that stands out from all those pinks, consider going with a bright color such as fuchsia or plum. Avoid coral-colored blushes—they can be too loud for your skin tone, especially if your hair is dark and/or you have a lot of freckles. Rose-colored blushes are also too loud because they contrast with warm undertones.
Best Blushes for Tan Skin
Tan skin is gorgeous, but it can be hard to find blush shades that flatter your tan complexion. The key to finding flattering blushes for tan skin is a combination of color and undertone. You want colors that are slightly deeper than your skin tone and that have pink or red undertones (otherwise known as cool colors). Shades like rose, plum, mauve, and lavender are always a safe bet.

Best Blushes for Darker Skins
Darker-skinned women have a few more makeup options than women with lighter skin. While light colors like pink and peach would look garish on darker skins, deeper hues like purple and mauve can be combined with lighter ones to create interesting looks. We especially love dark reds mixed with gold or layered with light pinks. If you’re going to wear a red blush, it’s best to stick to cooler tones like plum; warmer shades such as cherry will just make your face appear redder. Also, remember that you don’t always need a lot of colors warmth comes from undertones in your skin, not necessarily intensity.
