    Nars Penny Lane or a light hand of Deep Throat!

    Milani’s Mai Tai blush. The beautiful coral for my skintone, perfect for everyday wear.

  3. Janice

    NARS Orgasm. It’s my go to blush for everything! Perfect flush for me always.

  4. Teddy

    Cubic by MAC

  5. MAC Melba, it’s such a gorgeous peachy pink. It always looks amazing!

  14. Avatar of Nadia A Nadia

    Nars Orgasm!

  15. Carrie Ann

    Benefit Dallas. It gives a nice natural-looking flush. It’s like a bronzer w/ a pretty rosy tint. MAC Warm Soul is another versatile blush.

  16. heidi

    I know this seems like the obvious answer but its the truth NARS Orgasm is literally perfection.

  17. Carla

    MAC Ablaze (limited edition)

  18. mac warm soul, then mac prim and proper blusher

  19. On me, All’s Good Beauty Powder Blush!

  20. Rock & Republic Shameless

  21. San

    MAC MARGIN works fr me…perfect for daily wear to work or as a lighter cheek fr darker lips and eyes in the evenings :)

  22. Julia

    Chanel Turbulent

  23. Vanessa Vetriani

    Mac Azalea Blossom

  24. valli

    Christine, I’m very curious about Korres’s makeup and I’ve checked a lot of swatches for their lip products but never found one of their bluses. Would you mind do a series of swatches for that someday? That’d be so cool!
    Love your blog, keep it up :)

  25. M@rsy

    Benefit sugar bomb and mac msf pettiecoat

  26. monika-luiza

    for me it’s well dressed by mac. it goes so well and natural with my complexion that I can even pull it off with warm summery looks

  27. Edelmc

    Mac dainty or pinch o peach

    • Kathryn

      I love both Dainty and Pinch O’ Peach. For days when I want a more matte cheek I use Pinch O’ Peach and for days when I want a shimmery pink glow I use Dainty. My skin is very fair and cool toned so these blushes really help to bring some warmth into my face while still looking very natural.

  28. Olivia

    Mac mighty aphrodite =) I love it so much I bought 3 back ups, lol

  29. Romina

    MAC Buff works great for me for almost every look! I am NC20

  30. Kathy

    For me, Stila’s Convertible Lip & Cheek color in Lilium. It looks natural on me and it goes well with any look. :)

  31. Olga

    Gingerly by Mac. I’m a NC 25..

  32. Laurina

    MAC Pink Swoon or NARS Orgasm

  33. lazeny

    I think that would be the cream blush that comes w/ the Graceful Bloom palette from Shu Uemura Mode Makeup fall collection. It’s lovely worn w/ both warm and cool colors.

  34. Jadyn

    First for a slightly flushed look: elf tickled pink
    A more dramatic natural flush: NARS cactus flower
    Both=AMAZING

  35. For me it is the classic Nars Orgasm!

  36. Avatar of Emily Emily

    Either Nars Orgasm or Mac Dainty!

  37. I would say it is Maybelline Mineral Blush in true peach! Love that!

  38. Lauren

    I think NARS Amour is very universal. I feel that it has enough golden peach to work with everything. If I’m wearing a pink outfit, it looks pinkier, I love it!

  39. Crissy

    MAC’s blushbaby, my favorite :D

  40. Abby

    NARS Amour (basically Orgasm without the shimmer) or theBalm’s Down Boy!

  41. Avatar of Lily LiLy

    NARS orgasm , goes with everything

  42. Avatar of Alexis Alexis

    I have to go with MAC Blooming. It’s not too cool or warm and can kind-of transform to work with any eye/lip combo. It also gives a really nice glow to the skin :).

  43. Valerie Brower

    NARS dolce vita

  44. Megan

    For me, that would be MAC mineralize blush in Love Joy. I love it! It’s just a great toasty brown color. Perfect for my NW45 skintone.

  45. SueG

    Cargo Tonga. The perfect pinky-beige.

  46. Miranda

    I love the new Physicians Formula Happy Booster blush in Natural. Mostly because it’s really cute and I always want to use it no matter what look I’m going for lol

    • Laurina

      I just got the Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder in Beige and so far it like it. I have been thinking about getting the blush too!

