Flushed Cheeks THE LOOK: A pop of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to mimic the brightness you get from exercising THE TRICK: You’ll need a cream or gel blush since “heavy powders sit on top of your skin, erasing the dewy effect you’re after,” says Lee. Pick a shade that matches the color your skin turns when you pinch your cheeks.
Dot it on each cheek, focusing it on the tops of the apples (under your eyes) since that’s the area that turns the most rosy when your heart rate spikes.
Spread the dot out in a big circle with your fingers. “The warmth of your hand makes the blush melt into your skin, which helps it look like the color comes from within,” Lee says. Worthy extra step: Tap a bit of blush over the bridge of your nose too, Lee says, “because that’s another area where you flush when you work out.”
