Hello ALL you sweet makeup addicts ! :) Today we are going to talk about Blush ! :)

Blush helps to make your face glow and look more alive. Lets see how to apply blush in a right way .

1) Use blush according to your skin and hair color:

Blond and ginger hair with olive complexion – blush of oranges tones.
♣ Dark and auburn haired with fair complexion – pastel blush .
♥ Pale or grey skin – salmon, coral or pink blush.
Bright ginger hair or wheat blond hair and radiant complexion – peach and golden brown blush.
♥ Dark and almost brown skin – plum, fuchsia or chocolate blush.

2) Apply blush according to your face shape .

Oval Shaped Face
Makeup Tip: Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks to achieve the best look for your face shape. :cool:
Rectangular or Oblong Shaped Face
Makeup Tip: For a rectangular or oblong face shape, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and along the cheekbones towards your ears in order to make the face appear shorter. It is best to apply the blush towards the ears rather than up into the hairline as applying the blush up into the hairline will create a longer face shape which should be avoided with an oblong shaped face.
Square Shaped Face:
Makeup Tip: Apply blush slightly under the cheekbones and sweep towards ears rather than up into the hairline.
Round Shaped Face
Makeup Tip: Apply blush slightly under your cheekbones and brush on an upwards angle into your hair line in order to create a less rounded and more narrow look. Avoid applying blush to the apples of the cheeks.

3)Choose your blush type . Apply blush according to your skin type ;)
Oily skin – Powder blush , Cheek stain

Dry & Mature skin – Cream/ gel (mousse)
Comination – Powder , cream

4) How to Apply Blush?
Whichever type you choose, its shade should match your natural coloring, so try to pick one that reflects your colour when you blush normally.
Cream blush is usually applied with the fingers on bare skin or on top of foundation. Powder blush is applied with a medium-sized flat brush on top of your facial powder. You may apply powder blush on bare skin or over foundation, but be sure to take the blush sparingly on a very soft brush so it doesn’t streak. :mrgreen: Add a thin layer and blend to see how you like the brightness, then add more if necessary .

Good quality blush brush :

A blush brush is the best choice; never use a small, cheap brush. If you use a cheap brush, you’ll have a cheap looking result. I love Ecotools brush for applying blush .

Beauty Tip 1 : It is suggested that to select the right color of blush, make a fist for about ten seconds, and the resulting color on your fingers is the color that you want to match.

Beauty Tip 2 : If you’re planning to wear full makeup, don’t apply blush until the rest of your face is complete.

Beauty Tip 3 : Do a fish face, and apply the blush. This help you find the apple of your cheeks. Don’t smile, that bring your cheeks up, and can make your blush to low .
