Best blush shade for medium-olive toned skin

  1. im a newbie when it comes to everything make up and now i'm on a quest to find a really great shade of blush for me. im looking for a natural flushed look. if you guys can help me out, i'd really appreciate it! i just got Prism from MAC this past weekend and so far, i like the way it looks on me. but there might be another out there that might look better....i wear MAC's studio fix C40 for reference. any tips on proper blush application are also welcome! thanks guys!
     
  2. Hi, I wear Mac NC 35 and I like Mac Orgasm. You might be darker than me though, so I don't know if it would be too light for you.

  3. yeah the Orgasm is a little too light for my skin tone....thanks for the suggestion tho.
     
  4. what about Nars Tag Mahal or MAC Pinch Me, those would be really nice on your skin tone. Go light on the tag mahal
     
  5. Chanel's Enchanteress is really pretty and I think that would be nice for your skin tone.
     
  6. A red toned bronzer-blush like Guerlain's Terracota Blush & Sun in shade 02.
     
  7. thanks!! i will check these out!!
     
  8. Laura gellar baked blush n brighten
     
  9. Coral blushes works very well on your skin tone. You can try Bobbi Brown's blushes and pot rouge, particularly Calypso Coral or Apricot. Benefit Coralista is also nice. Or if you like something a little similar to MAC Prism, you can try Bobbi Brown's Blush in Tawny.
     
  10. I would say don't get fixed on thinking you have to limit yourself to a particular hue. I wear Mac Pink Swoon and it actually gives me a really nice flushed look (I would be NC50 in Studio Fix fluid or NW43 in the powder form). You can probably do a light touch with really pigmented Reds, Pinks and Oranges such as NARS Taj Mahal, MAC Full Fushia, or NARS Love Joy. You'd be surprised how just one touch on your brush with blending it out will give you a natural flushed look. You can probably also do Berry colors like MAC Razin or Peachy colors too.

    If you want more concentrated color, use a blush brush where the bristles are tightly packed. And, if you want a more washed or more flushed look use a fluffy brush.
