I have a little problem with my cheeks and I was hoping some of your make-up gurus can help me out.
My left cheek is pinker than my right cheek. So pink that it looks chapped but it's not. The colours are the same in the summer and in the winter, but both sides of my cheeks are a little more sensitive in the winter.
Even when I apply make-up, good foundation plus blush, I can still see one side of my face is pinker than the other. So it looks like my blush application was uneven and I look a bit dumb. :P
Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

Have you tried using a corrector to tone down the pinkness prior to applying foundation and blush? Usually a green corrector will cancel out any red or pink tones in the skin. There are many brands that carry a corrector. I use Lise Watier's concealer/corrector wheel. The green is very concentrated so just dab a bit on first then apply your normal foundation over top.
Lorac has a primer that neutralizes redness too and it's a bit more forgiving. Make Up For Ever and Smashbox also have the similar products.
Also, yellow-based foundations and concealers will help neutralize the pink in your skin too. Try to stay away from blushes that have too much pink or red in them and go for more yellow warmer undertones.
Hope these suggestions help! :)
