Want to appear tickled pink, yet find you’re looking more like sallow Sally? We all desire a rosy glow, but with the decision to don a faux cherub-like flush comes choosing the appropriate hue to bring out that natural-looking mantle.

Says Make-up Designory instructor John Bailey, “Fair and medium complexions should use pinks and peaches. The key is to control the intensity, keeping the color soft.” He suggests slowly building up color, then applying powder over the blush, paying particular attention to the edges.

For olive complexions, he warns against choosing tricky mauve colors. “These tend to make rich olive complexions gray and sallow in appearance,” he says. He recommends intense rusty or burnt orange hues—they may seem bold in the compact or tube, but gray down when blended with dark complexions, providing a natural-looking flush.

When choosing between creams or powders, Bailey points out the benefits of both. “Cream blushes are easier to control in both intensity and blending, yet powdered blushes are the most convenient,” he says.

So, take a look at these blushing products and help your clients go for the faux flush!
