Most Flattering Blushes for Different Skin Tones

Posted on 05 July 2017



Blush can be used in a variety of ways when it comes to enhancing your features, whether it be sculpting your cheekbones with a darker shade, adding color to the face with your perfect shade, or using it as an eyeshadow.  Blush can be the focal point, when it’s the most emphasized product on your face, or the afterthought of a look, when it doesn’t necessarily stand out, but does subtly complement the complexion.  A lot of different skin tones can wear a variety of different blushes; makeup is all about experimenting, after all, and sometimes you want a blush that complements your lips or your eyes, but not necessarily your undertone.


For a selection of a variety of blushes to complete any makeup look, try our Signature Blush Palette (5 shades), or most popularly, our Professional Blush Palette (12 shades).  But, on days when you want your makeup look to especially flatter your skin tone, we’ve compiled a list of selected OFRA Pressed Blushes that look best on each skin tone, based on undertone and color.  


TIP: If you’re not sure of your undertone, look at the veins on your wrist: if they’re blue, you have a cool undertone; if they’re green, you have a warm undertone; if they’re a mix of both, you’re neutral, which means you can choose the warm or cool suggestions because both will work for your undertone.

We hope you found your perfect match! For even more variety you can layer different blushes to find other shades that work well for your skin tone and undertone. Blush is a great product to create monochromatic looks as it can double as an eyeshadow (even dabbed on the lips!) for a fool-proof minimalist makeup look.
