Seen? Or catch Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris in his skivvies? (My hand still covers my mouth thinking about it!) If your cheeks are flush, you're halfway to donning one of the hottest hues of the Oscars' red carpet: soft pink tones.

Are you blushing? I wouldn't be surprised if you were. Seen Fifty Shades of Gray? Or catch Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris in his skivvie? (My hand still covers my mouth thinking about it!)

If your cheeks are flush, you're halfway to donning one of the hottest hues of the Oscars' red carpet: soft pink tones. There was Oprah in her sweeping gown, Viola Davis in her how-to-get-away-with-an-off-the-shoulder number, mum-to-be Keira Knightley floating in floral embroidery and the Jennifers (Aniston and Lopez) with their super sparkle... all of them a la blush.

Aside from the hot lights of Hollywood, there are many ways to wear blush-colored clothing on our every day carpets. And not to worry: for those who complain that candy pinks wash them out, grab some bronzer and boost your cheek blush a little to warm your skin tone and you'll completely pull off your own, award-winning look.
