Beauty Week- Extra Cheeky

As a girl who's naturally a little red in the face (thanks to a touch of rosacea across my nose and cheeks), you'd think I would avoid blush like the plague. Not so. I love blush! For me, it's the second most important step toward looking instantly awake (right after applying Bobbi Brown's corrector and concealer to my eye area). I like to layer two types of blush over one another for maximum glow and staying power.





I'm wearing Bobbi Brown's Sheer Color Cheek Tint in Mauve high up on my cheekbones, and a light dusting of Powder Blush in Pink Peony on the apples of my cheeks (the fleshy part that pops out when I smile). I like blush to look as sheer as possible, so once the color is on I blend it with a clean, fluffy powder brush.
