How to Match Lipstick with Blushes
Hi Everyone, 🙂
I have been wanting to do this post from past few days. Finally got down to doing it. Isn’t it always confusing what blush to match with which lipstick. I follow just one rule – match your lipstick shade with the blush shade. It does not have to be the exact shade. You can pick a tone of your lip color and work your blush color around that. And this works almost always. well, there are always exceptions but this tip is pretty much fool proof.
Bright Pink Lipsticks : I love using pink lipsticks for day time. I feel they add freshness to the face . For day time, I’d go with the light pink blush just to get a bit of glow on my cheeks. For evening I’d go with a brighter shade of a blush, preferably shimmery.
A soft Pink Lipstick : Even if I am going for a day time MLBB pink shade , I’d still go for a light pink blush. For day time I like that ‘naturally glowing’ face as opposed to a full on makeup look. And a soft pink blush works. For me I prefer the cooler tones but you can pick warmer toned blushes as well if that works for you.

Neutral Lipsticks : With neutral /N*de lipsticks I prefer coral or peach blushes. And I go a bit heavy with my blushes with a pale mouth. The same goes with brown lipsticks. I prefer to use peach or tawny shades with brown lip colors.
Orange Lipsticks : With orange blushes, it’s mostly coral but I don’t mind going the orange or neutral blush way as well.
Coral Lipsticks : With coral lipsticks I like apricot and coral shades of blushes.
Red Lipsticks : I kinda took my own test and trials to figure out what works the best with red lipsticks. I personally just stick with bronzer or a shade such as MAC Margin blush, which pretty much is a highlighter with a hint of color in it. Well, you may definitely apply a deep red blush with it..just so softly.
Bright Coral Lipsticks : I kinda like to mix a pink and a coral blush or I just go the coral way. I personally don’t like just pink blushes with deep coral lip colors. But you can always experiment and see what suits your skin tone more. 🙂
PS : please refer original reviews for the exact product shades. Had a very bad lighting throughout the day. 🙁
