Blush makeup is an important tool in your makeup kit. Not only does it help to enhance your healthy glow, it can also be used to define your bone structure for the appearance of model-perfect cheekbones. If you aren’t comfortable with using blush, the following tips should help.
To choose the right blush, you need to find the correct shade for your skin tone. For the most natural look, chose the color that your turn when you become flushed – this is a good tip for those with fair skin. Pinching or slapping your cheeks will also help you find this natural color.
When using blush to define your cheekbones, you also want to find bronzer blush makeup that is about a shade darker than your natural skin tone. That will be used to deepen the slope of your cheekbones.
Bronzer blushes are also ideal for people of all skin tones to add a healthy all-over glow.
Next, you need to choose the right blush formula for your skin type. Most people are familiar with powder blush, but it is only one of the several options available.
Powder blush: this type of blush is best for normal to oily skin types, and is applied with a blush brush.
Cream/mousse blush: these are ideal blush formulations for normal to dry skin types.
Gel and liquid blush: these formulations of blush makeup are well suited to oilier skin types. Some gel formulations will be hydrating enough for skin that is on the drier end of the spectrum. As well, many liquid and gel blush products (such as Benefit’s Benetint) are also designed to color your lips as well.
Before applying blush, it is best to apply your foundation. When applying a powder blush, it is best to use a large blush brush because it will be more efficient at distributing the blush on your skin. Grin and use the apples of your cheeks as a guide for where to apply the blush, either with a brush for powder or your fingers for the other types. When using bronzer along with blush to sculpt your cheekbones, apply it on the slightly-sunken area between your cheekbones and your jaw. Don’t forget to use foundation or powder afterward to blend in your blush if necessary.
Following these steps will help you get the hang of using blush and give you tools for creating a more refined look.
