Cheek tint, or blusher, accentuates the cheekbones and gives women a natural glow. Typically light red or pink in colour, it comes in powder, liquid, and gel formations. The trick to flawless cheek tint for a teen lies in choosing the right colours and proper application. Generally speaking, the colour should match the teen's skin tone. Darker complexions require darker tints, while very pale colours, such as light pink, best complement olive skin.
