(Source: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images North America) Miranda Kerr might be one of our favorite street style stars, but she's also one of our favorite beauty stars as well. This winter she cleared away our cold-weather blues with some seriously bold lips. Lately, we've been noticing Kerr has been adding a special something else to her beauty look. Namely, the Aussie beauty has been rocking some of the prettiest blush hues around. Just one peek at these blushing looks, and we're already in the mood for warmer temps. So with spring just around the corner (we hope!), we've decided to bring you the "Miranda Kerr Guide to Blush."

Rule #1: Pink Is Always Pretty

You can never go wrong when you apply a pink blush. Period. Especially for women with fairer skin, like Kerr, a soft, rosy pink blush gives extra life and plump to your cheeks. For pinker hues, it's usually a good idea to concentrate the bulk of the color on the apple of your cheeks, with lighter touches of color extending out to the temple. Just be sure to blend properly. You'd never spot Miranda Kerr with non-blended blush!

Rule #2: A Little Drama Never Hurt Anyone

For a deeper, more elegant evening look, Kerr opts for a very, very rouged cheek. A strong blush with a tint of red gives an elevated, more sophisticated look. To really take it to the next level, take another tip from Kerr and pair a bold cheek with an equally strong lip.

Rule #3: Blush + Highlighter = Perfection

A dewy touch dabbed over Kerr's subtle yet still so pretty blush seems to make her skin glow from the inside out. Talk about discovering a winning combination.

Rule #4: Never Fear A Little Color

Although some might think blush hues should stay in the pink or red territory, Kerr proved those naysayers completely wrong with this showstopper. This rich apricot hue brought out the orange tones in her coral lipstick and gave her a sun-kissed, beachy feel instantly. Plus, orange blush is completely on trend.

So go on and give Miranda Kerr's blush tricks a go this weekend. And in case you're still looking for the perfect shade for your skintone, take a peek at one of our all-time favorites, Make Up For Ever's HD Blush in #410.
