Santa isn't the only one who should get to enjoy perfectly rosy cheeks this winter. If you've been looking for a sustainable blush to give you a flawless natural glow, Cameron Diaz found it—and she's not keeping any secrets.
The actress recently shared her getting-ready routine for a night out with friends. Aside from sipping a little pre-dinner
glass of red wine
(a holiday season must), her routine also involves a multi-use product that comes in the same hue as her beverage of choice: Merit's
Flush Balm in Raspberry Beret

What's great about the creamy tint is that it's multi-use. Aside from using it as a blush, Diaz also uses it as lipstick—something any makeup
can get down with. "I use the raspberry beret for my lips and cheeks,"
she says
. "It's my favorite—I've always been a plummy girl."
Clean, vegan, and cruelty-free, the Flush Balm is also formulated without acne-triggering ingredients, making it a top pick for
sensitive skin
. In addition, its packaging is made with 43% recycled plastic, and it ships in packaging that's either recyclable, reusable, or compostable.

Getting Diaz's plummy blush look is a cinch. First, apply your face makeup: Diaz uses Merit's
The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Stick
—a product that's applied only where you need it for a no-makeup look. Then it's time for the flush.
Apply the creamy raspberry-hued
Flush Balm
to the apple of your cheeks, then blend with your fingertips or a brush to soften the edges. If you want a more dramatic flush, apply a second layer and blend. Because of its consistency, it's hard to mess up—it melts right into the skin.
Finally, take a tip from Diaz and apply the balm to your lips. You'll wind up with a look that's basically begging for a night out with the people you love this
