Are you a blush kind of girl?

I’ve never really used blush.  (Okay, I did have a couple horrific months of experimenting when I was 13, but I won’t count that). Maybe I don’t know how to apply it, or maybe I’m just so naturally gorgeous I don’t need it (I’ll let you guess the answer to that one!). 

If anything, I use a bronzer…just not blush.  I guess it would really depend on your skin tone.  My skin tone is an olive color, and Cate Blanchett (above) has much fairer skin.  Here she is today at the L’Oreal Paris 2007 AFI Awards Dinner in Melbourne, Australia. She looks beautiful!  Also glowing from her pregnancy, I’m sure. :)

Clinique’s Perfectly Real Compact Makeup!

My skin is very sensitive. I don’t like wearing foundation – or powder – or anything. In the morning I just wash, and apply lotion. But every now and then I really need a good compact powder. When I saw this – I thought HEY, this might work! (If you’ve tried it, let me know!)
