Blazing Blush: Blush Colors for All Skintones

Hello Everyone!!

Blush is one of those makeup staples that every makeup lover cannot live without. It can either be used everyday to add the most subtle hint of color to add a little excitement to your cheeks or used on nights out for a little drama. Now, if your like me and have a very extreme skin complexion (I am very dark-skinned) then you can have a bit of trouble looking for blush that doesn’t make you look muddy or cartoonish. I am going to give examples of my favorite blush for fair skin, medium skin, dark skin and dark deep skin:

Best Fair Skin Blush:

The Dior Poudre Shimmer Brick in Rose Diamond retails for $49.00 and comes with multiple colors. The colors on the left to right end of the brick are a light champagne color, a pink-champagne color, a pale pink color and a warm toned pink. While this shimmer brick is a bit on the pricey side, it can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadow and blush all in one. I have known some of my friends who only wear variations of this palette on there face and they look incredible. By concentrating on the more pink toned colors of the palette, one can create a beautiful fair toned blusher.

Dupe: NYX Powder Blush in Angel, $5.00

Nars Blush in Orgasm retails for $29.00 at Sephora, and is also known as the “universal blush” by most beauty gurus around the blogging and vlogging circuit. This blush is described as a light pink with gold shimmer, and looks absolutely beautiful on just about any skin tone. However, from my experience, I think this blush looks great on girls with a tan or girls who are of Asian or Latin descent.

Dupe(s): Sleek Blush in Antique, $5.99 and NYX Powder Blush in Pinched, $5.00

Mac Powder Blush in Raizin retails for $21.00 and is a matte golden-reddish brown color. It can be used as a contour on girls of a medium complexion, however, it looks absolutely gorgeous as a blush on darker Latina girls and medium-skinned African Americans. This is also the perfect blush for girls who aren’t a big fan of shimmer on there cheeks, as it is completely shimmer free!

Best Dark Deep Skin Blush:

Mac Powder Blush in Sweet as Cocoa retails for $21.00 and is described as a medium brown blush with a slight deep pink tint and shimmer. Now, I can honestly say that this is the best blush for dark-skinned women that I have ever used. I use this blush everyday, and it looks so natural and complimentary on the skin. It looks a bit red-toned in the picture above, but in real life, it is absolutely gorgeous.
