Gloomy weather got you down? Cheer up, sweet cheeks! Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you can’t rock the sun-kissed look. All you really need is a good glowy blush. With a quick dusting of rosy powder, you can fake a blooming face even on your most overcast days. Two of our finest flush-makers, below!

SPLURGE: Benefit Dandelion Box o’ Powder Mini, P900
The Dandelion Mini gives you compact convenience without sacrificing product performance. A ballerina-pink with hints of peach, it lends the cheeks a youthful freshness. Apply it as sheer or as bold as you like! The buildable powder appears totally natural and stays color-true for hours. Also, it smells like a day on the beach. Le sigh. Great things come in small packages, right?

SAVE: L’Oréal Paris Lucent Magique Mono Blush in Honey Beige, P500
For a similar wash of color, sweep on the Lucent Magique Mono in Honey Beige. It’s pink like Dandelion but has muted brick undertones in place of baby peach. Promise, the silky powder particles will melt into your skin. The result: a rose-tinted golden glow you could only get from the sun (before!). Something tells us you’ll be reaching for this blush all year long…
