Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Christian Siriano and Michael Kors

Tips On Wearing The Look
* The key is to apply the blush to your cheekbones and blend towards the temples rather than just the apples of your cheeks.

* Those with light skin can never go wrong with pinks and peaches. Medium and darker skin look best in brighter pinks and corals.

* When going heavy on the blush, avoid using bright colors on your eyes and lips understated to prevent an overkill.

* To get the longest-wearing color, start with a cream blush then top with a powder blush.

Products Recommendations:

Temptu Retouch Blush, Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and NARS Blush

    I thought Leighton Meester’s makeup in general looked really good. I know Christian Siriano did the rosy cheek look isn’t meant for everyday, but I’m still not a fan of it. It almost looks messy to me.

    Ooh, good thing I picked up MAC’s Ladyblush this weekend. They’re discontinuing their whole line of creme blushers, I can’t believe it!

    Blush has always been my thing- it makes you look so youthful and vibrant! Glad I found your website, it’s wonderful and so informative!! And my vote is the way the celebs did the bright blush, not the runway;-)
