Lord knows I love a good blush. Some people say concealer is their essential to make a dead face look, well, less dead. I say, nay, friends. It's blush that really makes you look like you still have a beating heart and blood pumping through your veins. Specifically, the Becca Champagne Splits have been heaven sent, as they really take the guess work out of my morning routine. You get your highlight and your blush/contour in one palette, and it totally removes all thought from getting ready. Because, to be honest, things can seem foggy at 6 AM. For more on why it's awesome, we heard from Becca Style Director and Makeup Artist, Kerry Cole.
