How to Choose the Right Blush Color for your Skin Tone
The genera rule of thumb is you should choose a blush with the same undertone as your skin. There are three undertones: warm, cool, and neutral. You can figure out your undertone by putting on a white t-shirt and if your skin seems pink or rosy then your skin has cool undertones. If your skin seems yellow then you have warm undertones. If a white t shirt seems to have no effect on the way your skin appears, then you have neutral undertones. You can also try to figure out which skin tone you are by the color of your veins. Blue hued veins suggest cool undertones and green hued veins suggest warm undertones.
But if you want a bold blush, pick a blush color with the opposite undertone as your skin. For example, if you have warm skin tone with a yellow undertone, choose a warm blush shade for a natural look and a cool blush shade for a bolder look. In a nutshell:
- Natural look: Blush with same undertones
- Bold look: Blush with opposite undertones
Here are example blush shades that would match you by skin tone:
Best Blushes for fair skin: Baby pink, Peach, Plum
Best Blushes for olive skin: Warm peach, Rose, Bronze, Copper
Blushes for medium skin: Berry, Apricot
Best Blushes for deep skin: Plum, Berry, Tangerine, Brick red
But obviously wear what you want to wear and what makes you feel best!

I discovered this lip and cheek tint this year and think it would be perfect for someone who wants a versatile product that’s very hydrating and skincare-focused. Tulip-powered skincare brand Bloomeffects has an award-winning tint for lips and cheeks with the most beautiful pink shade that I simply adore. It’s basically skincare in the form of makeup. Inside this small eco-friendly tube is 2 forms of Hyaluronic Acid, Naturally Frozen Grape Extract, peptides, collagen boosting complex, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Neem Leaf and Mooring.
The lip & cheek tint comes in three shades, but my preferred shade is Petal Pink, a bright pop of fucshia-pink. The consistency is a lightweight hydrating cream that’s packed with strong pigment power (a little goes a long way!). The smallest amount gives cheeks a flushed rosy look and lips a ton of color. Because it’s lightweight and hydrating it doesn’t have strong lasting power on the lips though.
