When it comes to makeup must-haves, blusher is your best friend. The merest hint of a tint will suffice to breathe life and light into your skin – better at fending off pallor and pastiness than snatching forty winks, in my opinion. Keep in mind, however, that we’re not talking “kontouring” of the kind favoured by the Kardashians and Jenners – instead, all you need is the subtlest of shading on the cheekbones or apples of your cheeks.
A nude is also never just a nude – subtle gradations in shade and saturation complement complexions just half a hue apart. Bewitched, bothered and bewildered? Check out the gallery slides above – complete with shopping suggestions for your perusal and purchasing consideration – for a beauty beginner’s guide to all things blusher.
