When I think of winter beauty, the first thing that comes to mind is that beautiful, just-in-from-the-cold cheek color. It’s such a fresh and pretty look!

Women have been trying for years to find a way to fake that gorgeous, all-natural flush, unfortunately to no avail. It truly is the perfect rosy shade and it’s so difficult to find something that really replicates that — powders look too chalky and creams tend to slide and smudge off.

Fortunately, makeup artist extraordinaire Jake Bailey — he works with Katy Perry and Kyra Sedgwick — has a sneaky way to recreate that chilled cheek look without having to freeze your face off:

“I like to use a lipstain, like CoverGirl’s Outlast Lipstain, as a blush. It’s so pretty for winter and gives you that frostbitten look. Just tap your finger on the applicator, then tap your finger on the apples of your cheeks and blend. It’s translucent and it doesn’t travel or move so it’s longlasting. It gives you a great, natural flush that looks healthy.”

How fabulous and easy is that? Give it a try and tell me what you think!
