7 Blushes That Make Life Better

Fact: We all look better with a little blush. Adding that flush of color to the cheeks just makes every complexion seem a little bit healthier and more fresh-faced. When you haven't gotten enough sleep or you're just not feeling 100 percent, blush is the secret weapon that ensures no one's the wiser. Stick one of these seven glow-getters in your makeup bag, and you'll be ready for anything.
