Tips for Picking Out the Perfect Blush

What is the Best Blush for Your Skin Tone?

Every woman knows the importance of a little blush; a subtle color added to your cheeks that brightens your complexion. The highlight adds contour to your face, creating a soft and radiant glow. But finding the perfect texture, let alone the best color, for your skin tone can be tricky. While a powder offers a vibrant color, the lure of a dewy finish is also tempting. How do you know which type is best for your skin?

As a starting point, keep in mind your skin’s natural complexion. Beauty experts agree, the density of a creamy blush is best suited for dry skin. The rich ingredients bring moisture to a parched complexion. Women love this type of blush because of the dewy finish, perfect for a night out. If your skin tends to be more combination to oily, your cheeks could benefit from a powder blush and its long-lasting color.

While shade is highly dependent on preference, there are a few guidelines to follow. Typically, lighter skin tone will be enhanced by pink colors – a more gentle touch – while darker skin tones benefit from burgundy or wine colored hues. Here’s a look at some of the industry’s best blushes.

With a slight iridescent sheen, L’Oreal’s Bare Naturale Mineral Blush in Pinched Pink adds a pop to any cheek. The light-pink mineral powder gives skin fresh vibrancy, highlighting the cheek. And your skin will love the line because it uses a healthy mix of pure minerals, keeping your skin clear of build-up, preservatives and fillers.

If you are interested in experimenting with a creamier blush, Estee Lauder Signature Satin Crème Blush is a perfect place to start. Its silky texture infused with skin-caring technology and antioxidants. The plum-colored blush lifts and contours the look of cheeks. Like with most blush creams, the finish is moist. The blush is perfect for blending and its subtle shimmer enhances your complexion. Also within the line, try out Pure Pops Blush on Color to add a splash of paint to your cheeks.

Illuminate your cheeks and have fun with finding the perfect color.

I purchased two of these discount blushes which were a very good value for the price, ordered because it was a brand name, there was some rust on the metal casing so these were probably in storage for quite sometime. The blush is absolutely gorgeous!
