The Best Blushes To Try For Your Skin Tone

Find the most flattering color for YOU!

Admit it: Your makeup collection has become pretty difficult to navigate because of your numerous lipsticks, face powders, and eyebrow products. If we were to guess the one product you might not have a lot of, though, we'd go with blush. Maybe you stick to one or two blushers at a time, but we bet you never have more than three—which we totally understand! Blush is one of those products not many people hoard because it can be hard to find a color that flatters your skin tone and complements all your makeup looks.

To help you out, we listed down the best blushes for light, medium, tan, and dark complexions!

Skin Tone: Light

  1. MAC Powder Blush in Well Dressed

    If you have fair skin, you'll want to get a blush shade that matches your flush after you've just gone jogging or finished getting busy with your man *wink, wink*. While it might look a bit much on the pan, a baby pink hue actually looks natural and subtle on pale complexions.

    Price: P1,550
    Where to get: Lazada, SM Megamall, SM Makati, SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, Rustan's The Beauty Source
