Blush is a top contender when it comes to our must-have beauty products. Why? It creates a colorful, shimmery glow, applies easily, and looks equally great whether you rock a full face of makeup or you just want to wear the basics.
But every makeup maven knows that it’s important to find a blush that complements your skin tone. At BH Cosmetics, we love experimenting with makeup to find the best formulas and colors for every skin.
Here are our tips for which blushes look best with olive, fair, medium, and dark skin tones. Additionally, we recommend a BH blush product for every skin tone.
Roses and Peaches for Fair Skin
Always match your blush to your skin’s undertones, as blush is meant to bring out your natural color. So if you have fair skin with peach undertones, a peach blush will go well with your complexion. A light rosy, pink looks gorgeous for babes with pink or red undertones. If you like to change your makeup with the seasons, a light coral blush is beautiful for summer.
To give you an extra pop, use a shimmery powder or gel formula rather than a matte formula. These blushes will blend well, but still give you some sparkle and dimension on your face. For fair-skinned babes, we recommend our Nude Blush palette, which contains shimmery corals and light pinks.
Bright Pinks for Medium Skin
Most people fall into this skin tone category, and if you’re one of them, opt for a bright pink or mauve. Even a blush in fuchsia looks fabulous on you. Peach also looks great, especially if you have gold undertones. Your medium skin tone allows you to go with a deeper peach than someone with fair skin.

Apricots and Neutral Roses for Olive Skin
Olive skin is similar to medium skin, but tends to have fewer golden or brown undertones. Therefore, you want to choose neutral shades of blush colors. Anything cool can make your skin look blue or yellow. Neutral roses, berries, and apricots look best on olive skin. Any of the shades in this four-color blush palette would look beautiful on you!
Deep Reds and Berries for Dark Skin
If your skin tone is on the darker side of the color spectrum, you have a wide range of hues to choose from. Experiment with deep reds, roses and even oranges. Deep purples also look amazing on you. Our Blushed Neutrals Palette has deep purples and berries that look gorgeous with dark skin!
Along with your blush, add a gold or champagne color to highlight. Swipe on some of our Bahama Bronze Duo Cheek Color as a highlighter to compliment your skin tone and create a sun-kissed look.
Always remember when applying blush that a little goes a long way. Start with a small amount and layer until you get the look that you want. Blush should go on the apples of your cheeks. The easiest way to make sure you get the apples of your cheeks is to smile when you apply, and then swipe towards your ears.
