BLUSH BASICS





Natural Makeup

Radiant Cheeks

Prominent Cheekbones

Blush Application

Glowing Skin



Nothing makes a woman prettier than a splash of blush. It is used to simulate a natural glow and must look natural. Use it to add more colour to your complexion, for highlighting, or to accentuate your face shape.







Choose a blush that works with your skin tone, and apply it sparingly. Pink and apricot tones are the most common and the safest ones. In actuality, your "perfect" shade is the color of your cheeks when you are flushed or exercising. If your skin tone is darker, select deeper shades. Often times, women of dark colored skin tend to look good in a bronze colored blush....even better if it contains a hint of sparkle.






Be sure to follow skin care and preparation, foundation, concealer, dark under eye circle information before beginning blush application.

BLUSH PLACEMENT

1) Take a good, full blush makeup brush (not the tiny one that comes in the blush compact) and 'tap' onto the blush very lightly.

2) Now shake the brush a little. (Don't blow on it.)

3) Gracefully move the brush in small round circles focusing on the apple of the cheek and gradually evolving away. Another option is to apply in light strokes in the outward direction. Either one is fine.

4) Blend the color so it looks natural, and you'll have mastered the basics of beautiful blush!



IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE BLENDING, TRY APPLYING A LIGHTER SHADE...THE RIGHT COLOR OF BLUSH SHOULD ALMOST BLEND ITSELF.

My top pick in terms of blush color would have to be my BESTSELLER PRODUCT in my entire line. It is so soft and radiant and looks beautiful on. The blush bronzer duo can also be used as a bronzer as well as a blush to add that extra subtle glow to the rest of your face. Click on image for more info.



TIP: This regular BRONZER works great across the nose lightly. Why? Makes your nose look smaller, especially in photos.
