2. Prepare. If you’re using a powder, lightly sweep a medium-sized fluffy brush through the blush and then tap it to remove any excess. If you’re using a cream or gel, dab a little on your ring finger.
- Start with just a little blush — it’s easier to add more to your face than to take off too much of it.
3.Do a fish face, and apply the blush. This help you find the apple of your cheeks. Don’t smile, that bring your cheeks up, and can make your blush too low.
- The apples are the round rises where you naturally blush.
- Make strokes with the brush from your cheeks (towards your nose) to the side of your face (towards your ears). Try not to make diagonal lines, as these won’t appear natural but will risk being clown-like. Excess product can be blended toward the ear from the middle of the eye.
- Use a clean brush for blending.
- Brush downward at the end of blending, to allow the facial hairs to lie smoothly on your skin’s surface.
- For a more youthful look, make sure to apply the blush on each side no lower than your nostril and no closer to your nose than your pupil.
