The Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Perfect Blush

"Warm and yellow undertones look best in peaches, corals and golden bronzes."

"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."

"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."

"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."
