Cover Girl Not Clown

pink blush on dark skin

Adding blush to your everyday makeup routine can enhance or create desirable, high, gorgeous cheek bones whilst giving your face that extra glow. It is almost impossible to limit one shade of blush to suit one particular skin tone, which is why I am often baffled when I hear people say “Dark skin girls should not wear light blushes.” High fashion models and celebrities often wear blushes that are not normally what we would see on a day to day basis; but it still looks great. There are plenty of blushes out there to suit more than one skin tones. It’s all about applying the right amount (which varies from person to person) as its easy to go from cover girl to clown.

Here are some of the classic  colours which are great for pretty much all darker skin tones:

  • Kerry Washington -Fushia/Pink

Hope you found this post helpful, Don’t be scared to try new and different blushes
