- On a gloomy, gloomy day, just one blush move will change it. So face it right away and add a little sparkle and fun to the whole look.
And there are plenty of options for every skin tone and individuality, not to mention textures and prices. From the iconic Nars orgasm to new age beauties like the iconic Beam from Glossier, there’s a lot to experiment with this season.
Deep skin tones: red, maroon, and burgundy
M.A.C Matte Powder Blush – Honest Scarlett
The fact that multiple colors stand out on deep skin makes it difficult, but we understand that it permits us to go deeper, darker, more pigmented tones. Try pink or peach, and you’ll likely end up looking scaly and pale. For a natural look, go for bolder colors – plum, burgundy, and maroon, even red.
Choose cream lipsticks over powders, as the latter will make a person look pale again, while the creamy texture gives them an almost dewy feel. Avoid glitter and get a matte surface that will add depth to your look.
Best Lipstick: Nars Blush at Exhibition A; Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks – Raspberry; and M.A.C Matte Powder Blush – Honest Scarlett
Dark skin tone: terracotta and purple
Stila’s personalized blush in adjustable bronze
Darker skin has the same problems as deep skin tones, but lighter tones can be chosen that have a yellow and warmer tone. Oranges and shades in brick tones are best suited for this, as they give the cheeks the needed pop without looking too high. Warm light is what we must strive for.
Shimmers can also work wonders, but she uses them sparingly.
Best Lipstick: Clinique Cheek Pop – Cola Pop; M.A.C Matte Powder Blush – charred pepper; and Stila Custom Color Blush in customizable bronze and Forever High-Resolution Cream makeup – #425
Olive skin tone: deep pink and luxurious orange
Tom Ford blushed
Olive skin tones are great for trying out unusual colors, namely beige and matte. They lie precisely in between medium and light skin tones, so there’s a little bit of fun to be had, and you should focus on pale pinks, bright oranges, and fun bronzes – all of which give the face more profound and more beautiful contours. Best Lipstick: Bobbi Brown Blush in Clementine; Tom Ford Sheer Cheek’s ghost in Exotica Flora; and Givenchy Blush Memoire De Forme
Medium skin tone: peach and pink
The good thing about medium skin tones is that it is a lighter shade, but more pigmentation comes out amazingly. The texture can be matte or powdery, but it shows a good flush and adds a freshly sunburnt look. Choose lighter peaches, pink pinks, and dusty purples to deepen the effect and add shine. Everything on the stick works here to create that charisma.
