How To Be Beautiful: The buzz on blusher

Blusher is one of the most useful make-up bag items, yet it's also the one we're most likely to misuse. Put to its proper purpose – the addition of a little healthy colour and added dimension – it does its job admirably.

Katy Guest: How to succeed in retail: sell good stuff, politely. Er, that's it
