Get a cheap lipstick that is a shade deeper than your lips. Dot some on your cheekbones and blend with fingertips for a blush that appears natural. This can be put in your purse in place of a blush compact. It won't break apart if dropped and it takes up less room.

If you buy a lip color you don't care for, try it on your cheeks for a blush first before you discard it.
If the color is too dark you can break it off, dig the remainder into a small container and mix well with petroleum jelly and you have a good quantity of tinted "lip gloss". (02/27/2005)
If the color isn't one that I really like anymore. I give them to my 4 and 6 year olds when they play dress up. Or when they send a card to the grandparents they put on the dark color and send "kisses" to the grandparents by kissing the paper and making lip prints. (07/08/2005)
