A good blush can solve all problems. No matter how tired, pissed or crappy I'm feeling, a dash of pink on the cheeks and nose makes me feel fresh and full of life, like a young maiden wearing a crown of flowers.
Edward Bess's blush compact in color #03, aptly named "Bed of Roses," has all of those magical powers with the added benefit of portability. The sleek little box contains its own mirror and brush, which is just the right size for sprucing up the apple of the cheeks. It is also important to note that the pigment of the blush itself is dense enough to avoid accidental overloading. Nothing is more conspicuous than crazy amounts of blush, but this bed of roses is all about blending in and perking up.
Edward Bess Blush Extraordinaire Compact in "Bed of Roses", $43, available at Neiman Marcus.
