It may be the dead of winter, and my tan line may be practically nonexistent now, but I walk around feeling rosy and bright thanks to my Fresh Here Comes the Sun Face Palette. I’m a fair-skinned blonde and that can spell trouble when it comes to blushers and especially bronzers — one swipe of the wrong color (or product) and I don’t even come close to achieving a natural glow. This product has three great shades, left to right: resolute gold, here comes the sun, intense bronze. I like to use here comes the sun on the apples of my cheeks and then use a VERY LIGHT (I can’t stress that enough) dusting of resolute gold across my forehead, the bridge of my nose, and on top of here comes the sun on my cheeks. The dusting of resolute gold to the areas where the sun typically kisses our faces the most really helps to add dimension — achieving the desired end result of the most natural of glows!

Benefit-Fine-One-One.jpgWe love beauty products with great packaging. And the second Benefit Fine One One came our way, we were completely smitten.

This twist-up tube contains three colors that work in tandem to brighten your cheeks. It’s a totally new way to think of blush! We love the orange, coral and light pink shades on their own as it is—but blended together the way they are here, they create a gorgeous flush that looks like you’ve been out in the cold.

You can even use it on your lips for a bit of color, but it’s really meant for cheeks. And isn’t the chrome tube just simply fabulous?

Benefit Fine One One launches later this month on With color this hot, we’re ready to dial NINE one one!
While some celebs took home the coveted Moon Man award at the MTV Video Music Awards last week, it was Rashida Jones’ glowing makeup job that was worthy of accolade. Jamie Greenberg, mark’s celebrity makeup artist, explains how she achieved the soft, warm glow on Rashida, “I buffed mark Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette on her cheeks, and kissed them with mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Cheeky. I set the makeup by dusting her face and decollate with mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Bronze.” 
NARS-Orgasm-Blush.jpgIt’s the perfect shade of peachy pink. It’s got a touch of shimmer to make you glow. It’s been a cult favorite for years. Oh, and it’s got a super controversial name. We could only be talking about NARS Orgasm Blush.

We know that the phrase “a color that works for everyone” is usually not true. But, in the case of this gorgeous blush, it really does! It adds such a pretty hint of color to everyone’s cheeks and just makes them look like they have an inner glow.

And, really, why wouldn’t you want to carry around a blush with a name that makes you … well … blush?

Benefit-Posietint.jpgWhen someone tells us there’s a blush/eyeshadow/lipgloss/etc that works for everyone, we tend to roll our eyes. Everyone? Every skin tone? Really? But then we discovered Benefit Posietint.

This blush actually, really, honestly DOES work for every skin tone. It’s the prettiest shade of pink that adds a hint of color to your cheeks and lips (and even your eyes, if you’re so brave). We love the consistency, too—rather than being a weird powder that clings unflatteringly to the skin, this is an easy-to-use-and-blend liquid.

And, in case you’re worried about going overboard, a little goes a long way. Three tiny flicks of the brush upon the cheekbones and a quick bit of blending and you’re good to go! Your cheeks are guaranteed to look like you’ve just come in from the cold and have a gorgeous, rosy glow. What could be better?
