Blush instantly brightens skin, makes cheekbones stand out, and helps fake hours of rest — yet it still sometimes gets treated like the fifty-pound elephant in the room. Time to get over your rouge-o-phobia!

One of our favorite blushes of all time is Nars Powder Blush in Exhibit A, a strong orange-red shade. Don’t be intimidated by the vibrant color — it looks Crayola-bright in the compact, but it adds just a sheer pop of color to all brown skin tones. No wonder celebs like Alicia Keys, Nia Long, and Kelly Rowland swear by it!

The best part? It’s incredibly pigmented, so it lasts all day. Dust it on andhello, foxy lady!
