If any product can give your face the most life in the shortest amount of time, it's blush. Generally, fairer skins should look for pinks, mediums look best with tawny or rosy shades, yellow complexions work well with peaches and corals, and darker skin tones should try wine and burgundy shades. Of course, every face is unique, so go by your instincts. Having blush in the right shade for your skin tone is integral to receiving its benefits, so be sure to check out any prospective buys in the daylight: If the color you've chosen looks like the results of a good workout or hot shower (i.e. what your natural blush appears as), then it's the one for you. The advantages of cream blush are endless: There's no need to carry a brush—warm fingers work perfectly well, it's longer-lasting than powder versions, the blending looks more natural than most other kinds, and it's easier to blend than gel products.
