The Best Blushers For Dark Skin Tones

Finding the right blush for your complexion can be tricky, unlike other base products that you can blend away, applying blusher incorrectly or working with the wrong formula or colour can massively impact your overall look and can look chalky and overdone on darker complexions. 

However, get blusher right and you can upgrade your look and bring everything together. Understanding tones and formulas is what will make blush look flawless on brown skin, and playing with plums, peachy nudes, deep reds and bronzes will complement the skin tone. In a mix of shimmer brick palettes, powders, and liquid blushes, this selection will set you up for a win when it comes to buying a blusher for a darker skin tone.
