This Is The ONLY Way You Should Be Applying Blush

By  | 

I’ve made it abundantly clear how much I love blush. It’s the easiest way to add dimension, colour, and health to your face. No matter how horribly late you are (and when are you not?), a swipe of blush across the cheeks makes you look well put together. It has a brightening effect on the complexion and instantly perks you up.

However, how and where you apply it makes all the difference. What you are aiming for is to look flushed — like you are glowing with health and vitality (and not clown-ish). So ditch the popular way of swiping blush across the apples of your cheeks for this far more flattering technique.

Instead of applying blush directly on the apples (where it’s usually most concentrated), suck in your cheeks and apply blush in the hollows of your cheeks in light tapping motions. Blend the remaining product in an upward direction from the apples to the cheekbones.

When you apply most of the product in the hollows of your cheek, you softly cut the cheek to create dimension and get just enough colour on the apples to brighten your complexion. You end up looking naturally flushed but not made up or sculpted. This technique works exceptionally well for those who have round faces.
