There are dozens of shades of blusher ranging from pale camel shades to deep terracotta.
For a contemporary look, start by applying your blusher to the apples of the cheeks and use your fingers to blend it towards the temples to give a subtle, sculpted effect. A good tip is to choose a shade that matches the cheeks when flushed, another popular method is to match the cheeks to the lip colour.
As a rule, fair skin looks great in rose and peach blusher shades and darker skin suits apricots or reds.
Pastel blushers, such as peach liven up the skin.
