What Is Blush?

Blush has made a huge comeback to the world of cosmetics over the last couple of years. Various trends (such as the soft girl aesthetic) champion rosy, windswept cheeks, with some makeup enthusiasts switching out their classic contour routine in favor of blush.

What Does Blush do?

Blush is a super versatile addition to any makeup bag!

As well as adding a flush of color to the cheeks, when used correctly, blush can deliver that glowy skin you’re looking for, beyond the efforts of bronzer and highlight alone. It’s also a great way to create the illusion of strong cheekbones.

Not sure if you’re using your blush correctly? We’ve got you covered. Check out our complete guide on where to apply blush based on your face shape:

How to Choose a Blush Color

With countless shades of pink, red and orange to choose from, how do you know what blush color is right for you?

Well, don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We divulge into the best blush for your skin tone, covering all depths and undertones, helping you to create that gorgeous, natural glow!

Expert tip: Not sure on your skin undertones? Try the vein and jewelry test:

  • If your veins appear green and you suit gold jewelry better, you likely have warm undertones. This means you suit blush colors that have golden undertones, such as corals, peaches and apricots.
  • If your veins are blue or purple and silver jewelry suits your skin better, you likely have cool undertones. Blush colors that suit you best have blue/purple undertones, such as deep pinks, reds and mauves.

Best Blush for Fair Skin

For those with fair skin, your best blush colors include soft pinks, gentle peaches and light corals.

With warm undertones, try the Makeup Revolution Superdewy Liquid Blush in the color Fake The Flush. This light peachy shade is perfect for complementing the warm, golden undertones in your skin, while adding a subtle pop of color for a natural flushed look.

If you have cool undertones, we recommend the Revolution Blush Bomb Cream Blusher Peach Filter. This warm-toned peach gently contrasts with your naturally cool undertones, helping to add warmth and glow to the cheeks. The light finish of this blush color adds the perfect level of hue without contrasting too much with your fairer skin tone.

Best Blush for Medium Skin

If you have medium skin, what color blush should you wear? We love rich pinks and deep peaches to complement this skin tone.

If your undertones are warm, try the Makeup Obsession Desert Blush West Peach. Not only does this liquid blush glide onto the skin like silk, the gorgeous, rich peach shade is perfect for accentuating your cheekbones and making them pop.

Got medium skin with cool undertones? Your best blush color is our Blush Tint in the shade Desirable. This mauve/pink hue complements cool, medium skin tones perfectly, adding a subtle depth and natural-looking glow to the cheeks. As a sheer liquid blush tint, the intensity can be as light or deep as you desire!

Best Blush for Olive Skin

For all you olive skin toned babes out there, we recommend trying deep pinks, rich peaches and warm apricot blush colors.

Got olive skin with warm undertones? Try the Makeup Obsession Blush Crush Palette in Pink Rosé. Decide how far you’re gonna glow with a choice of two matte and two shimmery pink blush colors to beautifully enhance your natural hues.

If you have cooler undertones, we recommend a pop of this deep pinky mauve blush color. The Makeup Revolution Fast Base Blush Stick in the shade Raspberry not only blends flawlessly with the rest of your base makeup, but the mauve accentuates your cool undertones while adding a natural-looking flush.

Best Blush Colors for Dark Skin

Bold, bright blush colors are your best friend if you have a dark skin tone. Think pops of coral, peaches, tangerines, and fuchsias to get that glow!

If your undertones are warm, we’re obsessed with the Revolution XX XXcess Blush Powder in the shade Cynic. This beautiful bright coral blush color is super pigmented and perfect for complementing your natural warmth.

For dark skin with cool undertones, we love this Planet Revolution Color Pot in Coral Pop. Not only are these blushes perfect for adding a flush of color, but our Color Pots are formulated with Rose Hip Oil and Raspberry Extract to leave skin feeling super hydrated and smelling amazing!
