Do you have them all?

Think your blush collection is complete? Think again. A well-rounded arsenal requires more than one hue, because different looks call for a different kind of flush. Keep reading for a complete guide to all the colors you'll ever need in your makeup kit.

1. Pink

First up is the ever-flattering pink. This color gives us a flirty flush, and it's perfect for your no-makeup looks! Choose among soft pinks, rose tones, and peachy pinks for a natural hint of color.

2. Coral

If pink cheeks aren't your thing, then we reckon you're a fan of coral hues? These typically come in different shades of orange and peach, which can be as subtle as pink when applied lightly. Also, they complement warm-toned Filipina skin beautifully.

3. Bold

Blush doesn't always have to be subtle and natural. A shocking pop of color on the cheeks can make as big of a statement as any accessory! Keep them handy for an instant pick-me-upper or an eyeshadow alternative. We recommend bright reds, neon pinks, and even lilacs or purples for a well-rounded collection.

4. Deep

Unlike the three mentioned above, deep-toned blushes are less eye-catching. They're more understated and somehow more alluring—fit for nighttime looks. Instead of sporting bright, cheerful cheeks, you get a soft wash of color with these. Plums, rosy browns, and mauves fit into this category perfectly.
