Favorite Powder Blushes for Dark Skin

With as much as I swatch eyeshadows, it’s easy to forget that there are other makeup categories out there that I love. Eyeshadows are the easiest products to swatch (except for multichromes) and I can’t get enough of all the cool color combinations I can create, but eyeshadows are not my only makeup love. Today, I want to talk about one of my most under-swatched, but well-loved categories: blush. 

 Applying blush is actually one of my favorite parts of doing my makeup. But, because blushes often don’t show up well on camera and built-up finger swatches can be rather unhelpful, I don’t give them much attention when creating content. (The same goes for lipstick. I realized I haven’t posted swatches of lip products since 2019, but lip products are my second favorite makeup category. Some products are just not as fun and easy to swatch!)

But that changes today! This post is a roundup of my favorite powder blushes for dark skin, with the blushes (somewhat) organized by color. I also have a list of my favorite liquid and cream blushes coming up soon. It’s about time for blush to get its flowers from me!

There a ton of blushes in these photos and, although I tried to group similar colors together, I may have had some momentary lapses in color judgment. I also included finger swatches for all of the blushes and, because most people don’t build their blushes up to that intensity, I also included blended swatches. If any of the blushes are calling your name as much as they’ve been calling mine, I do have all the brands linked below. I also (finally) set up affiliate links, so if you shop through those links (which are marked with an asterisk), thank you for your support!

Alright, let’s get into these blushes! Enjoy!
