Blush Skin Types

NARS Dupe

  • For Oily/ Combination Skin: Powders work best on us! Liquid-type blushes make us look even oilier. So try Silk Natural’s mineral powder in Afterglow. It is a peachy pink color with gold shimmer. This color works for all skin tones and undertones.
  • For Dry Skin: Unlike oily skin, powders aren’t your friend. Stick to more moisturizing, liquid blushes such as 100% Pure Cream Blush in Peachy.
  • For Normal Skin: You are lucky! You can choose ANY blush type.
  • For Sensitive Skin: Follow the rule if your skin is more oily, normal, or dry but be more mindful of unknown ingredients. W3LL PEOPLE creates products free of artificial preservatives, parabens, chemicals, dyes, fragrance, silicone, dimethicone, pthalates, sulphates, petroleum, talc, bismuth oxychloride, and nanoparticles! Try their Purist Blush Powder in number 63, a luminous apricot tone.
