Blushes are a major part of every woman’s makeup kit. They illuminate, highlight and brighten our look just by making a few brushes.
However, finding the right shade of blush is an issue–more so if you’re a black woman, because there are many different skin tones, and not that many cosmetics companies target women of color.
If applied to the wrong shade of skin, blush can make your face look muddy instead of giving you that youthful glow. But if you have that problem, worry no more. Here are several blushers that are perfect for dark skin.
1. Argan Matchmaker Blush in Medium/Brown
This blush, by Josie Maran, is perfect for dark, slightly dry skin. Its rich berry color contains chameleon pigments–these are the spots in white–that are a great help in matching the shade of the blush to your own flush. In addition, it has powder infused with pure argan oil that helps in hydrating your skin.
If you like subtle, you will love using this blush by NARS Cosmetics. It toasty and warm hue enhances your natural glow. And you can use it on your lips, eyes, cheeks and body.
3. Visible Lift Color Lift Blush
By L’Oreal Paris, take it in Berry Lift. It contours and illuminates your cheekbones to give you a radiant, youthful and sun-kissed look.
Its hybrid cream to powder formula produces a silky, lightweight texture which will not settle into fine lines, and it is perfect for blending. Its translucent base will also let your skin shine through.
This is from Drew Barrymore’s cosmetic line, FLOWER. Take Raisin the Roof for the best effect. It gives you full coverage as you’ll get smooth lips and you’ll give your cheeks a romantic glow. Its formula helps it to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines on your face, keeping you looking younger.
If you’re going out at night, this is great for you. It combines plum, burgundy and party pink–which you can combine or use separately.
