Cheek colour has been eclipsed by bronzing and contouring over the last few years, but a hint of fresh colour on the cheeks can give a really youthful flush. For spring and summer, a slick of sheer colour from a multi-tasking beauty tint is the easiest way to give your look an update without looking too done. To make a low-maintenance, gorgeous glow a little easier, check out my roundup of the best lip and cheek tints, now.

First, check out my spring skin regime update.

TOP TIP: Lip and cheek tints are great because they’re usually subtle and sheer so precise application isn’t necessary. Apply a smudge on the apples of your cheeks and to the centre of lips with your index finger and blend in, and carry with you in case you want to top up. Just carry a compact for touch-ups so you don’t overdo it!
