Glow . . . Fun with Blush

Only time for a quick one tonight, but I thought I'd share one of my favorite blush tricks. Most people (including me until a few years ago) only put blush on the apples of their cheeks and call it a day. There nothing wrong with this, it's how you should wear blush . . . but one thing my wedding makeup consultant taught me was to add a little dash of blush on the brow bone, right below the brow: 

Make sure to use just a little bit - seriously, just a dash - but it makes your whole face look lighter and more healthy. I do it every morning and it makes me look that mush more awake and bright-eyed. I found it works especially well with a really light, bright pink shade - like NARS' Orgasm ($25):

Disclaimer: Because I live in San Fran, I see very little sunshine on a regular basis, so this maybe one of those remedial tricks that works only for us sunshine-depraved folk to make us look like we don't live in a fog-enclosed tundra of a city. I think there's a good chance though that this might work for everyone, so give it shot and let me know.

  1. I love Nars blush. My favorite color was Mouira which was discontinued....
