Most of us stick to darker, more subdued blushers in winter, but this season we’re seeing a lot of shimmery, luminous compacts to complement equally luminous skin. From pretty pinks to luxurious golds, there’s a shimmer to match every skin tone. Fair and lighter skins look their best with a peach or pink-toned blusher, while darker skins get an amazing glow from bronzes and golds. Plus, what’s great about these shades is you’re not restricted to your cheeks – you can use them as an all-over blusher or highlighter too.
