When we think of blush many of us conjure up images of bright pinks and reds which don’t exactly jive with our natural color palette. However, there are many blushes that work well with our complexion. Here are a few of our top picks:

This is the perfect berry red blush. It only cost about $5 at your local drugstores, but don’t let the price tag fool you. It packs a mean punch so you only need a little bit to go a long way.
