If shopping for new blush has ever made you think, Wait, I've got a marker like that, you're definitely not alone. After all, being faced with a bright orange, red, or even purple choice can be daunting — especially considering how pigmented these look in their packaging. But, if your skin tone is dark, not only do bright shades still seem bright, there's another concern that pale blushes will be a different kind of bright on your complexion.
Generally speaking, bolder shades in a stick, compact, or bottle will also result in bolder shades on skin, but even ones that may seem light at first glance can be built up without added ashiness. It's up to you whether you want to opt for a blush that is the opposite of your undertone — think orangey for cool undertones and something purplish for warmer ones — or if you want to just play into a neutral undertone with a color that looks barely there at all.
We've picked 16 different blushes from Sephora that would look especially fabulous on olive to deep complexions as a starting off point. Check them out ahead, and see which one pops out at you, too.
