I have a very rosy red, medium complexion but when I take makeup quizzes, I find that rose-colored and pink blushes are always recommended for me. That seems silly considering I already have red undertones! I don't use a green corrector simply because I don't really have time for that step in my daily makeup routine and I often forgoe blush altogether, but does someone have an idea for a brand and shade that I might try which could give me a little warmth (to counteract the red)? I'm on a tight budget right now, too... Thanks for your input!
actually, i know this sounds crazy, but i think that the makeup quizzes are right. Because of your fair skin, the red undertones really help! you need a blush that will mirror your natural flush. depending on your hair color, you have different options.
Medium/dark hair- Medium peach, pink, and mauve shades. for a sun kissed look, use a shimmery pale golden blush.
light hair- pale peaches and pinks are good daytime options. and for more intense colors, try apricots and mauves
aly7, thanks for your input! Maybe I'm over-stressing too much... Perhaps I'll try a peachy shade (as you suggested). Thanks! Any cheaper brands/products you suggest?
i love e.l.f. everything. they have mineral blushes for 5 dollars and natural radiance blushers for a dollar. you can get these at www.eyeslipsface.com or target. also, i know this sounds insane. but i always have 10 mins to get ready in the morning, so i dont apply blush...just shadow, mascara, chapstick, and liner. so i pinch my cheeks right in the middle for the perfect glow!

Great advice Aly7! I don't put on blush anymore these days. Primarily because I couldn't find a shade that I loved and I got lazy. I recently got into cheek stains (Tarte makes a great one) in all sorts of shades. I use a rosy one and it adds the perfect amount of pink to my cheeks. I feel too, maybe you should try a tinted moisturizer. Neutrogena makes a good one as does Physicians Formula (in the organic wear line and it's affordable).
Thanks, ladies! I'll try BOTH of your suggestions... and hey, if I can skimp on blush, YAY! That's one less thing to contend with in a rushed morning!

I love the warm coral types of colors, they're natural looking to medium skin tones. I don't think the pinky ones look good on anyone.
