There's more to choosing beauty products than recognizing a color that your eye finds attractive. Often, as is the case with blush, you should consult your natural coloring to make the most expert selections.
Determining the shade of your natural flush is so easy, it almost seems too good to be true. BecomeGorgeous.com recommends pinching your thumb and forefinger together - the resulting color should match the color of your cheeks when you blush, making this an excellent guide for any ladies who are on the prowl for natural-looking makeup.
If a nude look is on your mind, you may also be interested in trying out a mineral makeup formula. Foundation and blush products such as Colorescience Mineral Blush Cheek Colore are known for the ease and seamlessness with which they blend into the skin, making for an alluring, photogenic finish. Use a cream highlighter to accent the cheekbones and the temples for even greater definition and fresh-faced appeal.
