The Best Orange Blush for Your Skin ToneJuly 09, 2019
Dark skin tones pair perfectly with orange — particularly deeper, richer shades. Lancôme Blush Subtil Powder Blush in French Blush is at the top of our list. It’s a complex orange shade with a silky finish and zero shine. It practically glides on the skin, and stays put for hours on end.
Light skin tones benefit from peachy-orange shades that add a hint of color without overwhelming the complexion. We recommend opting for a liquid option like Giorgio Armani A-Line Liquid Blush in Peach, a wearable, water-based formula that can be blended in with your fingers for an ultra natural look.
Medium skin tones often have a naturally “toasted” effect, which is why we recommend going all in with a vibrant (but blendable) orange hue. Cue Lime Crime Softwear Blush Soft Matte in Firewall, a sunset orange shade that offers a soft matte finish.
Finding the right orange for olive skin can be difficult due to the green-ish undertones — but a coral orange shade like NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Cheek Tint in Detox Me is a perfect fit. The hydrating formula is sheer but buildable and leaves skin with a soft, natural glow.
