An essential part of any makeup kit, blush can lend skin a healthy, natural glow – assuming the right shade is applied. However, with endless hues to choose from, it can be difficult to determine the best color for you. So, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to help you find the best blush for your skin tone and undertone.
How to find the best blush for your skin
Step 1: Determine your skin tone
Your tone is the color you see in the mirror when looking at your bare skin in natural light. It can be fair, light, medium, olive, dark, or deep.
Step 2: Determine your undertone
Your skin’s undertone is the underlying color that your skin tone casts. It can be warm, cool or neutral.
To determine your natural undertone, assess whether silver or gold jewelry best complements your skin. If it’s gold, your undertone is warm. If it’s silver, your undertone is cool. If both work with your skin tone, your undertone is neutral.
Step 3: Choose your shade
With pinks, corals, oranges, reds, beiges, and browns available, it can be hard to find the right shade to complement your skin tone and achieve your desired finish. Our below guide will help.

The best blush for fair skin
Soft pink, light coral and peachy hues make the best blush for fair and light skin tones. For a natural finish, apply a soft pink shade to skin with cool undertones and a peachy shade to skin with warm undertones. For a bolder look, apply a peachy shade to skin with cool undertones and a soft pink shade to skin with warm undertones.
