Favorite Find Friday: Nars Blush in Gaiety

Written on September 6, 2013 at 9:56 am , by

You know that lit-from-within glow often spotted on the cheeks of your favorite celebrity or magazine cover star (Fitness’ cover girl and rumored girlfriend to Derek Jeter, Hannah Davis, is working it on our September issue)? Well, I’ve found a dream product that delivers the perfect pink flush reminiscent of an after-workout glow minus the sweat-soaked clothes. Nars Blush in Gaiety ($29, narscosmetics.com) is an in-your-face hot pink that at first glance appears a bit intimidating. But don’t be thrown by the nearly-neon hue because once you sweep this onto the apples of your cheeks, you will be amazed at how natural and flattering this shade is. It goes on sheer and doesn’t overpower your whole look, so you have the freedom to play up bold eye makeup or a strong lip color. So even if you’re not a cover model, or Derek Jeter isn’t the one making you blush, you can still fake a flirty look with this pretty powder.
