    Get a big fluffy blush brush. It's best for control and application. Dip it into the powder, swirl it around, and then blow off the excess powder. Then smile, and apply it to the apples of your cheeks, that is, the the part that sticks out when your smile. Just do this once or at the most twice. Any more, and you might look too pink.

    STEP 1: Select a color of blush that resembles the natural glow of your cheeks after you exercise. Consider having a lighter color for day, and a darker tone for a more dramatic evening look. Keep your blush in the same color family as your lipstick.

    STEP 2: Consider the type of blush best suited to your skin type. Cream blush works very well for drier skin, as it can help to keep skin hydrated. Powder blush is better suited to oily skin.

    STEP 3: Complete the application of foundation, powder and all eye makeup before applying blush.

    STEP 4: Use a full, round brush for the application of your powder blush, as it will make for a softer and more professional look than the brush that comes with the blush. This should not be the same brush you use to apply your loose powder.

    STEP 5: Place a small amount of blush on the brush and gently tap off any excess. Or, place a small amount of cream on your middle finger.

    STEP 6: Look in the mirror and smile.

    STEP 7: Place powder blush on the apple of your cheek and gently brush up your cheekbone toward your hairline. Dot cream blush beginning at the apple, and gently blend up the cheekbone toward the hairline.

    STEP 8: Focus your blush at the outside of your face near your hairline if you have a fuller face. For high cheekbones, concentrate blush in the center of your face to accentuate your bones.

    STEP 9: Blend a little blush down your cheek for a little more natural, less dramatic look.

    Tips & Warnings

    For rosier cheeks, consider gel or liquid tints. Wash your hands after use, as these products may stain the hands.

    Remember that the lighter your skin tone, the lighter your blush color should be.

    Wash brushes regularly with a makeup remover or nonsoap cleanser.

    Avoid following the underside of your cheekbones, which makes for an artificial and unbecoming look.

    You need a good brush that is large and round with full bristles. Get a good coating of blush on the ends of all the bristles and then tap off the excess. Starting at the apple of your cheek, work in full circles along your cheekbone to your temples. For a fresh sunkissed look, if your blush is light enough, go across your forehead, chin, eyebrow bone, just under the browline and down your nose. Be sure to do a lighter application in these areas than along your cheeks. It will give your face good healthy looking color!

    You just have to make sure that you don't have too much blush on your brush before you apply it. Work and practice on blending better and it will look more natural. Also, do not apply too much or it will tend to stand out.

    positioned the blush on your brush, tapping off any extra or positioned a dab of gel on your arms..check out the replicate and smile. This helps you artwork out the place the 'apple' of your cheek is. on the grounds which you prefer a healthful flush, it rather is terrific to prepare blush purely to apples of your cheeks. shop coloration easy & blended. once you're utilising gel or cream, NYC makeup artist Carlo Geraci (in O magazine) shows dabbing it on along with your center finger, then combination along with your ring & center finger. The sparkling finger will p.c.. up any extra blush.
