Often times when I meet clients with a pink undertone to their skin (as opposed to an olive or yellow skintone), they naturally have a rosiness to their cheeks and do not always like the idea of wearing blush.
As a makeup artist, I find blush to be an absolute necessity in completing a look, whether it is a natural daytime look or for a special occasion. Why? Blush instantly makes the skin look more youthful, dewy, and attractive. Everyone looks good with a little blush!
Even those with a pink undertone should wear blush but the key is using a shade that is not too bright or has too much pink to it. I always choose a blush that appears almost colorless or one that might seem like it won’t show up too much because on someone with a pink undertone, even a sheer or very natural looking blush will show up because their natural rosiness to their complexion will shine through.
The best blush I recommend for someone who is fair and with a pink undertone is MAC’s “Sincere” blush. This has a matte finish and shows up without looking too bright. It gives just a hint of color while also adding some warmth to the face.
Fantastic write-up! I learned so much and it makes so much sense. Thank you for sharing your expert knowledge!