  47. Bahar

    MAC Gingerly

  48. anonymous

    MUFEHD 8 PDA just looks like you’re blushing naturally

    similar: dallas, estee lauder nude rose

    (all recreate the look of blood underneath the peachy/orange/beige of skin)

  49. Tracie in NC

    I wear Bare Escentuals Glee all.the.time because it looks just like my natural flush. Actually I layer it over a little bit of Warmth (or a lot if it’s summer).

  50. Avatar of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    Sugarbomb for neutral colors.
    MAC Oh So Fair for cool looks.

  51. SJean

    I like “Prism” by MAC

  52. Emma

    covergirl and olay cream blush in lush berry!

  53. Lisa

    NYX Pecan! I love it & this compliments my NC45 skintone perfectly

  54. I think the blush from E.L.F’s Blush/Bronzer Duo goes with anything! At least it does for me. :D

  55. diana

    chanel tweed pink. it always looks good… i want more of the tweed blushes because this one is so perfect.

  56. mac dainty, all the time..

  57. Mallory

    maybelline dream mousse blush in rose!

  58. lisa

    Shu Uemura M44.
    It’s a natural matte peachy color.
    works well with my tanned skin.
    hooray!

  59. Tiffany S. Dhein-Guptar

  60. Smashbox’s Bare – the best.

  61. Angie

    mac instant chic and benefit sugarbomb

  62. ak

    MAC Saffron eyeshadow or Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep.

  63. Rachel

    NARS Deep Throat–the density with which I apply it varies with the look, but it’s been perfection for me.

  64. Katie

    MAC blushbaby

  65. Minna

    Joe Blascos Camber mauve.It is not mauve or peach,something between.Unique colour,no dupe for that! It goes with any eyeshadow/lipstick,summer&winter.Looks nothing like the swatch at online stores!

  66. Alice

    elf peachy keen

  67. gaye

    chanel number 15 goes with every look and also I think its the best choice for nude makeup

  68. Summor

    Probably Pinch O peach by MAC

  69. Ny

    Nars lovejoy. You can be heavy handed and it doesn’t matter. Looks good on all skin tones, it’s my go-to blush!

  70. Susan

    MAC instant chic! I know it’s LE but I’m glad I was able to find it! Goes with everything year round!

  71. Avatar of Jen Jen

    MAC’s Hipness or Melba

  72. Sara

    Mac Dainty or Mac Tenderling.

  73. NARS Deep Throat is very versitale but I wouldn’t wear it with red lips though.. MAC Peachykeen goes with everything ! =)

  74. Avatar of Angela Angela

    i love this website. thanks for all the good info. christine and everybody else :)

  75. Niki

    Wow, this is a tough one, so I am going to say La Femme’s Golden Sunset which is peachy-coral-red color with a golden micro-shimmer and gives me a glow from within look.

  76. Avatar of Natalie Natalie

    NARS Sex Appeal or MAC’s the Perfect Cheek (sadly, LE but I stocked up!!)

  77. Avatar of Carolina Lilastar

    I have two, NARS orgasm (as pretty much everyone else here) and Benefit CORALista.. weird no one has mentioned that one (or maybe I missed it?)

  78. Isabela

    I really like MAC’s Fleur Power, and I use it almost every day. However, when I’m wearing a smokey or a very colorful eye, I go for Mocha by MAC.

  79. Avatar of Marianne Mar

    MAC Peachykeen or sheer layer of Coralista…
    They warm up my skin wonderfully without looking overdone or doll-like.

  80. brittni

    im mac nc50. love format, light over dark, sweet as cocoa, superdupernatural, sunbasque and nw 50 pressed powder to contour

  81. MochaKnitster

    MAC’s Warm Soul Mineralized Blush goes with everything.

  82. Katie

    Yes! Since I’m so pale, I need a daily fix of NARS Penny Lane or Chanel blush in Be-Bop (long discontinued).

  83. Minna

    I can order Nars only online.What colour would suit NW15-20,cool/neutral undertones,europian,dark eyes&hair? I want that natural flush:).Chanel irrèelle blush 25 in love is beutiful,cant find it anymore,so special occasions(?) nowadays for me.

  84. Even though its on the darker side, MAC Desert Rose is my go to, and it actually works well with all the skintones I’ve ever done makeup for!
