Hello everyone!

There are so many blush shades on the market right now but which colour is the best for you? Do you know what the purpose of a blush is? When you pick up the right shade for your complexion – yes we’re here again YOUR COMPLEXION and not the colour or the packaging you like the most – it should give you a bright and fresh look.

The best way to choose your perfect blush is to compare it with the colour of your cheeks when you’ve a natural flush. Another possibility is to look at the colour on the inside of your lips. I know it seems a little bit strange but it should also work.

As always I recommend knowing your skin tone. Is it cool, warm or neutral? If you’ve no clue try looking at your veins on the wrists. Are they mostly blue and purple then you have a cool undertone. Are they mostly green then you have a warm undertone. Are they a mix of blue, purple and green then you have a neutral undertone. A skin with neutral undertone can wear both warm and cool colours. If you have yellow-olive undertones go for warmer shades and if your skin has pink-blue undertones opt for cooler more blue-based colours.
