Look at Your Skin Tone One shade does not fit all when it comes to your makeup, especially your blush. While your friend might a bright pink or orange hue, it could look ridiculous on you if you have a totally different complexion. So before you choose a blush color, look at the tone of your face. And don’t look when you already have makeup on, because you’ll never get an accurate assessment. Look at your skin first thing in the morning, before you have any product on your face, before you get flushed from your workout and before you step outside into the sun.
