Many of us BGs are powder blush and bronzer babes, but cheek stains are a great alternative! For the past two years I've been a huge fan of Tarte's gel-based cheek stain in Flush. It goes on sheer which gives just the right amount of color without looking too overdone. The barely-there tint is ideal for a more natural glow. Plus, it prevents the beauty faux-pas of applying too much with a brush (I apply mine with my fingertips). Don't be afraid of the color it appears to be in the bottle, play around and find the color that suits you best!
