I live by verrrrry minimal makeup-rules. Rules often get you stuck in a spot that makes it hard to try new things and products which is right where I DON'T want to be. But. This is one that I FULLY subscribe to: YOU NEED BLUSH. No really. You NEED blush. Even if you aren't going for a pink-cheek, blush will lift your cheekbones making you look THINNER, add structure to your face even if you have little to no makeup on, and make you look ALIVE.

THE WHY: For years, I've worked for multiple cosmetic lines which exposed me to a TON of Dept. store brands early-on. While I will always love some of those products that hooked me years ago, I've still got bills that have gotta be paid and don't always want to spend SO much on fancy cosmetics.
