THE RIGHT blush for your complexion will give you a gorgeous, healthy glow.
But choosing the best blusher for your skin tone can be a confusing task.
Don’t worry, there’s a host of gorgeous shades that are perfect for you just waiting to be snapped up.
Fair skin? Reach for soft, subtle shades in pink, peach and nude, and look for a satin-finish to avoid a chalky look.
Medium skin tones can take slightly more pigment, and look good in apricots and mauves.
Lucky enough to have olive skin? You can carry off warm shades, like corals, peaches, and punchy pinks. Dark skin looks fab with terracotta shades, while black skin tones can really carry off intense pigments in reddish tones, brick, raisin, and tangerines.
We’ve tracked down the best blusher for your skin tone below, so you can have chic cheeks every single day.
1. Best blusher for fair skin
- Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in Peaceful, £25 from Tarte – buy here
Soft shades of pink, peach and nude are perfect for pale skin.
It’s best to avoid strong colours to prevent a harsh contrast between your complexion and your cheeks creating a painted ‘clown’ look.
Tarte’s Amazonian clay blush in Peaceful is a lovely mix of peachy-nude that will warm up your cheeks with a subtle back-from-a-walk flush.
Love soft pink? Benefit’s Dandelion is also super-pretty.
2. Best blusher for medium skin
- Nars Blush in Orgasm, £25 from Feel Unique – buy here
It’s fair to say that this flatters-all blush would look good on practically anybody.
But it’s particularly fab on fair to medium skin, with its peach-pink tones warming up the complexion and its gold flecks adding a subtle luminous glow.
Soft shimmers work well on medium skin tones, so the mix of colour and sheen are ideal.
It also sinks into the skin instead of ‘sitting’ on it, with a lovely satin finish, avoiding the chalky look some blushers create. We’re sold.
3. Best blusher for olive skin
- Benefit Coralista Blusher, £26 from Feel Unique – buy here
Peachy, coral-toned blushers are perfect to pep-up green-toned olive skin.
Benefit’s Coralista Blush is a lovely warming coral-pink that would suit most skin tones but is lovely on a Mediterranean complexion, giving a subtle pop of colour.
Comes with its own handy little brush for an on-the-run radiance boost.
4. Best blusher for dark skin
- Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic in Sex on Fire, £30 from Feel Unique – buy here
This two-tone tawny rose powder blush is a colour-rich formula with a creamy, silky-smooth texture.
Finely crushed pearls create a luminous, candlelit glow, while the colour is build-able to create a sheer to intense shade depending on your needs.
A gorgeous, sumptuous, sexy blush that’s great on dark skin tones.
5. Best blusher for black skin
- Bare Minerals GEN NUDE Glow Blusher in On The Mauve, £23 from Look Fantastic – buy here
Deep skin tones work really well with reddish pigments.
Bare Minerals On The Mauve is a gorgeous, rich burgundy blush with red undertones that will create a radiant, natural-looking flush.
Don’t be put off by a bright-looking red blusher, it will appear fresh and natural on your skin. Nars Blush in Exhibit A is another fab option.
