How to Find the Right Blush for Your Skin Tone How to Find the Right Blush for Your Skin Tone How to Find the Right Blush for Your Skin Tone

After giving yourself a near-flawless complexion with a little help from foundation and concealer, you may feel as though your face looks a tad too much like a blank canvas. And you aren't totally wrong, but this blank canvas is the perfect slate for you to add some much-needed color back into your complexion—with a dusting of blush. Blush is a must for any makeup look, whether you’re looking to create something natural or dramatic. But with shades ranging from peach to plum, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with which hues will look the best on you. Below, we’ve broken down how to find the right blush for your skin tone so you can give yourself the most flattering flush as part of your next beauty look.

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT BLUSH FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

Let’s get down to business—when searching for the right blush for your skin tone, you want to make sure you keep your undertones in mind as well. Not sure what your undertones are? Flip your wrist and look at your veins. If they’re green, you have warm undertones. If they’re blue or purple, you have cool undertones. Pick a shade of blush that has undertones that coordinate with your skin for the ultimate flattering hue. This means that if you have warm undertones, you’ll be looking for an orange or red-based blush. If you have cool undertones, you’ll want to find a blue or pink-based blush.

THE BEST BLUSH FOR FAIR SKIN

If you have fair skin, you’ll want to stick with light pinks and peaches for the most part. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try a coral, plum, or another vibrant blush color, apply just a sheer layer of color to avoid a stark contrast.

If you have warm undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Bashful or the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Bare Honey.

If you have cool undertones...try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks in Sexy-Flush or the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Baby Blossom.

THE BEST BLUSH FOR MEDIUM SKIN

Those with medium skin will also want to consider pinks and peaches their best friends when on the hunt for the perfect blush shade. However, as opposed to those with fair skin tones, you have a little more freedom when it comes to delving into richer colors. If you’re looking for something slightly bolder, opt for a mauve shade that won’t be too harsh against your skin.

If you have warm undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Barely Blushing or the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Just Curious.

If you have cool undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Cheek Duo in Romantic in Rose or Pretty in Plum.

THE BEST BLUSH FOR OLIVE SKIN

If you have olive skin, you’re in luck! Your rich skin tone calls for rich blush colors. Think plums, bright corals, popping pinks, and lush brown hues. So pretty!

If you have warm undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Fantastical or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Blush Shaping Sticks in Cheeky Dimension.

If you have cool undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush™ in Innocent Flush or Tender Rose.

THE BEST BLUSH FOR DARK SKIN

The blush world is your oyster! Those with dark skin can pull off dramatic, rich tones without having to worry about creating an unwanted, harsh contrast. Red and orange are particularly flattering on your skin, as well as shades of brown.

If you have warm undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Charming or the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush™ in Apricot Kiss.

If you have cool undertones…try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush™ in Spiced Plum or Rosy Outlook.
