Peach colored blush adds a warm radiance and healthy glow to any complexion! From powders, creams, and everything in between, this is a roundup of the best peach blushes.
I’ve compiled TWELVE of my favorite peach blush colors, each one carefully selected to fit a specific skin type and tone.
As much as I love my pink blush, come summer I’m ready to indulge in all things peach! In addition to cobblers and margaritas, summer’s sweetest fruit is also inspiration for the most universally flattering color for blush.
From soft peachy beiges, bright peachy pinks, and deep peachy corals, the color possibilities are endless. With so many variations in shades and undertones, there’s literally a peach blush for everyone!
If you’re ready to sport this seasonally inspired blush, my peach blush roundup will make color and formula selection a snap! I love talking blushes with you!
Finding the right blush formula is just as important as choosing the right color. Dry, combination, oily, and sallow skin all present their own unique challenges. The best blush formula should enhance what Mother Nature gave you, supplementing your skin care needs.
Why You’ll Love Peach Colored Blush!
Peachy blushes are super versatile, acting as both blush and bronzer in one. Fair complexions who find typical bronzers harsh and muddy, may love peach blush as a bronzer alternative. For warm and tan skin tones, peachy cheeks are a go-to for a year round, natural flush.
On darker skin tones, light beige and shimmery taupe-peach shades can be used for creating a natural highlighting effect.
Peach’s endless combinations of warm and neutral pigments vary from soft beiges to vibrant peachy corals.
Frequently Asked Questions
Warm and olive complexions can claim peach as their go-to color since it’s gorgeous with their golden and neutral undertones. But there’s no hard and fast rules in makeup. With so many peachy options, it’s truly a universal color!
Peach is a range of warm analogous shades, mainly consisting of reds and yellows. Think of it as the gradient hues on a peach skin, and not just a pastel orange. The vast options of peachy hues are due to how much red or yellow is added. A classic peach is an equal amount of pink and yellow (or red, white, and yellow). When peach has more yellow, it becomes apricot in color. Likewise, when more red is added, you’ll get a coral peach blush.
Nudes, peachy pinks, and classic red lips always compliment a peachy flush. Choosing one with blue undertones adds a nice contrast to peachy cheeks.
Absolutely! Peachy cool pinks with blue undertones and peachy taupes with green undertones soften peach’s warmth, complimenting cooler skin tones.
Which Blush Formula is Best For My Skin Type?
- Dry/Combination Skin – Blush can be another tool for combating dry cheeks. Look for cream formulas filled with humectants and silicones which trap and lock in moisture, giving the skin a smooth appearance.
- Oily Skin – Lightweight, water based formulas such as gels, tints, and stains are perfect for this skin type. Powder formulas with talc are great at absorbing excess oil.
- Normal Skin – This skin type can get away with almost any formula. (Lucky!) Powder options are easy to apply and liquid blushes give a natural glow!
- Sallow Skin – Lifestyle improvements will eventually ward off sickly looking skin, but the right blush can help you “fake it till you make it”. Shimmery blushes formulated with mica give sallow cheeks an instant boost!
