These Are The Best Blushes For Fair Skin, According To A Makeup Artist
By Marissa DeSantis
Your makeup routine is meant to be customized with products that not only suit your personal preferences, but that also complement your natural features. And unlike a foundation you simply match to your skin tone or an eyebrow pencil you match to your hair a color, finding the right blush can seem more complicated. Luckly, if you're currently on the hunt for one of the best blushes for fair skin, makeup artist Omayma Ramzy shares that it’s surprisingly easy.
As a general rule, Ramzy says peach and soft rose hues work best with fair skin. “They give you a little flush without looking like you’ve been out in the sun for too long.” As for rosier shades, Ramzy says they create a natural pink glow. “There’s something very romantic about the just-pinched effect with fair skin,” she says.
Beyond shades, Ramzy says it’s also important to consider the formula, noting that on lighter skin tones, it doesn’t take much for blush to show up. Whether you’re a fan of a bold blush or you prefer something subtler, Ramzy says that creamy formulas are a great option because they provide buildable color.
