Best Blush Colors and Techniques for Light Brown Hair and Brown Eyes

Natalie Portman, above, is wearing subtle yet colorful blush on her face. To get her look, try the following:

  • Wear pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, and peach blush under your eyes and on your forehead. This gives you a rosey glow where people expect to see blush, and applying the second color on the other parts of your face imparts a healthy hue that doesn't detract from your cheeks.
  • Your best blush colors are light pinks, light peaches, and very light browns.
