Since we know just how challenging and confusing it gets, we're here to help you figure out the right blush shade to suit your skin tone! But before getting started, make sure you know your color first. Also, remember that these hues are merely suggestions to help flatter and emphasize your beautiful, natural color.

Try not to get too carried away when applying blush. Since your complexion is fair, light shades of pink, peach, or berry will flatter your skin best! Anything that's not subtle or pale will be too much of a harsh contrast on your skin.

Don't be intimidated by deep hues or bold shades. Deep or bright shades of red, orange, or brown will give your skin a radiant look. Anything too light or subtle will just wash out your skin.
