Many women shy away from blush, afraid
that they will look harsh and over-done. The correct technique will
help you avoid that problem!
The right way to
Smile or suck in your cheeks to locate the apples of your cheeks.
Begin at the center of the apple and apply blush up to the corner of
the eye and the temple. Blush should never go below the bottom of
your nose, or any closer in than the iris of your eye. Applying
blush high on the face makes your eyes sparkle.
After applying blush, blend with a
dry makeup sponge. Use the edge of the sponge like an eraser on the
outer edges of the applied blush to buff away any lines of
Never apply blush below the cheekbones.
This tripe of color only creates an illusion that brings the face down
and makes you look older.
When the seasons change, change your blush! Deeper, rich colors for fall
and winter, paler tines for spring and summer.
Note for oily skin:
Excess oil causes the skin to grab color causing your blush to darken as
the day goes on. Avoid this by powdering often, not with blush but with
pressed translucent powder.
