All rich and warm shade will suit well. For a natural look a deep peach/honey or a rich pink color is perfect to make your skin appear hot and shiny. You can use both powder or cream blush to make your cheek alive

You have a dark skin type ?


Don’t be afraid to use blush when you have a dark skin type. It gives your skin much more power and presence. For a natural look you can use warm brown or light berry shade. If you want your cheek to pop-up more you can add a strawberry/strong red shade. With those shades, you will look like the princess Vaiana from Disney. We recommend you to use a matte cream blush so it will smooth with your skin tone. Perfect to create a natural look.
