The right blush has the ability to turn a lackluster, dull complexion into healthy, lively, glowing skin in a flick of the wrist. Here are our favorite picks for fair, medium, and dark skin tones.
Fair Skin - Baby Pink
Pale pink is typically what most people with fair skin blush, so as a blush, it looks natural on the skin. Baby pink gives enough of a subtle flush that won't look orangey on fair skin tones.

or Rejuva Minerals' Multi Purpose Pressed Powder in Acai Berry
Fair Skin - Peach
Peach is a universally flattering blush color. Pop it onto any skin tone and it will look wonderful, but those with fair skin tones in particular will see their complexion enhanced and brightened.
Try Terre Merre's Mineral Blush in Peach.
Medium Skin - Berry
Like pale pink is flattering on pale skin, medium pink is flattering on medium skin. A berry shade is soft and pretty, and can go vibrant on medium skin while still looking natural.

Medium Skin - Coral

Dark Skin - Red
If you're blessed with beautiful dark skin, show those cheeks off! With the depth of your tone, you are able to carry a lot of color. Dark skin tones look incredible with a bright red flush.

Dark Skin - Bright Tangerine
This bright shade may look intimidating, but on dark skin it's subtle and pretty. A bright blush can look surprisingly neutral on darker skin tones.
