Ready To Blush: 3 Ways To Wear Blush On Deep/Dark Skin Tones

Spring is here! What better way to add depth to your post-hibernation complexion than with blush? Blushes for deeper skin tones can be challenging. If I’m honest, my first attempts at including blush in my routine were a jump scare. Top beauty brands like Danessa Myricks Beauty, One/Size, Ami Colé, and Haus Labs by Lady Gaga have all launched blushes in preparation for spring. This is everything you need to know about applying blush to deep/dark skin tones this season!

The type of blush matters; deciding whether you want a cream or powder formulation makes a difference. Cream blush is generally more pigmented and hydrating, which allows for more control with product placement. Perfect for newbies and dry skin types. Powder blush, on the other hand, is more transparent and buildable.

The first way you can incorporate blush is as an all-over eyelid color or concentrated as a liner. This placement is whimsical and fun while keeping your features soft.

For deeper skin tones, complementary blush shades are king! Deep mauve and berry tones are my go-to shades. However, I've found that peaches and pinks are great additions for transition shades on the high points of the cheeks.

The second way you can incorporate blush is as a replacement for your bronzer or on top of your bronzer. For this placement, focus on sweeping the blush upward towards the temple.

The last tip is to have fun and experiment with placement on your face shape. Try adding blush to the center of the lips to tie in a full look or add depth to a simple gloss.

Blac Chyna Opens Up About Her Initial Fear To Share Her Spiritual Journey With Others

Watching Angela “Blac Chyna” White’s transformation in real-time has truly been a sight to see. It wasn’t that long ago that she announced that she was reversing her cosmetic surgeries in an effort to go back to who she was before the world came to know her as Blac Chyna. In previous interviews, she stated that she was dissolving her facial and lip fillers, removing her breast implants, and getting a butt reduction, as well as removing the dimple piercings that enhanced her fame and controversial tattoos.

In a recent Tamron Hall interview, the mother of two said that she has “fully recovered” from the procedures. She is also celebrating one year of sobriety and opened up about being worried about how her new journey would be received by others.
