Bridal Makeup: Best Blush for the Bride

How to choose the best blush for your wedding day? As a general rule your blush should compliment your skin tone and  the rest of the wedding make-up.  My favorite blushes for the bride are soft pinks, corals and  creamy peaches, you really can't go wrong these hues. To make the blush stay on all day long, apply first creme blush over the foundation,  set with powder and then apply the powder blush. 

Here is selection of some of my favorite blushes that I have used on recent photo shoots I recommend you try:

MAC Dainty  is as a rosy peach coloured blush with golden shimmer, really lovely. Its great for a light flush of colour and has just the right amount of shimmer in it. I just love the healthy glow it gives, it looks so soft and natural.

Check also my YouTube Video how to do Bridal Makeup: 


Bobbi Brown Powder Blush - Nude Peach is a soft peach with a hint of shimmer. The blush can be used just as light hint of color but it is  also buildable. I usually use it for a more natural look or pait it with a bold lip colour. 

Tenderling is a matte light beige peach that gives my cheeks healthy warm colour. This blush would suit to someone who adores the natural look and is generally bit shy around blushes. This blush is also great as a contour color for lighter skin complexion.

Nude Pink is a soft cool matte pale pink. Great color for a natural healthy look, it’s really fresh and brightening. This blush goes very well with almost every look. Suitable for all skin tones. 

Pink Swoon is a matte light warm pink blush that looks like a natural flush. I like to use it on the apples of the cheeks for a healthy  natural look. It goes on quite sheer, but can be built up for more intensity.

 MAC Sheertone Blush in Pinch O'Peach This is a perfect healthy-looking matte peachy-pink toned blush. Its just perfect for a sheer flush of pink or a bright pop of colour! It's very pigmented, so use with a light hand.

This is really my favorite blush of all times, if I could only keep one blush, then this is the one that would make the cut. Soft coral is a lovely matte peachy pink blush. It would suit all skin types.
