Although we all may have an idea of what we think peach blush is in our minds, the category is more diverse than you think! There are several different shades of blush that are considered under the umbrella of “peach”. This can make selecting one a difficult task, but there is no need for fear! We have got you covered with our picks of the 15+ best peach blushes that will flatter a variety of skin tones!
WHAT SHADE IS BEST FOR ME?
We think you can rock whatever shade you want but if you are looking for some guidance, choosing one based on your skin tone can be helpful. Different shades of peach can complement and enhance different skin tones.
For those with fairer skin, a coral blush can work wonders! While orange-heavy blushes can often weigh your face down instead, going for a lighter coral can help to warm the face up for a soft and glowy finish. If you have a cooler undertone, looking for something with hints of pink can be helpful as well whereas warmer skin tones can try a darker peach.
For medium skin tones, apricot blushes are a great option. Brown blushes can often be too close to contour in colour, therefore, opting for a beige-peach can be the key! This can help to create some definition without too much of a contrast between the two areas. If you have cooler undertones, apricot blushes with a bit of pink in them can be flattering whereas warmer skin tones can stick with the darker apricot shade.
For darker skin tones, a deep orange can be best suited for you. Darker peach blushes can be stunning on darker skin tones and add a new dimension to your look. Finding one with a hint of gold can also serve as a substitute for highlighter. Additionally, those with warmer undertones could try a bit of a purple hue in their blush, whereas cooler undertones can be best served with the rich darker peach shade.
