The Right Blush for Caramel Skin Tones

What's the best way to make your caramel skin flush beautifully and naturally? While there are a range of caramel-colored skin tones, nearly all look terrific in vibrant blush colors.

Warm Corals and Pinks

One of the most flattering on golden skin is a warm peach blush; we love Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Medium Coral. For something on the pink end of the spectrum, caramel tones generally should stay away from anything too light or chalky, which might wash you out. Instead, try a rose, like that in NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Silky Rose, which is a matte, plummy pink.

Going Deeper

Want something a bit deeper? Opt for a delicious berry, like that found in L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Berry Lift.

Although we often think caramel skin tones don't need bronzer, a combination of peach and bronze tones looks gorgeous and can bring out cheekbones. Go for something like Urban Decay Naked Flushed in Naked, or Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace, which are bronzer, blush and highlighter trios.
