Perfectly Flushed Rosy Winter Cheeks

The only beauty gift that comes along with cold winter weather is rosy, flushed cheeks. Thankfully, you don’t actually have to step out into sub-zero temps. To get this winter flush, pat a rosy pink cream blush onto your cheeks—but don’t blend it all the way in. Apply the color from the apples of your cheeks and up along your cheekbone. (You can sub your favorite red lipstick for cream blush in a pinch, don’t be afraid to go brighter than usual.)

A winter flush looks even better with a tousled ‘do. Get the look by spraying some Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray from roots to ends and run your fingers through your hair. No cold weather or knit hats required!
