How to Choose a Blush in the Philippines – Buying Guide

Our skin type and skin tone play a big part in choosing the right blush, so let’s take a look at what exactly is great for our skin.

Choose a Kind of Blush According to Your Skin Type

The first thing to do before finding your shade is to determine what type of blush matches your skin type.

Normal Skin: Choose According to Your Preference

Normal Skin: Choose According to Your Preference
If you have normal skin, you’re basically blessed. You don’t have to take into account the same skin concerns people with oily skin or dry skin face, so you can choose any kind of blush: powder, liquid, gel–anything!
Just make sure to match it with your foundation. To avoid streaking on powder foundation, use a powder blush; likewise, do not apply a liquid blush over a powder foundation.

With Philippine weather being humid all year round, there’s literally no way to escape shine. That’s why you’ll need a blush that will mop up excess oil or sweat on the skin. Sticking to powder blushes will ensure that you’re shine-free most of the day and that you’ll still be left with a nice flush of color by the end of it.
Gel blushes are also a good choice for oily skin since they’re water-based and oil-free. It’s just that, unlike powder blushes which can deliver a striking pop of color, gel blushes only provide a sheer flush. They’re great for those effortless, no-makeup look days.
If you do, however, really prefer a liquid or cream blush, you can try layering on translucent setting powder or powder blush to make it last longer.

Dry Skin: Get a Liquid or Cream Blush for Added Moisture

Dry Skin: Get a Liquid or Cream Blush for Added Moisture
If you have dry skin, we suggest going with a liquid or cream blush, which absorbs into the skin better; plus, it acts as an added layer of moisture. Stay clear of powder blushes, which can emphasize flakes and fine lines.
Liquid blushes are a bit tough to handle, but getting the right amount on the right spot will do the trick. Just be careful as some products are quick to dry allowing you no space for error.
Cream blushes, on the other hand, are smooth and velvety and glide on your skin easily. They also deliver a great amount of color, so a small amount can go a long way.

Find the Perfect Shade For Your Skin Tone

After you’ve figured out what type of blush you want to get, it’s time to check which color will match you best.

Fair Skin: Go for Soft Pinks, Peaches, and Light Corals; Stay Away From Vibrant Colors

Fair Skin: Go for Soft Pinks, Peaches, and Light Corals; Stay Away From Vibrant Colors
If you have fair skin, we advise you to stay away from vibrant colors that will clash with your skin tone. Instead, stick to colors that will complement your skin such as soft pinks, peaches, and light corals.
To get a little more detailed, we suggest petal pink blushes for those with cool (pink or blue) undertones and a soft peach shade for those with warm (yellow or golden) undertones.

Medium Skin: Deeper Pinks and Peaches or Mauve Shades

Medium Skin: Deeper Pinks and Peaches or Mauve Shades
If you have medium skin, we recommended you to stick to pinks and peaches. You can opt to layer them on until they’re vibrant enough or choose to go for deeper shades. Rich pinks and mauve shades can give medium skin a dramatic edge.
Berry shades will look radiant with cool medium skin, while a peachy pink (a mix between apricot and pink) one will pair well on warm medium skin.

Dark Skin: Deep Shades of Red, Orange, or Brown

Dark Skin: Deep Shades of Red, Orange, or Brown
If you have dark skin, you will need to go for deep shades of red, orange, or brown. Look for shades that are crazy bright in the packaging. These shades will leave you looking radiant instead of washed out.
For dark skin with yellow or golden undertones, we suggest a tangerine or brick-orange blush, and for those with cool undertones, we recommend a blush with a deep berry or raisin hue.

How to Apply Blush

Sadly, we can’t just apply your blush wherever we please.

How to Apply Blush for Your Face Shape

How to Apply Blush for Your Face Shape

  • RoundTo slim a round face, suck in your cheeks (basically, make a fish face) to locate your cheekbones and sweep the blush along them from the ear down towards your mouth. Avoid using a pearlized blush as it can make your face appear rounder.

  • Oval – To balance an oval face, start by applying blush from the middle of your cheeks and sweep it at an upward angle toward your earlobes.

  • Long – To shorten a long face, apply and blend the blush right below the apples of your cheeks without hitting your temples.

  • Heart – To accentuate the cheekbones of a heart-shaped face, apply the blush just below the apples of your cheeks and blend it out into your hairline up to your temples.

  • Square – To soften a square face, apply the blush just on the apples of your cheeks keeping it close to your nose while blushing in your hairline to soften the edges.

Use a Brush for Powder and Your Fingers for Cream and Liquid

Use a Brush for Powder and Your Fingers for Cream and Liquid
For powder blushes, we recommend using a wide-headed loose-powder brush that’s better at distributing color. Of course, you can use the traditional blush brush too, if that’s what you have available. Just remember to tap off any excess color to avoid splotches of color.
Cream and liquid blushes, on the other hand, are best applied with your fingers. They can work color into the skin best. You can use a makeup sponge or beautyblender to blend out liquid or cream blush in case you applied too much.

Summary

Sometimes, all you need is a pop of color on your cheeks to brighten up your complexion. Just remember to choose based on your skin type and skin tone to make the most out of your blush.
