The Black Girl's Guide To Blush

Finding the right blush is a little like dating. Some you can tell aren't going to work right off the bat. Others come on strong and fade quickly. And a few just make you feel like a clown. But when you discover the one, it’s a total game changer — especially if you have dark skin.
The perfect blush can totally transform your face, and there are plenty of pigmented shades on the market that beam on medium to deep complexions. If you’re still searching for the most eligible blush, or if you just want to add a new one to your collection for fall, we asked the experts for the formulas they swear by for their famous clients.
From brazen berry to peach nudes (that never look pasty), you’re bound to find your perfect match, ahead.
