How To Choose The Correct Blush Shade

In order to choose the correct blush shade is quite easy, I know alot of you are like, not it’s not easy! But here are a few fool proof tips. Tip number one, the blush should always reflect your lips undertone. That undertone will be the perfect shade for your cheeks. As many of you might have seen, there are many shades of blush, lighter and darker. If you bought a shade to dark or too light for your skin tone do not toss is out, use it! You can use it to contour or highlight your cheeks. Tip number two, would be to pick up a few blushes and just place then near your face and look at yourself in the mirror. Which blush looks most complimenting and seems most natural will be the perfect shade for your skin tone.

Perfect Blush Shade For All Skin tones

When choosing the perfect blush shade, applying the blush is as important as the correct shade. It’s important that you choose the right makeup brush. This is why I always recomment the Sigma Beauty F40 large contour brush. This is a must have brush in your makeup kit, not only is it great fo contouring but it’s perfect for applying blush and powder highlighters. Another tips would be to choose a blush shade that compliments your hair colour. Women and men with more orange hair tend to look great with orange toned blushes that compliment their hair colour. Another makeup tip for the perfect blush shade for all skin tones, would be that you choose a blush that compliments your skin’s undertone. This is possibly mandatory. Not only do you have to find a shade that is not to light nor to dark but a shade that has your skin’s undertone. If you do not know which undertone you have make sure to check out my video tutorial on how to find your skin’s undertone. The second to last tip would be to choose a blush shade that will make your eyes stand out, for example peach blush shades draw attention to blue eyes, while pink with violet undetones draw attention to hazel eyes.
