Pink cheeks are all the rage this season and I can’t begin to say how extremely flattering the hue is on all our range of skin tones. If you have cheeks, there’s a pink blush out there for you. The rule of thumb, the darker your skin, the brighter the blush. Our skin needs makeup that contains more pigment in it for it to show up beautifully. Now while many of these blushes can be worn on all shades of brown skin, here’s a quick guide to help you zero in on some options. Feel free to share your favorites in the comments.
