Your peach skin tone gives you a naturally warm glow, but the wrong shade of blush can instantly wash out this fair hue. Paired poorly you can even end up looking sallow or sick. Instead of warm orangey peach, think lightly dusted English rose and you’ll be on the right track. Keep your face looking lovely all day long by carefully selecting the right shade of blush to give your face a healthy radiance.
Pinch your cheeks, go for a run or bend over and put your head between your legs for a few minutes. No, this isn’t the newest exercise fad – it’s a quick and easy way to narrow down the best shade of blush for your skin tone. The flush of your cheeks after one of these activities should give you some inspiration for your blush shade.
Browse blush colors in the same type of hue you found in Step 1. In general, peach skin tones look best with a light, rosy pink. If your skin is a bit tanner, a dusty rose may be best while fair winter skin looks better with sheer champagne pink. Avoid tones that are themselves peach as this can make peach-colored skin look too orangey.
Select a new blush shade for each season. A touch of cream blush looks best with dewy summer skin while doll-faced cheeks with a powder blush are charming in winter. Stick with pinks for your peach skin and opt for bronzers that feature a pink tint as well, in the warmer months.
Set your blush with a translucent powder to keep everything in place.
Opt for a lipstick that matches the hue of your blush, but is just a few shades lighter or darker. Keeping these colors in the same family will make your overall look more cohesive.
