Help her sunny disposition shine through overcast skin with the glowing combo of a sophisticated flush and a flawless visage. “Rosy cheeks are always a quick pick-me-up,” asserts Leslie G. Christin, president and founder of CARA Cosmetics. Prior to using powder blush, Rudy Miles, Aveda global makeup director, advises “lightly dust the cheek area with a little loose translucent powder,” which helps keep the application blotch-free. Crème blush should be applied immediately after foundation for a seamless glow. Also, fall’s cheeky trend requires blush-brush genius: Christin points out that a smaller brush works best and to “grip the handle halfway toward the end for a softer stroke and increased control.” —Karie L.
