Find the Best Blush for Your Skin Tone

Every woman has a makeup product you won’t leave home with out applying— mine is blush. If you’re anything like me, you know adding a hint of color to the apples of your cheeks can keep you looking fresh-faced all day. However, all too often blush is overlooked; many women simply use the first pink shade they can find. The truth is, like all other makeup, there is an art to choosing the best blush shade for your skin, and our Director of Makeup Education, Tricia Behmardi has the scoop.

When you have fair/light skin, your best blush shades are soft pink, light coral, and peach.

For ladies, with light skin tones and cool or pink undertones, you should wear the soft pink shades for a natural look and the peach/coral shades for a pop of color.

If you have a light skin tone and warm or golden undertones, try wearing the peachy coral shades for a natural look and the soft pink blushes for a pop of color.

Women with dark skin look wonderful in deep fuchsia, berry, warm brown, raisin and tangerine blush shades. Cream blushes are a great way to get high-impact color that still looks natural.

If you have cool or pink undertones, wear the fuschia or light berry shades for a natural look and the tangerine hues for a pop of color.

Those with warm or golden undertones, should wear the warm brown or tangerine shades for a natural look and the pinks and berries for a pop of color.

When to Wear Warm and Cool Blush Tones

There’s a simple trick to deciding whether to wear a warm or cool tone blush. For a natural look, choose a blush with the same undertone as your skin. If you want a bold looking blush, pick one with the opposite undertone as your skin.

Therefore, If you have a warm skin tone (a yellow undertone), choose warm blush shade for a natural look and a cool blush shade for a pop of color. Vice versa if you have a cool skin tone (a pink undertone).

  • Warm Blushes: Coral, Peach, Tangerine, Brown
  • Cool Blushes: Fuchsia, Pink, Raisin, Berry
  • Neutral Blush: Mauve

  1. Great tips. I’m happy you broke down how to wear warm and cool tones. I have cool undertones and have always thought that I could never wear warm tones. I have just recently been wearing your Whisper blush (warm), and I do think it compliments my skin tone. Maybe I’ll be more confident wearing the right warm tones that compliment my coloring!

  2. I love JI powder blushes. I own Cotton Candy, Whisper, and Sheer Honey. The muted sparkles makes my skin look flawless day and night. Sheer Honey is my favorite, I have a medium-light complexion with strong yellow undertones
