You know how the models in J.Crew and Madewell catalogues always look fresh-faced, bright, and beautiful, with perfectly rosy cheeks? It definitely helps that they're naturally gifted with angelic skin, but there's almost always makeup to thank for a gorgeous "no makeup" look—and a talented makeup artist. I recently came across this article on the clothing brands' blog about their go-to makeup artist, Kaoru Okubo. In it, she recommends a good moisturizer and a smudge of blush from the cult favorite Japanese brand, CanMake. As soon as I received it, I could see why it's an under-the-radar favorite. The packaging is so cute—it looks like one of those rings that opens up to have lip gloss in the "jewel." It's also easy to apply—I just use my fingers, it glides on to the apple of my cheek seamlessly, and then dries into a soft, barely-there glow that's the ideal complement to a low-key look. I can't wait to pick up a few more colors on my upcoming trip.
