How can we not to incorporate this color into our makeup look? I know everyone has been wondering how to wear this saturated purple everyday without looking like a runway model.

Forget about your dreamy pink blusher and coral orange blusher, let me introduce the fashion's new favorite blusher, the lavender tone.
