Blushes are perhaps the trickiest part of makeup. A little bit more can make you look clownish while a subtle touch may not be noticeable. So, check out some useful tips and tricks to apply blush – a way that it looks natural and sexy.
How to Choose Blush
A pinch on the cheek will instantly show the color of the blush you need. A one-shade darker is what you will usually need. A beige color with slight pinkish tinge works wonders for all skins. Peach shade brightens up a fair skin while rosy pink shade with matte finish looks good on medium skin. For dark skin, rose color and deep oranges gives the subtle glow without making the face look pale or worn out.
How to Apply Blush
Practically everyone using a blush will know that it is best to apply the blush on the apple of the cheek. However, depending on the contour of the face and skin color one has to extend the application a little more towards the temples or just on the cheek. Many users find it easy to put on the blush before applying the foundation as it looks more natural than the other way round. And, those dressing up for a romantic dinner should ideally put a romantic pink color with shiny powder as the highlight.
It is best to use is with a fan brush. Make sure that it should not look like a sloppy patch on the cheek – but, a subtle glow or a tinge. Newbie users should start applying with a cream-based blush that is typically a sheer and blends evenly in the skin. Don’t forget to consider the other makeup you are planning to use. If the face has many layers of makeup, make sure that lighter blush is applied. On the contrary, one should put on a heavy blush, if there is practically no makeup on the face.
