The fastest way to get a dewy, rosy complexion is to use a cream or liquid blush. They not only look more natural, but also give you a luminuous finish. Our go-to colour of the moment: rose pink. The shade is extremely pretty and works well on all skin tones. A tip to remember: try to apply with your fingers as the heat from your hand will aid in blending.
