Blush tips for brown-eyed gals

Of all women, those with brown eyes can choose from the largest range of blush colors. From pinks to reds, a wide range of blush colors will flatter those sultry eyes.

Blush tips for brown-eyed gals

Balance your blush.

Make those big browns stand out with fun, bright colors. Betsy Martin, editor of fashion and beauty e-zine Reign Denver, says, "Blush can make a huge difference in your overall look. Too much, and you'll look like you've overdone it; too little and you will look washed out. In fact, I keep blush in my purse at all times and dab it on the apples of my cheeks throughout the day. It gives you an instant oomph of color that no lip gloss or powder can compete with."

Try pinks.

MAC makeup has a large range of pinks; try Pink Swoon (Clearly Pink in sheertone), Dollymix (Pure Candy Pink in sheertone shimmer) and Well Dressed (Immaculate Pink in satin). Some brown-eyed ladies might want to go for pink or rosy shades because of their fair skin tones; those with darker skin tones might want to try more bricks and reds. For really dark brown eyes, try Bobby Brown Cranberry (a brownish deep red) or Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Rock n' Rose.
