Blush Shades To Keep You Glowing Through Labor Day

We're closing in on that dreaded time in our cosmetics calendar: the weird period between summer and fall where your warm-weather glow is fading, but you're not quite back to your "normal" skin tone. It's a pain for your face and your makeup bag, as well. The colors you wore starting in May don't look right, but your winter shades are a little too...chilly.
So, what's the solution? A color that works for those in-between months and beyond. Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite transitional blushes (yes, that's a thing). Play around between the shades to see which works best for you — deeper tones should reach for deeper colors and vice versa. But, no matter what hue you land on, there's one thing that's certain: These are colors you can rely on 365 days a year. Take that, makeup awkward phase.
