"Choose shades that complement your complexion. Cool and pink undertones look best in pinks and berries."
"Warm and yellow undertones look best in peaches, corals and golden bronzes."
"Dark skin looks amazing in plum-based colors."
"As your skin tone changes with the seasons, so should your blush. For example, during the winter, cheeks are naturally rosy so stick to pink shades. To complement bronze skin in the summer, I love bronze, coral and fuchsia."
"Always choose a soft blush shade during the day to avoid looking too harsh in natural light."
"If you’re going out at night, add a layer of cheek stain or cream blush on top of the cheekbones to give skin a gorgeous, dramatic dewy effect."
"Powder is the easiest type of blush to apply. Place the product on the apples of your cheeks and sweep upward toward your ear in a check mark motion—it's like an instant face lift!"
"Stains look the most natural. To apply, dab onto the apples of your cheeks and blend up over the cheekbones."
"If you have dry skin, choose a hydrating cream blush."
