Tips for Choosing the Right Blush

Amidst the multitude of blushes available in the market, one can sometimes feel overwhelmed. Here are some quick tips on looking great without ending up with doll-like cheeks!
Choosing the wrong blush can lead to common mishaps like unflattering colors, textures unsuitable for your skin type, and questionable application techniques.
To avoid these pitfalls, here are some tips for choosing the right blush.

Before Choosing Your Blush: Understand Its Purpose

The blush is used to give a healthy appearance and enhance the natural contours of the skin, namely the cheekbones. Foundation tends to overly unify the skin, making it look "lifeless."
Blush awakens and achieves a more natural complexion.

The challenge is to transform a colored powder into something almost imperceptible.

Choose Your Blush: What Texture?

Blushes come in various sizes and textures today, including cream, liquid, and powder, depending on the desired effect, the foundation used, and the skin type.

Powder Blush

It is the most well-known, available from all brands at various price points. Use a brush, sweep it quickly over the product, tap to remove excess powder, and lightly brush it on the cheeks without pressing too hard. It can be applied on all types of foundations but may emphasize dryness in very dry skin.

Cream Blush

There are cream blushes, either in cream form or compact powder. Regardless, the key to these blushes is to use very little product, as applying too much can result in an artificial look.
For creamy textures, take a small amount, like two grains of rice, and apply it along the cheekbone, blending by hand. Alternatively, blend it with a sponge to melt the product.
For compact textures, found in compacts or sticks, dab along the cheekbone and blend. You can also pick up the product directly with a sponge and pat it on the cheek.
Note that cream blush should not be applied with a powder base if a "shiny" effect is desired, and it is not recommended for oily skin. Additionally, it may not work well over a powder foundation.

Liquid Blush

It is the trickiest to work with. Apply it with a small brush along the cheekbone, as it dries quickly and can stain your fingers. When dosed properly, it looks natural and transparent. However, a slight overdose can make it appear artificial. For beginners, placing a small amount on the fingertip, applying quickly, and blending well with a sponge is sufficient.

Choose the Blush: What Color?

The blush war is not just between pink and peach! Every shade in the color spectrum now has a worthy representative among our blush friends, and choosing a blush based on color is not arbitrary.

For Fair Skin

Ideally, approach the natural color of your cheeks when they blush. A fairly light pink or a rosy stick is recommended, providing a natural nude appearance.

For Dark Skin

Plum is more flattering for darker skin tones with cool, almost bluish pigmentation. Well-applied, it sculpts the face without being too much. Golden tones are also suitable for Mediterranean and black complexions, providing a tired look to fair skin. Red looks beautiful on all skin tones with yellow undertones and dark skin, but it should be applied with care. Moreover, it is rarely 100% red, more like pinks with red pigments!

A Universal Shade?

There are many shades of peach blush that suit skin tones tending to yellow. If you're looking for a universal shade, choose a fairly soft and slightly orange peach.
Finally, for those who want a truly natural look: match the blush color with the lipstick color. Clearly, a tea rose blush necessarily goes with a lipstick in the same tones, rather than a peach blush with a plum lipstick.

If you're wondering: iridescent or matte?
If you want to add a touch of light to your cheeks, use an iridescent blush. If your skin tends to be oily or has a visible texture, iridescent blush can accentuate it, so a matte blush may be more suitable.
These are just tips, and there's no obligation to use any shade or texture of blush. If you want a blush, it's best to try and see if it suits you!
