How to Transform Your Look With Blush

How to Transform Your Look With Blush

When you're a kid, one of the most iconic parts of a makeup look is the blush. Along with eyeshadow and lip liner, it's the makeup product that you're guaranteed to over-do at least once. Every shade of blush can give you a special je ne sais quoi to each look you wear depending on not only skin tone, but undertone, finish, and formula. Check out our mini-guide below on how to wear certain shades of blush and when to not wear them.

One of the most flattering shades on dark skintones is a warm plum toned blush, both matte and shimmer. For a dewy look like the one above, use a blush like the Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek blushstick in Rally ($24) for a kiss of color to the cheeks without looking powdery.

For pale skintones with pink undertones, try bringing a little orange into the equation. BareMinerals loose blush in Vintage Peach ($21) will bring a touch of color without bringing up any redness, and without creating any ashy or purple tones that a cooler blush would. A light, peachy blush is perfect for any look, from a dark smokey eye to a simple everyday look. Think of this one as your default blush, and a must-have in any collection.

A punch of color to match your favorite lipstick? Try using a staining formula for guaranteed color that will melt into the skin while staying poppin all day long. theBalm InStain in Toile ($22) can get you this raspberry pop at a great pricepoint.

If you're into a cool-toned punk look, a purply- icy pink blush like the Hourglass Ethereal Glow blush ($38) is perfect for a wash of color without adding too much warmth to the look. This is a great blush to use on a dark, heavy, smudgy look and a nude lip.

Olive skin tones can rock almost any shade, but our fave is a bronzy blush like the Milani Rose Powder Blush in Warm Petals ($9) . It adds warmth without looking like a stripe of bronzer and allows your gorgeous caramel glow to shine through. Another universal blush shade for any occasion, this is also a great one for a monotone look.
