(See Above)“I love putting the strongest hit of color right in the center of the cheek,” says Warren. Try her unusual tactic, which sounds a bit backward, but makes your face come alive with color, even if you’re not wearing any other makeup. First, apply your usual foundation, concealer, or powder to prep the skin. Then, add a hint of bronzer across the cheekbones and bridge of your nose. Now, take a fluffy blush brush and use it to apply a cream-to-powder blush like Smashbox Cream Cheek Trio in In Lights over the bronzer (stay away from gel since it will look streaky). Use a dry makeup sponge to buff out any strong edges so that the pop of color blends seamlessly into your skin. The radiant result? A warm bronzed complexion with a bright, happy cheek.
