For dusky skin

People with dusky skin need to be careful when choosing a blush shade for them. Warmer skin tones need bold, intense red pigments as anything too light or milky will read as ashy on deep skin, and anything too dark can look bruise-like. Deep shades of red, orange, and brown are the ideal blush colors for those with dark skin. Try the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Cheek Contour - Coral Diva as it will look really natural and lovely on this skin tone.
