While we place a lot of attention and detail to our eye makeup and lips, one thing that we tend to neglect while doing our faces are our cheeks. Adding a dash of colour to our cheeks brightens up our whole face structure and adds a healthy glow. This also makes faces look very contoured and chiselled by highlighting our cheek bones, if applied properly. Not applying blush may makes you look tired and fatigued and that is something we do not want, right? Blush should be applied in such colour saturation that it blends well with your own skin colour. Too much of it can make you look clown like and too little makes your face appear dull. Here is a general guideline to choose blush as per your skin tone. Very fair skin tones should go for fresh pinks and hot pinks. Darker ones should stick to Deep plums and Earthy shades like Terracotta and cinnamon. Corals go well with every skin tone. Also, rub an ice cube on your face before starting your makeup to make your pores shrink so that coloured particles do not sink in deep.

So, read on to know some really good blushers best suited for various skin tones that are available in India.

Top 6 blushes available in India:
