Quick Tip: Pick the Right Color of Blush

Finding the right shade of blush can be confusing. I've often found myself standing in the cosmetics aisle looking at what seems to be millions of blush color choices wondering what to do (and who in the world can actually pull off an ultra-bright tangerine blush without looking like she was attacked by a rogue paintballer).

If you need a natural looking blush you can wear during the day, try these two tips:
  • If you aren't wearing any foundation or blush, bend over and touch your toes. Stay in this position for a few seconds, allowing the blood to rush to your head. When you come back up (carefully!), look at your cheeks. This is your natural color--pick a blush as close to this shade as possible. OR
  • To look less foolish in public, just look at the natural color of your lips and pick a shade that closely matches.
Either way, you should end up with cheeks that look fresh, with just a touch of complimentary and flattering color...not like a tragic beauty victim.

Happy blushing!
