Mauve, Orange, and Bronze, Oh Yes!

Blush is the thing right now. If you haven’t found your best blush to give your best glow, you’re definitely missing out. It’s the one makeup product that really can give the illusion of a made up face that isn’t. But, for some Black women, blush still isn’t a key factor in their beauty routine.


Let us be the first to tell you the top 3 blushes every woman should have, no matter what.


A mauve colored blush

You need to find your best pale blue-purple hue for your complexion. It’s imperative and necessary. The right shade of this color will warm your skin, while giving it a sultry tone. We rave over the Sephora Collection blush in dark purple. The point is to find one that looks like your skin has been kissed by berries and the sun at the same time.


The right orange for your complexion

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: orange blush is perfect for brown skin. If you’re looking for a natural glow that isn’t overdone, you’re looking for your best orange blush. This may take trial and error, or a quick visit to the makeup counter. But it will be completely worth it in the end.


A bronze blush for a golden tint

Because who doesn’t want to look like an Egyptian goddess? Finding your best-bronzed blush will only help you attain that goal. Apply on the top of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and even lightly on your forehead for maximum effect.
