Rosy Cheeks...

Everybody loves a good blush. The right pink will make you look younger. The perfect rose will give you a sexy edge. A good peach creates an innocent look. But which blushes work? Let's take a look at a few different types of blush.

Powder Blush

Benefit's Dallas Blush is one of the best powder blushes I've ever used. The color is a dusty rose, but has a little bit of bronzer in it. I love the rectangular little brush it comes with. Use it at an angle and sweep from the apple of your cheek towards the ear for a romantic glow.

Cream Blush

Nars The Multiple in Orgasm is a gorgeous peachy pink shimmer that does three jobs in one; sculpts, highlights, and shades. Apply with fingers for a pretty glow, or apply directly with makeup stick and blend for a deeper color.

Cheek Stain

Not only is Benefit's Posietint a beautiful pink shade, but it works double-time, acting as both a lip and cheek color. The key to using a liquid formula is to moisturize beforehand, and apply quickly with fingertips, blending carefully. Start at the apples of your cheek and sweep towards ear. To use as a lip color, dot on lips and blend with fingers.
