What we're gonna try to achieve with blushers is a healthy flush that looks natural and help enhance the cheeks. So here's a tutorial on applying powder blush as well as liquid blushers.
So here's an un-blushed cheek and where we're gonna put a shimmering blush to bring out the cheekbones (I prefer a bronze color) and a pinkish blush on the apples.
- Do a kissy face if you can't see your cheekbones clearly
- Use your blush brush to apply a shimmering blush along the cheekbone
- Then, apply a pinkish blush on the apples of the cheek
- To find the apples, smile and you'll find two little balls at the front of your cheek
- Don't forget to brush on some blush on your T-zone which is your forehead, nose and chin; for a more natural look
- Buff harsh lines in circular motion by using a kabuki brush or powder brush
- Dot on your blush on the apples extending a little to the cheek bone
- For cheek stains, I recommend only dotting on the apples
- Blend well upwards along the cheek bone and make sure you don't get any harsh lines. Work quickly with cheek stains
- For cream and liquid blushers, you may also use a sponge to blend
And the effect...
