Sleek MakeUP is a skintone specialist, and this bronzing block is great for dark skin. Use a powder brush to blend the four colours then sweep it along your cheeks, forehead and anywhere else you want to glow. Plus, use the pink on its own and you’ve got yourself a lovely blush. £7.49, Sleek MakeUP
