How to Match Blush With Your Lipstick

Do you know how to match blush with your lipstick? Choosing the right blush can be an intimidating process for many women.  Unlike clothing – where mismatched looks are sometimes encouraged – mismatched makeup does not look right on our faces.  The good news is, most people understand what looks good.  With that knowledge and this guide, you’ll be good to go the next time you are shopping for blush.

Balanced Beauty on the Lips and Cheeks

The lips and cheeks should always look harmonious.  This encourages balanced beauty on the face.  Although the colors do not need to match, they should coordinate well.  As a general rule, try to avoid mixing warm tones with cool tones.  For example, if you like berry lip colors, then a coral blush is generally not the best option for a balanced beauty look:

Instead, try something rosier or more neutral like this blush by Tarte.  It looks great with berry lip colors:

No-Fail Blush Options

If you struggle with colors and can’t tell the difference between what is warm, cool, or what looks best on your lips and cheeks, I recommend trying two products by Stila.  Both can be used on your lips and cheeks, making continuity in your makeup a no-brainer.  Their lip stains (or crushes) stay on forever and can also be used on the cheeks.  Convertible color is a cheek product that can be applied on the lips for easy makeup coordination.

Make Sure to Test on Your Skin

I also think it is important to apply products on your skin.  If you have a deeper complexion, a warm blush might look very natural on you.  This gives you the liberty to choose any lip color!  At the same time, I’ve put pink blushes on people that have turned a little orange.  While the coral color might look pretty on the cheeks, it might not look balanced if you choose a baby pink lip color with blue undertones.

When in Doubt Use Bronzer

If you are scared to pick the wrong color, don’t go without it.  You will lose out on the benefits of what I believe is one of the most important products for beauty.  Try a matte bronzer or a blush that looks similar in color.  This will provide you with a natural, and safer, blush option.
