Blend light dabs of color in wide, circular sweeping motions along the cheekbones
Blushes come as powders, creams, or liquids. The powders are the easiest to use, especially with professional blush brushes. Brushes with abundant soft bristles hold plenty of powder for rendering natural gradations and finish. Start by putting ample blush powder on the brush, tapping off any excess powder over a tissue or the palm of your hand. Next, apply a light dab of color in wide, circular sweeping long along the lines of the cheekbones to create a soft effect without conspicuous borders. This will bring out a natural healthy, flushed look. For a more chiseled appearance, blend on the powder blush at a sharper angle of the brush along the cheek lines. Never apply the blush below the nose line, as this may create a droopy-cheeked effect and makes you look old. If you have high, prominent cheek bones, apply light colors in wide generous, circular strokes to soften the cheeks. Strong colors can easily draw too much attention to the checks by emphasizing their height and volume. Avoid too reddish colors and let the powder blend naturally into the skin.
