You might be a pro at applying your lip liner, eyeshadow and mascara, but how do you fare when it comes to blush? Many women choose to skip blush altogether in favor of a simple routine of foundation and concealer. However, wearing blush can instantly add warmth and beauty to your overall look. Here are some tips on how to apply it flawlessly to top off your makeup routine.
1. Use a small brush.
Redbook magazine reports that using a small brush when applying blush can make all the difference. This will give you more control as you put it on your cheeks and can reduce the risk of putting on too much.
2. Let your apples guide you.
The apples of your cheeks are great places to start when applying blush. Try smiling in the mirror as you use it to further define them and add your blush accurately.
3. Finish it off with translucent powder.
Oprah.com recommends topping off your blush with a translucent powder to give your face a little more radiance before you head out the door. Just remember – a small amount goes a long way!
