Which Blush Shade Would Best Suit Your Skin Type?

You might already know that the perfect blush can brighten your skin, provide a healthy glow, and even give the illusion of higher cheekbones. But which blush is ideal for you? We have enlisted steps to choose the right blush colour for every skin tone – from lighter to deeper or for olive skin-toned beauties.

Why is choosing the blush that suits your skin important?

Face blush provides a pink hue, making you appear naturally bright, woke, and gives a healthy glow to your skin. The right blush tint should blend nicely with your complexion rather than stick out. When it comes to complimenting and lifting your makeup, the correct blush can do wonders. It can make your cheeks look rosy, flushed, and your makeup look brighter. Conversely, choosing the wrong colour can result in beauty faux pas, such as muddy, ashy, or clownish.

How do you choose the perfect blush for you when there are so many stunning shades?

Blush is all about brightening and refreshing your face, so choose a colour that compliments the colour of your cheeks when you have a natural blush. To determine if a blush colour would suit your skin shade, you can try this simple trick- compare a blush with your lip colour. To check if the blush shade clashes with your natural lip colour or lipstick:

  1. Try it on the apples of your cheeks.
  2. Choose a different shade if it appears odd or weird.
  3. Remember to apply blush after applying the foundation, bronzer, and eye makeup.

Once you’ve decided on a colour, selecting the type of blush is simple: If you have oily skin, choose a matte blush. Creamy and glowy blush looks great on dry and clean skin. Add a powder blush formula over a stain or balm if you want a more dramatic effect.

What is the ideal way to apply blush?

Always cleanse and moisturise your face before applying face blush to blend into your skin and stay in place all day. It is because dry skin does not retain makeup as effectively as oily skin. Keeping your skin healthy, exfoliated, and clean helps makeup blend in flawlessly and last longer.

The ideal way to apply blush on your face is to sweep the brush cheekbone towards the temple. To make your face appear healthy and for a rosy glow, apply a touch of blush to the chin and blend gently. Next, apply blush on the cheekbones below the outer corners of the eyes and blend nicely. To let the blush retain on your face for a longer period, we suggest you start with a makeup primer.

How to choose a colour that complements your skin tone?

●   Light Skin:

Go with a peach shade for a lighter skin type when in doubt. It’s one of the most pleasing tints for both warm and cool-toned skin tones, and it’s especially lovely if your skin has a yellow undertone. On the other hand, stick to gentler hues rather than neon brights if you have a pale complexion. Good old baby pink is another option for pale skin. For a soft radiance, use tones in light pink like Ecostay long-lasting silky-smooth blush – English Pink.

●  Wheatish Skin:

Over 80% of Indian women have a wheatish skin tone. When it comes to blush, this skin tone can pull off most types of colours. Corals, peaches, and darker shades of pink instantly brighten the wheatish complexion without looking out of place. You can also choose tones ranging from rosy pink to orange.

We recommend Ecostay long-lasting silky-smooth blush – Coral Glaze.

Dusky Skin:

For dusky skin, select a colour ranging from rose to deep orange. Deep fuchsia, cherry, warm brown, raisin, and tangerine blush hues look great on women with dark skin. Light shades should be avoided since they might make you appear washed out and dirty. Instead, choose warm tones like Ecostay long-lasting silky-smooth blush Love – Caffeine that compliments your skin tone. Use a makeup fixer for an added effect and long-lasting stay.

The Ecostay Silky Smooth Blush with microfine pigments can give you a powerful colour pay-off that will endure for hours. The ultra-fine powder blush dissolves into your skin with ease. This can be your go-to blush for achieving the perfect fresh-faced appearance and feel.

When it comes to acing the makeup game for any skin type, trust a brand like Lotus Herbals that offers thoughtfully-curated products that are free of chemicals, cruelty, and are completely organic with rich natural ingredients.
