Beauty Basics: How To Apply Blush To Get A Natural Look

Foundation plays a vital role in beautifying the complexion. Base makeup can conceal skin flaws such as open pores or dark spots. Yet the coverage effect of makeup can mask the natural complexion and expression. A blush comes in handy to restore a healthy glow. A few dabs of color to the cheeks accentuate the natural tone of the complexion and bring out a transparent clarity and natural flush that seems to glow from within. Blush also adds dimension to the face. Depending on how it’s applied, it can sharpen facial contours or conjure a cute and charming impression.








1. Choose your blush type. Powder and gel blushes are good for oily skin; cream is best for normal to dry skin. Whichever type you choose, its shade should match your natural coloring, so try to pick one that reflects your colour when you blush normally

  • Select a color that will accent your existing best facial features and that won’t stand out too much. Bright red may not look great on a pale person but can be terrific on a bronzed brown skin tone.
  • If you’re pale, try a soft pink color or maybe even something with a little tan and pink in it.
  • Depending on your skin tone, you might need a lighter or a darker color. Dark skin needs a lighter color, whereas light skin may need a more natural color such as brown or tan.
  • It is suggested that to select the right color of blush, make a fist for about ten seconds, and the resulting color on your fingers is the color that you want to match.


2. Purchase some quality blush brushes. A blush brush is the best choice; never use a small, cheap brush. If you use a cheap brush, you’ll have a cheap looking result. Avoid makeshift items such as cotton wool balls or powder puffs as these do not work well with the pigment in the blush.

3. Provide for a well lit space when adding your blush. Consider obtaining a lighted makeup mirror which will help emphasize your features and clarify what you are doing. Prepare prior to doing your makeup by washing your face, brushing your teeth, and putting on any foundation, cover-up, and bronzer that you regularly use.
