You’re Making Me Blush

Written by ouiidistrict

Blush is an essential part of the everyday woman’s morning routine. And yet, I somehow haven’t talked about my favorites with you all. It seems easy enough, but selecting a blush that is the right shade, goes on evenly, and lasts throughout the day is not as easy to find as some may think. Today, I am going to touch on blushes by both skin tone and skin type. Here are my tops picks by shade and skin tone compatibility.



Baby Pink – Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin

Peach – Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Sheer Plum – Josie Maran Coconut Water Color Cheek Gelee in Berry Bliss



Apricot – Nars Multiple in South Beach or Stila Convertible Color in Petunia

Mauve – Loreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Blush in Spiced Plum

Soft Berry – Smash Box Blush Rush in Radiance


Orangey Peach – Josie Maran Cream Blush in Sunset

Rose – Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Initial

Bronze – Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Allure



Raisin – Make Up For Ever HD High Defenition Blush in #1 or Mac Powder Blush in Raizin

Brick – Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Bold Blush in Irresistible 

Bright Tangerine – Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blush in Coral Reef or Nars Blush in Exhibit A



Now what type of blush is best for your skin type? You have two options: Cream or Powder.

As someone who has incredible oily skin, I was skeptical about using a cream blush. I mostly worried about its ability to last throughout the day. However, I found it lasted just as nicely as my normal go-to powder blush. If I was a dry skin type, cream would be the way to go. For all other skin types, I say use what you love. Use whatever makes you feel most beautiful. Just remember, when it comes to blush, it is best to start light, and you can always add more if needed. As always, thanks for stopping by and reading.

Until next week,

Stay Beautiful
