You know what blush looks amazing on brown skin? Orange blush! That’s right ! Orange Blush. Years ago I was asking one of my friends to suggest a blush for me to try and she suggested that I try NYX orange cream blush. This was before I became a makeup artist and before I had even worn blush. I thought it was crazy but I purchased it anyway and I have been in love since then! At this time I was terrified of blush, and not sure how it would look me, but I braved it and dabbed a little on my cheeks to complete a makeup look.What I basically discovered is that orange blush is the perfect match for darker skin, although I will say it truly looks good on all shades! It gives a warm, healthy, and refreshing glow to the skin. Like when picking a red lipstick, remember that orange blush come in many undertones and finding the perfect one for you will just take a little experimenting. A tip I would suggest when picking an orange blush is to pick one that is the opposite the color of the undertones in your skin. Because looking at orange can be intimidating, I suggest going to Sephora or ulta and trying the product on to see how it will look on you before you buy it.
