I am ashamed to say that I thought because my shade of brown didn’t ‘blush’ in a traditional sense that I couldn’t apply the makeup product to my cheeks. That ignorant thinking almost made me miss out on some pretty amazing products that give my face an enviable glow.

Now that I see the light, I want to shout it from the rooftops: Brown women can wear blush too! The summer is the bright time to add a bright swipe of color to your cheeks.

Here are some super bright ones that will rock this summer:

1. MAC Dollymix



This color is a nice pink that make your skin look you are flushed from a good workout, plus the color is super blendable. Plus it’s not as shockingly bright, so it a good way to ease into bright blushes.

    NARS Orgasm is the ultimate blush for darker skin! So is BeneFit Moonbeam, but Moonbeam needs to be applied with a light hand. I love my Orgasm Illuminator, I mix it with my tinted moisturizer.

    Awesome article…I’m hesitant to try out blushes (though I love make-up!), so this may be the kickstart I need!

    I use NARS Exhibit A and I absolutely love it! It’s the perfect shade for me.
