Beware against using a wrong shade of pink or a shade that works against your skin tone as a blush-on for your cheeks.
To avoid a beauty faux pas, Delhi-based makeup expert Shruti Sharma has given out some tips on how to choose the sought-after blush colour:
Fair complexion: Give a healthy flush look by applying a shade of pink which is closest to your skin tone. Just a sweep on the apples of the cheeks is enough to add colour.
Wheatish complexion: A hint of coral tones in the pink blush will lift the look. Apply a sweep of light pink blush on the cheeks and then add a bit of bright coral pink only on the apples of the cheek.
Dusky complexion: A pink blush blended with a coral shade bordering on orange will do the trick. Apply a light pink on the cheeks and add an orange toned blush on the apples of the face. Alternatively, you can also go with a blush that is magenta in colour for the apples.
