Fall Beauty Essential #3: Rosy Blush

When the weather starts to get a little cooler, I find myself reaching for a rosy blush instead of bronzer. That fresh-faced flush not only gives the illusion of super healthy skin, but is so darn sexy. Look for shades that mimic your skin tone after you’ve been outside on a chilly day. I swear by Nars Blush in Sin ($26). This cult-favorite mauvey-plum blush with a whisper of golden shimmer is a perfect partner to those rich autumnal hues. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty ($25) is the essential strawberry-red that gives that lit-from-within glow and looks gorgeous on everyone; and Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use Stain Blush in Lure ($28), a natural berry stain that looks like second skin when applied with warm fingertips. No wonder it’s an Allure Best Beauty Award winner! What are your favorite blushes for fall?   –Hannah
