The Best Blusher For Your Skin Tone: Olive Skin

Welcome to part four of The Best Blusher For Your Skin Tone. In this installment, we are exploring blush for olive-colored skin. You lucky girls are the ones with the gorgeous and natural golden glow all year round! For this type of skin, petal pinks and deep peachy apricots give you a subtle warmth. Here are a few of my suggestions—and by all means, please leave comments and share your own favorites with everyone!

Pantina Cheek Sweeps ($5.50) aren't out yet, but you can expect to see these shimmery and mess-free blushers this fall in two shades: Tru Bliss and Radiance.

For olive skin tones, I'd go with Tru Bliss. It's a bright pink/coral hue that glides on easily and blends flawlessly into the skin, leaving a slight iridescent trail and a gorgeous flush to your cheeks.

Benefit Sheer Cream Blusher in Hush ($18) is an ultra-smooth, creamy, bright yet sheer pinky-apricot color suitable for olive skin.

With just a little bit applied right to the apples of your cheeks, you can create a very warm effect. With a touch more, you can really give your face some pizzazz! Blend upwards and outwards (towards your hairline) using your fingertips.

DuWop Blushbooster in Mango ($22) is a powder blush with a little bit of shimmer for a natural and radiant glow. You can either wear it alone or on top of another blush for a highlighting effect. It is available in four shades, but Mango (pictured) is a shimmery apricot which would look fantastic on olive skin tones.
