Cargo Cosmetics Blush in Mendocino ($26 at Kohl’s Beauty and Ulta.com)
Sweep this soft rose shade onto the apples of the cheeks and blend back along the cheekbone toward the ear. For a more contoured look, apply just beneath the cheekbone and blend back toward the ear.
Cargo Cosmetics Essential Eye Shadow Palette ($34 at Kohl’s Beauty and Ulta.com)
Apply neutral shades like “District” and “Rush Hour” to the eye lid. Highlight with “Uptown” and add dimension to the crease with “Metro.” Line the eye and gently blend the soft blue shade, “Industry” into the crease and outer corners for a subtle and wearable Pantone Serenity look.
Cargo Cosmetics Blush in Key Largo ($26 at Kohl’s Beauty and Ulta.com)
For a pop of color that warms up all complexions, sweep onto the apples of the cheeks and blend back along the cheekbone toward the ear. Apply lightly with soft stokes in a circular buffing motion as the blush is extremely pigmented.
