Blush happens to be one of the most underused and misunderstood makeup products out there. In fact, I’ve known women to avoid it altogether, worried they might look foolish, merely because they are unsure about color choices and exactly how to apply it. While others simply don’t realize the power of blush and how it can transform the face instantly.
Blush isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal — you need to choose the right shade to flatter your complexion. Something too dark or too bright can actually age you instead of giving you that warm, youthful glow. The key is to choose something that’s close to your natural flush and the best way to figure out what that is to pinch your cheeks. If you’re still not sure, here are some tips for finding your best shade.
If you have very pale, fair skin, opt for light pinks for a pretty flush of color that won’t overpower your tone. Pale pink and lilac formulas give a sheer wash of color that flatter your light complexion without looking garish.
