“I love the colour these blushers give and the subtle sheen they leave on cheeks.” — Mehek

Best highlighter

“I love how well this layers up. The more you apply, the brighter it is, and if you prefer a natural look, simply apply one layer.” — Najla

Best bronzer

Our judges voted to splash out on cheeks, but for a beautiful blusher for less, they all love the shades from Bobbi Brown! Dh162

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.
