How to Maintain a Rosy Glow

Sometimes you feel like cream cheek color, sometimes you don’t. For the days when you’re not sure which type of blush will work, Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour Pot is here to the rescue. The blush duo combines two colors in a pot with creamy cheek color for a flushed effect and loose powder for an understated glow.

As part of the fall Fresco Beauty collection inspired by colors found in Italian paintings, the cheek color is available in two colors. Soft Apricot is a peachy shade, while Sienna Sunset is a warm rose tone. If you want either of these shades to pop, just apply the loose cheek powder to set the cream cheek color.

Not only do you get two for one with this pocket-sized accessory, you also save space in your makeup bag to buy other goodies when you’re on the road.
