For me, it’s a lot of trial and error.  I love coral and peach blushes with blues, greens, and teals–as well as pinks and golds, depending on the overall look.  Browns and neutrals go well with most blushes, and if you have a very light eye and lip, a heavier, darker cheek works nicely.  I love beige, brown, and nude shades to pair with neutral and smoky looks.  Cooler-toned blushes like plums and cotton candy pinks work better for me when I pair them with a cooler-toned lip (and tend to coordinate with gray, pink, and plum eyeshadows).
