Soft Flush

One perk to the cooler weather? The gorgeous natural glow the wind gives your complexion. The hue often fades shortly after you duck inside, but Keira Knightley’s rosy blush at the New York City premiere of Anna Karenina is the closest we’ve seen to the real thing. “We wanted the look to be classic and beautiful,” said her makeup artist Kate Lee. While Knightley’s red lip and lush lashes were the focal points of the look, we loved how the subtle pink glow tied the look together. When going for a similar effect, remember—not all blushes are created equally. If not blended correctly, powder blushes can sit on top of the skin, so to avoid this, Lee repurposed a dusty rose lipstick by Chanel as a cream blush. The matte finish of the lip color blends seamlessly into Knightley’s complexion and doesn’t disrupt the foundation underneath.
