If you don’t regularly apply blush in fear of looking like a clown, you’re not giving yourself a chance! Anyone can flawlessly wear it by fine-tuning their application technique and using a top-quality product. Here are some tips on how to hunt down the perfect blush for your skin tone and flaunt it like a pro.

1. Try and try again.
Similar to concealer and foundation, you’ll want to try a few different blushes before settling on one for your skin tone. Glamour magazine recommends doing the pinch test – pinch your cheeks to see which shade of blush best matches your face. If you want to avoid the pain, applying a couple of varieties can help you achieve the same goal.

2. Avoid shimmery blush.
Unless you’re going to a high school dance, you should avoid shimmery blush that can potentially create an unnatural look. Instead, opt for a product such as Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush for a flawless appearance.

3. Look for brightness.
DailyMakeover.com states that your blush should make your face brighter and help you turn heads. In the end, the right product should be able to anchor your entire look and pull it all together.

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
