Q. Which blushers work best with the
different shades of mineral powders?
In general, the following combinations
Rose: Can be combined with Porcelain, Honey Light and Honey Medium
Peach: Can be combined with Caramel Light and Caramel Medium
However, other combinations can also work, as explained by one leading
make-up artist, “The peach blush works really well with porcelain skin too! I
find with blusher it’s not always a particular colour for a particular skin
tone… it's more a case of personal preference, like to using the rose more in
winter and peach in spring/summer. But if I was doing a make-up on a very pale
skin, I'd probably use peach as it’s warmer and really pale skin tones tend to
be quite cool”. Amy-Louise Saunders, Make-Up Artist

wrinkles and fine lines - for a softer, more youthful and radiant
