You may want to look at "expose". I am blonde but similar skin tone as you.

I would try the "Plush" shade for your skin tone. I also use this blush & the brush that I use to apply it is the Sephora brand Kabuki Brush.

Try "Exposed." It's a nice peachy color that works well on my light colored skin (though my hair and eyes are darker, so it may be different for you). For a brush I use the Tokidoki blush brush.

VELVET ROPE! It is a very neutral shade and remember to apply lightly and blend well. It will look beautiful with your hair and eyes! I suggest a medium size blush brush..this is one of those shades you want to concentrate on the apples of your cheeks for a "sunny pop" of color.

I would recommend the color Exposed. It has an orange undertone to the pink and it can be layered to achieve the right brightness.

My favorite brush to use is an angled blush brush that has a wide surface. It can hold a lot of powder and distribute it evenly across the cheekbone.

You need to try a peachy pink color blush since you have warm undertones, you need a cool color.

First off let me start by complimenting your features-WOW, you sound gorgeous! I love the golden undertone fair skin with the red hair and blue eyes and I can see why you wanna stay away from pinks and definitely plums. I would suggest you go for (believe it or not) Hollywood and/or Plush. Hollywood might look very red but don't be intimidated by it, use it with a very light stroke and TAP THE BRUSH BEFORE applying to you cheek you might even want to stroke the brush against the back of your hand/tissue lightly before taking it to your cheek so that this ensures you get the lightest application and this color is beautiful when it is done right and not abused! PLUSH is great as well because it's more low key and I am completely in love with it! I think this is a go-to color for most light complexions.
As far as brushes go, I got the 8-piece collection from Sephora it comes in a iridescent pink clutch with a magnetic flap and it comes with a large fluff brush for all-over face (face powders), a fan brush (light application of powders/highlighters), eyeshadow, eyebrow,lip brushes and my favorite-the blush brush! I love the handle and the bristles. The handles are pink and cylindrical and thick so you get good grip on the handle. The bristles are short enough so that they pick up more product but soft enough so that they are not stubby or scratchy against your face. I got this set on Mother's Day like two years ago at the Sephora in Hollywood, but I just saw it at another Sephora the other day so I'm sure they still have it, it's about $60. I hope this helps you out!

Hi,

Here the application answer first: It has a really nice texture and it applies evenly. I've tried applying this with my fingers, with various brushes, and with a puff (like my grandmother used to do). It looks great no matter which way it's applied. When applied, it blends in so well that it looks like a natural flush when lightly applied, and more glamorous when layered.

As far as the shade, I suggest you go to a Sephora, if there's one nearby and try the shades. The consultants are always helpful and may make suggestions none of here would think of. Also, I'm pale and enjoy certain shades while my sister, who has the same exaxt coloring, looks awful in those shades. The consultants can hold shades up next to your skin and do a make over if you want and give really good advice much bette than any of us can. I'd like to offer a shade, and would probably suggest Exposed, but it might not be right for you.

Hope this helps.

Velvet rope looks good on just about everyone. Definitely has some great gold undertones that would be good with red hair. I apply it with a slant/angled blush brush in a circular motion so that it is really evenly blended. This is how they taught me when I went in for my wedding consult.

i would recommend exposed over velvet rope because it's more versatile since it's a peachy pink while vr is just pink. which ever one you choose you won't be disappointed because the quality of these blushes are so nice. i'm nc37 with warm yellow undertones and i can wear both colors... just use a light hand with a stipple brush for light application. i hope this helps!

truthfully, i'm really not sure what would look good on you. all 3 shades are all beautiful colors. i would test each one first and see what would really go with your skintone. why dont you test exposed.....you might like it. i use the peach shade...exposed is the name. i tested on my cheeks and i just fell in love with the outcome. i normally don't use peachy shades but this one is a mixture of peach and pink...so its just right. i just use a kabuki brush. whatever you think u can work with. hope i helped even a little bit.

They are very similar.. I was choosing between the same exact two today. Velvet Rope is more peachy while exposed is more pink. So you should try it on and see what suits your face more. I went with the velvet rope because the peach gave it a more natural look while the pink looked cakey on me.

Velvet Rope is much more of a pink than the swatch shows. That being said, I think it's a perfect pink--neither too dark nor too light--that woukd flatter almost every face. So that's my pick! The Exposed is very peachy, so not for cooler/pinker skintones.

Velvet Rope is by far the most flattering/neutral/versatile shade in the Lorac line. Give it a try.

Just reviewed this one - I am very fair, though brunette. My skin and hair both have rose/red undertones and I use the velvet rope. A little goes a long way (otherwise it's too "plummy") but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

I would get Exposed.

I personally purchased both of your colors in question, and on my medium skin tone, I have found Exposed blends easier and adds more of a glow.

Velvet Rope seems to be deeper in pigmentation and stand out more if not lightly applied.

Either way, both are gorgeous and you're sure to love which ever LORAC Matte Satin Blush you choose!!

I love the color Exposed. I have a gold-toned fair skin and it looks awesome on me. My best friend is blonde with pink-toned fair skin and it looks amazing on her as well. It's all about how you layer the color.

And it's so smooth you can even layer it over other blushes. :D

Velvet Rope! if you wanna accentuate the red undertones then I would go with Exposed since it is a bit more peachy.

answer 10
Hi,

I'd say Exposed. Velvet Rope was too dark and obvious for my fair/pale skin. You might also want to consider Flaunt, the new pink shade. The Sephora consultant was telling me how well this shade does for people with red hair, for blondes, and women like me with brown hair that looks reddish in the summer. It's a great new shade.

Hope this helps.

I have the velvet rope and my blonde fair friend has tried it and loved it. It comes out light at first and you later it on to intensify the color, so it's not like the color will be drastic on your face at all. I tested them all in the store and liked this one best.

I think Plush would suit you best. It's a strong apricot/nearly orange-y on my pale skin but I think the olive tones in your skin would neutralize the orange and make it look more like a natural flush. Try it out, see what you think!

I would opt for a plummy shade of blush but Lorac doesn't make one. If you are wanting to try the Lorac ones (which are great! I mean why wouldn't u want to try these?) then I would opt for the Hollywood shade and if you're feeling a lil outrageous do a little dab of the peach-colored one- I think it's called Plush?

Because it's awesome? My local store was out for a couple weeks so they had me order by phone in the store to waive the shipping fee. I had the compact (and 3 great samples) at my door a few short days later.
