Fair skin

If you have a porcelain complexion with veins that appear blue or purple, go for a light pink shade like Nearly Neutral or Nearly Apricot. These will add just a hint of color without looking overdone.

Light skin

For skin that tans minimally and burns easily, a light mauve like Nearly Mauve or a peachy shade like Nearly Peach will complement your skin tone nicely.

Medium skin

Do you tan moderately and sometimes burn? Shades of dusty rose, soft raspberry or light coral like Nearly Berry, Nearly Raspberry or Nearly Coral will give your cheeks a natural-looking flush.

Deep skin

For skin that tans very deeply, rich shades of copper, mahogany or plum like Nearly Copper, Nearly Mahogany or Nearly Plum will look stunning. With Rare Beauty, you can find your perfect match and get a customized flush made just for you.Choosing only one will now be the challenge.

Tips for Applying Rare Beauty Blush for a Natural, Healthy Glow

To get a natural, healthy glow with Rare Beauty blush, follow these tips:

Start light and build up gradually.

Rare Beauty blushes are highly pigmented, so start with a light touch. Swipe your blush brush once or twice over the pan and tap off any excess. Add another layer if you want more color. It’s easier to build up intensity than take it away!

Pick a color that goes well with your skin tone

The wide range of shades means there’s an option for every complexion. If you have a fair skin tone, try a light pink like Hope or Peace. For medium skin, mauve and rose shades like Joy or Faith are perfect. Deep skin tones can rock richer colors like Courage or Empathy. 

Use a fluffy blush brush for the most natural effect

A large, loose brush will deposit just a touch of color and blend seamlessly into your skin. Small, dense brushes can lead to an uneven, blotchy finish. Gently sweep and buff the color onto the apples of your cheeks using small circular motions. Blend up towards your hairline so there are no visible edges or lines.

Set with some translucent powder

If you want your blush to last all day, lightly dust some colorless powder over the top with a powder puff or powder brush. This will set the cream formula and prevent fading, especially on oilier skin types. Be very light-handed, as too much powder can make your blush look cakey.

With these tips, you’ll be rocking a natural, lit-from-within glow in no time. Play around by layering different Rare Beauty blush shades to create custom looks.
