Blush it up!

You're probably aware that the right cheek makeup can warm up your complexion, add a healthy glow, and even create the illusion of cheekbones — but which blush is best for you? It can feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack as you sort through the different shades. That's why we've enlisted the help of makeup artists to teach us the ins and outs of those shades that can be worn all year round.

Regardless of what season you are in, you may want to keep your beautiful sun-kissed blush from the summer all year. Starting with a blush that adds a wash of color to your face, you can achieve a healthy glow. Blush is now available in various formulas and finishes, ranging from powders to creams, liquids to sticks, and the colors may differ from one product to the next. There are no restrictions on the shade or finish, as long as it warms up your complexion and gives you a gorgeous sun-kissed healthy glow. With that in mind, here are my top six blush colors for achieving that beautiful sun-kissed blush look all year.

1. Bright Pink

Bright, almost neon pinks can appear intimidating, but they're some of the most wearable shades for all skin tones. Because the color is so vibrant, a light hand is all that is required to create a stunning flush that really brightens up the face. Bright pinks look best when applied high on the cheekbones and blended up toward the temple with a soft, fluffy brush.

2. Red

Red blush complements all skin tones. It gives the appearance of a healthy, youthful complexion. You can go as bold or subtle as you want because there is a wide range of bright and muted reds on the market. Always remember one thing about red blush, and that is to not overdo it and to concentrate on the apples of your cheeks. You can go a little lower if you have high cheekbones.

3. Baby Pink

It gives cool skin the softest rosy effect, giving it a little boost when you think you're looking a little peaky. Experts advise choosing a shade that is the same as or slightly darker than your natural flush. The color pay-off is incredible, and a little goes a long way. Also, if you use a stick, you won't need a blusher brush because everything can be blended in with your fingertips.

4. Peachy Orange

Every girl looks for a baked blush with a natural shimmer that blends beautifully with her skin. You want a product that is made with the best ingredients available. One of the best blushes for fair skin with pink undertones is a peachy orange shade that mimics a natural flush.

5. Orange

Darker skin has the same issues as deeper skin tones, but lighter shades can highlight the yellow and warmer undertones. Orange and brick-hued blushes are the best for your skin because they add a pop of color to your cheeks without appearing overpowering. We should strive for a warm glow on your cheeks. Shimmer can also help but use it sparingly on the face.

6. Peach

When you use the right color of blush, it doesn't have to look splotchy on fair skin. A peach blush will give you a bright, fresh appearance without emphasizing redness. A cream-to-powder stick is an excellent choice because it will make you appear slightly flushed rather than sunburned.

When it comes to color cosmetics, it seems like lipstick and eye shadow get all the attention. But the truth is that blush deserves some severe props as well. Your best blush can add warmth and vibrancy to your complexion. Furthermore, if you apply blush correctly, you can highlight your cheekbones and give your face a more sculpted appearance.
