Milani Baked Blush: $9.99
You may be scarred from clown-like blush from childhood dance recitals, making you hesitant to reach for blush today. If so, trust us: you're not alone. However, blush is in a similar vein as highlighter in that it's a great way to wake up the face in one simple step. Milani Baked Blush is ideal for a light dusting on the apples of the cheeks to illuminate the face and create a dewy glow.
