Blushes that complement gray hair

Don't fret over nature's changes. Embrace and enhance your gray hair with the right blush color.

Blushes that complement gray hair

Stay in the pink.

Instead of trying to play down your natural gray color, highlight it with a soft lily or pink rose blush that brightens your complexion, enhances your cheekbones and harmonizes with your silver locks. Stay away from dark, bright red colors and bronzers. Both these can make you look clownish.

L'oreal Paris offers many good options in its True Match Blush collection. For starters, try Tender Rose, Baby Blossom or Rosey Outlook. Jane, a grandmother who still enjoys looking youthful, remarks, "Bobby Brown's pot rouge for cheeks and lips is a staple in my makeup routine. Powder Pink (a light pink) or Pale Pink (a bright pink pastel) work best with my gray highlights."

Bobby Brown also has an award-winning basic blush line with a silky-smooth matte finish. Gray hair goes great with Desert Pink (a soft natural pink), Pale Pink (a bright pale pink) or Slopes (a flushed pink).
