Toward the end of winter, many cold-climate dwellers are afflicted by sallow or pasty complexions. (Shorter days and more hours spent indoors tend to do that.) If you're going for the Wednesday Addams look, then by all means, own it. But if you'd prefer a little more vitality, the trio of universally flattering, radiance-dispensing powders (namely, blush, bronzer, and highlighter) available in Urban Decay's Naked Flushed palette can make a world of difference. Use all three--a light all-over dusting of bronzer, blush on the apples of your cheeks, and highlighter along cheekbones--to create the illusion of having whiled away the weekend on a tropical island. Alternatively, pair the blush and highlighter for a luminous flush that suggests a romp through a meadow. Between the hint of color and the powders' light-diffusing particles, this compact will help wake up even the most ghostly skin.
