The Fab Four Blush Colors - The Basic Colors You Need

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

If you are downsizing or want just the basic colors in makeup then this is the post for you.  For eyeshadows, I posted the Fab Four Eyeshadows everyone should have.  Now, I am posting the Fab Four Blushes everyone should own.

Blush has become a makeup product that has strayed as far from the origins of the simple red, pink, and coral colors which dominated years back.  There is nothing wrong with wearing purple, neon, or even brown blush.  But, if you want to keep your makeup life simple, then choose these four colors.

Light  Complexions

Light Complexions

If you are anywhere from porcelain to medium in skin tone, the following colors would work for you--Amber, Peach, Peach Pink, and Pink.

Dark Complexions

Dark Complexions

If you have tan to anything darker, the following colors would be good for you--Brandy, Burnt Orange, Flamed Rose, and Wineberry.

These blushes run from warm to cool which everyone needs regardless of skin undertones.  Why? Seasonal changes, travel, your own personal feelings, and many other reasons.

Seasonal is a good one because nature's lighting can go from warm to cool which also affects and bounces off your skin tone making some blush colors look great during the winter, but in the summer it just doesn't work or look right.

Travel can affect makeup colors too.  The landscape and just the very feel of the environment can make certain colors not feel or look right.  I know if I go to a cooler or a place that is more prone to cooler (blue) lighting, I go for warmer tones.

Personality can also be a reason.  Wearing the same color over and over can get quite boring.  Sometimes, shaking it up and changing can bring a new perspective!

Here is how the various colors may look on the various skin tones.

Light - Amber to Peach

Light - Peach Pink to Pink

Dark - Brandy to Orange

Dark - Rose to Wine

Those are the basic four colors you should have.  Now, whether you choose to collect several from different brands is up to you.  Just remember, these are the colors that will work with everything and every color wardrobe and makeup collection you have.

Hope this helps some of you.
