Why You Should Be Wearing Blush

There's no denying eye shadow and lipstick are both wonderful things. But lately we can’t get enough of that perfect, natural-looking flush. While there are things that give our cheeks a natural flush — like our latest crush, eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and a heart-pumping workout — we usually enlist the help of a great blush to make our cheeks pop and make us look and feel healthy and alive.


Get Noticed

According to a 2012 study by Psychology Today, people shown photos of faces that had been enhanced with red undertones, perceived the photographed subjects as more attractive, youthful, healthier and vibrant. As if you need another excuse (besides pretty pink powder) to get cheeky!

So the next time you want to go for a fun, glowing look, start with your blush first, blending a bright pink powder or cream-based blush all over cheeks to re-create a healthy flush. Try Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze in Pink Fever or Lancôme Paris Blush Subtil in Shimmer Pink Pool.
