Get cheeky

For a beautiful blush you need the right colour for your skin tone. According to make-up artist Bobbi Brown, fair skins should stick to pinks (the lighter the better); medium skins to browns and roses; tanned skins to deep rose; olive skins to plums, golden browns or deep roses; and dark skins to dark bronzes and deep reds.
