Next up, here are five blushes to consider if you have a medium skin tone. I tried to include different price points, finishes, and undertones, but there are so many blushes available, there are many more worth trying. I’m a firm believer that we can wear whatever we desire, whether or not it is supposedly “suitable” on us or not–there’s no harm in trying :) Please share any suggestions in the comments!

  1. theBalm Cabana Boy — a medium-dark, cool-toned plum with a satin finish
  2. Kevyn Aucoin Neolita — a rich, berry-red with a satin finish
  3. Makeup Geek Summer Fling — bright pop of orange with a matte finish
  4. Clinique Peach Pop — a pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen
  5. Tom Ford Love Lust — a brightened, coral with a frosted finish

A few of the new coral blushes that I’ve recently reviewed, plus one long-time favorite that I always reach for when I want a coral blush. I am a fiend for coral blush, I’ll have you know! :)

  1. Becca Lychee/Opal — a shimmery, light coral that can be used as a highlighter or blusher
  2. Clinique Peach Pop (02) — a medium coral with a luminous finish
  3. Tom Ford Love Lust — a warm, orange-coral with a luminous finish (if there could only be one coral in my life, this would be it)
  4. IT Pretty in Peony — a rich, vibrant coral-pink
  5. NYX Pinched — a coral-pink with a soft shimmer

Do you go bolder or subtler during the summer for your blush? I find it just depends on whether I’ve reached for brighter lip colors or not; if I go bright on the lips, I usually go quite light on the cheeks and vice versa. Here are some of my current recommendations if you’re in the market for a fun, pink-hued blush this summer:

  1. YSL Fuchsia Desinvolte (01) — a fuchsia pink that can be applied as a light stain or as a deep blush (bonus: works well on lips, too!0)
  2. theBalm Down Boy — a cool-toned, light-medium pink with a mostly matte finish
  3. Clinique Berry Pop (03) — cool-toned, raspberry pink with a luminous finish
  4. MAC Lovecloud — a light-medium, warm-toned pink
  5. Milani Bella Rosa (11) — a vibrant, pink-red with a matte finish
