Check out 5 frugal and pocket-friendly blush colors suitable for all skin complexions and seasons!
What’s instantly-brightening, face-flattering, and an absolute must for every season? A good shade of blush! A blush is one product that not only defines our facial contours, but also imparts that healthy glow and prevents our skin from getting oily in sultry weather. Powder and gel blushes are good for oily skin; cream is best for normal to dry skin. Whichever type you choose, its shade should match your natural coloring, so try to pick one that reflects your color when you blush normally. Select a color that will accent your existing best facial features and that won’t stand out too much. Bright red may not look great on a pale person but can be terrific on a bronzed brown skin tone. If you’re pale, try a soft pink color or maybe even something with a little tan and pink in it.
Depending on your skin tone, you might need a lighter or a darker color. Dark skin needs a lighter color, whereas light skin may need a more natural color such as brown or tan. It is suggested that to select the right color of blush, make a fist for about ten seconds, and the resulting color on your fingers is the color that you want to match. Once you have done that, here is our pick of the best blushes in town, that will add a glow to your cheek, without burning a hole in your pocket…Thank us later 🙂
