The Best Blusher For Your Skin Tone: Ebony Skin

To conclude my series, The Best Blush For Your Skin Tone, l've explored the market for bright plums, oranges, deep auburns, bronzes and burn reds that flatter ebony skin tones. You gals can get away with a lot of color, and the good news is that these shades can significantly brighten your complexion. So don't be shy! Go for the bold, but remember to blend, blend, blend—or you'll risk looking like a clown!

Guerlain Divinora Bubble Blush in Rouge Lollipop ($38) is a super-smooth creamy mouse blush/tint that blends really well into skin. Its bright red-orange color gives you a radiant glow. It's formulated to have a silky feel and a velvet finish. Simply dip your fingertip into the pot and blend onto your cheekbones.

For two more blushes for dark skin,

Becca Creme Blush in Dahlia ($27) is a rich, burnt orange color that will instantly brighten up your whole face. A little of this highly pigmented product goes a long way, so start off with a gentle touch and build your blush until your reach your desired effect. These blushers are deliciously creamy, long-lasting and work well with all skin types with the exception of oily skin.

Mode Cosmetics Gleam 601 Blush Stick ($4) is a deep berry rose color that complements medium, olive and dark/ebony skin tones. What makes these blusher sticks awesome is that the color is build-able, so you can create your cheek coverage to your liking. They blend seamlessly, they feel weightless on your skin and they are made with minerals and mica to give you a gorgeous, natural-looking glow.

my fear is that i will look like a clown ... what do they mean by blend blend without rubbing the blush out?

I didn't do blush before, but now I don't go without it. My daily-never-fail is MAC Ambering Rose

I never do blush, I'm scared of the unknown but I will try it out. I guess blending IS the trick. I've always been afraid of looking like a clown.

I love Nars Exhibit X, but I've been thinking about trying a cream blush and have heard great things about the Becca line, so I'll try that one.

I love the guerlain one too even tho I have light olive skin. I think it might work for me in the winter with a dark lip.

so glad you've done the legwork for me. i don't often wear makeup, but it's good to have on-point cosmetics available when you need them.
