How to Wear Coral Blush if You’re Fair Skinned

Posted on: May 17, 2012

Coral makeup always seems to enjoy a surge in popularity during the spring and summer months, but as a fair skinned gal I can sympathize with women who may be a little afraid to tackle this trendy hue. Luckily, women of any skin tone can easily pull off a coral blush – even us fair skinned ladies!

Here are a few tricks I’ve picked up along the way:

  • Choose a cream-based blush instead of a powder. Powder blush can look garish and much more harsh against fair skin. A blush with a creamier texture is easier to blend, and you can build the color to your desired intensity. I like Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Candy Coral.
  • Look for a coral blush with pink undertones. The pink will help keep the blush from looking too “orange” on cheeks.
  • Mix your blush with a dab of foundation or tinted moisturizer. The blush will still be unmistakeably coral, but it will blend into your skin tone for a sheer wash of color instead of a clown-ish effect.

These are just a few of the tips I recommend for fair skinned ladies who want to wear coral blush. Do you have any tricks I haven’t mentioned here?
