    i wear a nude-ish blush with green shadow like tenderling. with browns, i wear pinks like well dressed and with purples i’ll wear a blush like pink swoon :)

  2. Rachel W.

    no matter what eyeshadow color i wear i always wear either a light pink or light coral blush

    they just look best with my skin tone

  3. I’m gonna be all specific and go with: green = NARS Madly (esp if I’m doing a red or orange lip with it), browns = Milani Red Vino with Too Faced Candlelight highlighter (love it!) OR NARS Lustre, purples = NARS Angelika (I find the vibrant pink accents the purple so very well) with Tokidoki Kabuki highlighter.

    I was in Vegas in May for my birthday armed with a $250 gift certificate I was determined to spend at the MUF botique at Sephora. I spent…nothing. No one would help me, I felt unwelcome and in the way. I’m glad your experience was different, mine left me sad and frustrated.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that!

    • Joli

      The Sephora right by the Venetian right? I was there this past March and I could not believe how rude they were! I still love Vegas thought :)

      I have had lousy service at a # of in store Sephoras as well too. it’s either they bug me too much – or there is no one who has a clue about my questions on skin care products and I know way more than they do! Then to get through check out can be a night-mare.I feel like cattle going to slaughter always – no one ever takes time with you at check out to see if you found everything…take time to order on line if they are out of stock on an item you came in for. They seem to hire for style/look and not so much brains or making sure they have good inservice ongoing with products. There should always be a skin care know it all in the shop. If I am going to pay $100 for a cream I want to talk to someone about it if I have questions and have not already sold myself or had a sample. And what’s with those so tiny of samples I get from some who don’t give me more than enough for one try? I need a couple nights at least on an eye cream.

      Aww, I’m sorry. I felt like replying because I can totally relate to that feeling. It ruins my whole day when I’m treated like that.

    What blush color do you wear with brown eyeshadow? Coral / Soft pink
    What blush color do you wear with purple eyeshadow? Pink

  6. What blush color do you wear with green eyeshadow? Colours like ELF Tickled Pink, sort of peachy pink neutral go to colours.
    What blush color do you wear with brown eyeshadow? Anything really, but I love the look of an orangey-coral colour.
    What blush color do you wear with purple eyeshadow? Again, the peachy pink neutral go to colours.

    In case you can’t tell, I’m one of those people that wears the same blush colour with everything.

  9. SHERRY

    Green shadow- a coral or peachy pink blush. Brown shadow- a mocha or brown toned blush- something like the new Pressed Amber or Darkly my Dear from Mac. Purple shadow- a plum or purple toned blush- I love wearing Vintage Grape from Mac or Plum Nuance from Estee Lauder with purple.

    I co-ordinate my lip and cheek colours more than worrying about what is on my eyes. So generally, I’m wearing a pink rose or berry toned blush and similar lipstick or if I’m wearing red on my lips, I’ll go with a slightly more red-toned blush. But eye shadow colour doesn’t really affect my blush choices.

  13. Noir

    Most of the time I wear bronze as blush or brownish blushes with pink undertones such as Darkly My Dear from the Venomous Villains collection from MAC (which is my favorite blush of all time!). I never really cared if my blush matches my eyeshadow, because somehow it looks just fine on me.

  14. Sabrina

  16. Mary Jayn

    I don’t wear blush. I’ve never worn it and have none in my makeup stash either. I have no clue why though as I have just about every color of eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc.

  17. My blush is always coordinated with my lip colour and that means many different colours.

  18. Lisa G

    With greens, I wear coral or nude/natural blush.
    With browns, I wear pink blush.
    With purples, I wear peach blush.

  19. Yazmin

    Green eyeshadow = a light flush of orange blush. Taj mahal sheered out seems to work for me

    Brown eyeshadow = it usually means a neutral look so i would pair it with a bright or vibrant blush, something like the mufe mufe aqua creams

    Purple eyeshadow = pink or mac’s flirt and tease, i love how it looks fab on my complexion

  20. Jill

    I pretty much wear Benefit’s Sugarbomb with everything, it is the perfect barely-there, yet still noticeable, blush for me. Sometimes if I am wearing brown eyeshadow I’ll wear Benefit’s Dallas, it gives me a darker, almost windburned look (as weird as it sounds it looks nice), that goes nicely with more natural colors.

  21. Sarah M

    green eye shadow = warm peach or pink blush, or bronzer – usually to match my lip colour
    brown eye shadow = no blush. maybe just contour and highlight or a little bronzer.
    purple eye shadow = peach/coral/orange or pink blush; again depending on my chosen lip colour.

  22. Saffy

    green – coral or pink-brown
    brown – coral, pink or plum. Anything goes with a neutral shadow, really.
    purple – pink-brown or pink, depending on the shade of purple

    I don’t really wear blush much at all. I’m so very pale that I feel like they look silly. I usually end up using things that are meant to highlight as blush.

  32. What blush color do you wear with green eyeshadow? soft pink, light bronze, nude anything, it really depends on how intense the eye look is, if it’s soft green i will go with soft pink and if it’s smokey with dark browns in the crease for example i wear a light bronze blush and if it’s smokey green with black or very intense green look i choose a nude blush most of the time a nude pink.

    green eyeshadow- peach blush
    brown eyeshadow- soft pink cream blush
    purple eyeshadow- deeper berry-pink blush

  36. Eileen

    People who are too formularic in their color combinations tend to become make-up victims or look boring. How well colors will combine will ultimately depend on whether the predominant eyeshadow color is warm or cool and what undertones are contained in it. For example, I might wear something like Espiègle (soft peach) with the warm golden greens in Lancôme’s five color palette, but I’d wear something like Rose Écrin (soft, neutral rose) with Chanel’s aqua tinged Murano quad. It’s more about color theory than a hard fast “rule”.

  37. Gillian

    Green eyeshadow – neutral blush like Nars Penny Lane
    Brown eyeshadow – peachy/coral like Benefits Coralista
    Purple eyeshadow – baby pink like Macs Well Dressed

  38. Ava

    For reference, I’m approx. an NW15.
    What blush color do you wear with green eyeshadow? –Usually peach (My Highland Honey)
    What blush color do you wear with brown eyeshadow? –That depends on the rest of my look, but since I’m on the warm side I would stick to peach or a brown (like Happy Together)
    What blush color do you wear with purple eyeshadow? — That can also be dependent on the rest of the look, but usually a reddish-pink like Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Natural Beauty

  39. Mrs. Stowers

    I wear orange-y brown blushes with green eyeshadows like warm toned bronzers, pink blushes with brown eyeshadows, and cool toned bronzers with purples or cool toned pinks if I’m feeling bubbly
