All across the Fall 2015 runways, designers displayed what can best be called a youthful flush. The look is akin to running around outside in the cool fall weather or drinking a bit too much wine. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup simple to amplify the naturally sweet vibe of this trend.

  3. Take a larger face brush and blend to make it seem natural.
