Liven Up A Blah Complexion With This Genius Blush Trick

Will our skin ever be fully free from winter's lingering influence? It's almost summer and we — or at least our faces — are still feeling drab as all get out. We just want to look like we have four months of summer behind us while looking forward to the four months to come — that's reasonable, right?
Since no beauty woe is too large (or small) for our beauty BFF Bethany Brill to tackle, we asked her to show our assistant editor Tara the best way to apply blush for an all-day, totally natural-looking glow. We'll be using this trick on the daily (at least until we replenish our vitamin D sufficiently). Watch and learn how you can get this gorgeously natural flushed look, and let us know what you think: Does it compare to the real thing?
Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush, $30, available at Sephora; NARS Powder Blush in Desire, $29, available at Sephora; Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, $7.49, available at Ulta.
