What Is The Best Blush Colour For My Skin Tone?


When it comes to picking the right blush for your complexion, it’s important that you select the right one that compliments your skin tone and is the correct match for you. After all, blush should give you a natural look, and it should uplift your cheeks and your overall complexion.

If you’re wondering what blush colour is best for your skin tone, then take a look at this simple guide…

Fair Skin

If you have fair or pale skin, then the best blush colours for your complexion include baby pink, rosy and peach. If you’re trying to achieve the au-naturelle look, then a baby pink blush is the obvious and go-to choice. However, if you don’t want a touch of pink or you want something a little different, then a peach blush is your best bet, as it’s very flattering on fair/pale skin and it looks authentic. For a slightly bold and daring look, you can opt in for a sheer plum blush.

Our top picks of blush for fair skin include: Nars Blush in Gaiety, Temptu Airpod Blush in Peony Pink, Nars Blush in Mata Hari and Nars Liquid Blush in Orgasm.

Warm Tones

For warm tones, apricot and purple colours are much more appropriate. Apricot is subtle on warm skin tones and also complementary, but don’t overdo it. As for purple shades, a pale purple or soft berry shade is a great match and is fantastic for those with warm tones who want to create an edgy look that is eye-catching and stands out.

Our top picks of blush for warm tones include: Nars Liquid Blush in Luster, Temptu Airpod Blush in Washed Rose and Surratt Artistique Blush in Cantaloup.

Olive Skin

Olive skin has green undertones so select the right blush carefully. To accentuate your olive skin tone, aim to use a blusher with warm and glowing hues and a dewy effect, such as a peach shade, rose colour or bronze. Peach gives olive skin a cool and natural effect. Rose gives olive skin a delicate boost to your complexion, while bronze gives olive skin a sun-kissed gleam.

Our top picks of blush for olive skin include: Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Bronzing Veil in Desert Days, the Temptu Airpod Bronzer in Warm Glow and Delilah Pure Light Compact Illuminating Powder.

Dark Skin

For dark skin, darker hues and highly pigmented shades are best, so opt for dark purples and deep pinks. For those with dark skin who want a wild-coloured blush, terracotta and tangerine are good choices of colours for your cheeks.

Our top picks of blush for dark skin include: Becca Mineral Blush in Nightingale, Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Blaze and Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Blush in Sunset.
