For deeper skin tones, Charlotte recommends pigmented blush colours such as punchy reds, berries and hot pinks, and rich, rosy browns. Some lighter shades might not be as apparent on a deeper complexion, so choosing an impactful shade of blush is the best way to give deep skin a beautiful, blushing look.
Charlotte’s Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow is a flexible, cream lip and cheek tint for a dewy-looking flush. Colour of Passion, a radiant berry-pink, is a perfect blush shade for deep skin, calling on the beautifying powers of Pillow Talk to give the lips and cheeks the dreamiest berry hue. The rich, warm tones give deeper complexions a romantic glow, with the pigment sheering out to form a soft, flattering kiss of colour.
To give deep skin the dreamiest pop of colour, Charlotte created her Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wand in Dream Pop! This cheeky cherry shade gives the cheeks a Pillow Talk-inspired flush, exploring a romantic, red rendition of Charlotte’s signature shade! This natural-matte liquid formula is designed to be dotted onto the cheeks, building up a breath-taking blush look that gorgeously enhances the richness that comes with a deeper complexion.

Charlotte’s Cheek to Chic powder blush in Walk of No Shame is inspired by her iconic lipstick shade, giving the cheeks a magical, berry-red flush that looks gorgeous on deep skin. The two-toned blush compact includes a show-stopping red shade and a glistening champagne gold that work together to create a satin blush look with beautiful, berry tones that pop on deep skin tones. Cheek to Chic in Pillow Talk Intense is another gorgeous option for deep skin, building up a dreamy diffusion of rosewood pink blush that melds flawlessly with a deeper complexion to create a rosy, romantic blush look.
Tan skin naturally has a lot of warmth, so blush colours with nude and peach tones meld beautifully with a tanned complexion. Building up a blush look that looks summery and sun-kissed adds dreamy dimension to a tanned skin tone, flushing olive and tanned complexions with the perfect pop of colour.
Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow in Colour of Passion is a multi-purpose cream blush and lip tint that looks gorgeous on tan skin. The flexible cream colour is a passionate pink with warm, summery tones that give the cheeks a love-blushed look. The Pillow Talk-inspired shade has a glowing, dewy-looking finish and gives a chiffon-sheer kiss of colour that dreamily complements a tan complexion.
Charlotte’s Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wand in Peach Pop is a peachy-nude blush that blends beautifully into a tan complexion. The warm, sun-kissed tones are complementary to olive skin, soaking the cheeks in vibrant colour with a dreamy, natural-matte finish. One dot of Charlotte’s silky liquid blush onto the apples of the cheeks gives skin a soft blush look and adding a second or third dot dials up the look for bolder, brighter, blushing cheeks!

The best powder blush for tan skin in Charlotte’s iconic line-up of Cheek to Chic blushes is her reddish-brown shade, The Climax. The swish-and-pop formula includes a medium brown and red-pink that are perfect for swirling together to create a warm blush look that perfectly complements the natural warmth of a tanned complexion.
Medium skin tones are flexible with in-between tones, so the best blush colour for medium skin can lean a little softer or brighter depending on your preference. Explore juicy peach tones to create a warm glow or nude-leaning pinks for a more reserved blush look and discover the perfect blush shade for your medium skin.
A cream blush that looks fabulous on medium skin tones is Charlotte’s Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow in the irresistible Colour of Dreams! This radiant, rosy blush shade is formulated to give medium skin the dreamiest flush of fresh, floral pink to give the complexion an ethereal blush look.

Ecstasy, a pretty peach, and Sex on Fire, a mood-setting pink, are Charlotte’s best Cheek to Chic powder blush shades for medium skin. If you prefer a warm-toned blush look, use Ecstasy to flush the cheeks with the perfect shade of peach, giving medium skin a glowing, sun-kissed look. Or, if you prefer a cool-toned blush on your medium skin tone, use Sex on Fire to give the cheeks a sultry wash of colour in a flattering tawny-rose hue.
Blush can be easily over-applied on a lighter skin tone, so it’s important to choose the best blush shades for fair skin to avoid an overpowering flush. While deeper blush colours can work on fair skin when applied with a light hand, Charlotte recommends choosing sweet pinks that give the cheeks a dreamy wash of colour that beautifully complements a paler complexion.
On fair skin, a semi-sheer blush formula like Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow is the easiest way to build up a flattering flush without overwhelming the complexion. Charlotte’s Colour of Dreams shade mimics the radiant rose tones of beautiful bouquets to give the cheeks a romantic wash of colour; it looks gorgeous on fair skin and is perfect for creating the appearance of love-bitten lips and naturally flushed cheeks. The flexible, emollient-rich formula is easy to blend and effortlessly sheers out, giving fair skin the dreamiest, dewy-looking, Pillow Talk tint.
A dot of liquid blush can effortlessly lift the look of the complexion, and the best liquid blush shade for fair skin is Charlotte’s Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wand in Pink Pop! This pretty, pale-pink blush is easy to dot onto the apples of the cheeks, giving fair-skinned beauties romantically flushed cheeks that appear softly pinched and perfectly pink! This easy liquid blush can beautify a light skin tone with the lightest touch, but for blush lovers, it’s effortlessly built up to create a captivating bright pink blush look!
Tilbury Tip: Add gorgeous glow to your blush look using Charlotte’s Beauty Light Wands in Pillow Talk, Pinkgasm or Peachgasm.
