Blush Glory

Good morning ladies...Here are some blush tips for you...

-First choose the colour using nature as your guide. Fair skin looks great in rose, olive in peach & dark skin in apricot or even red.
-Now that you have the colour, choose the right formula for your skin type. Powder is typically best for oily & combo skin. Cream is great for dry skin. Liquid and gel are great for oily skin.
-Apply foundation, eye colour & lipstick. While blush is usually your 2nd-to-last makeup step (before powder), you should experiment with what works best for you.
-Use a professional full brush, but don’t use the same brush you use for your powder.
-Put the blush on your brush, tapping off any excess or put a dab of gel on your fingers.
-Look into the mirror and smile. This helps you figure out where the ‘apple’ of your cheek is.
-Since you want a healthy flush, it’s best to apply blush only to apples of your cheeks.
-If you’ve gone a bit too heavy on the powder blush, a bit of translucent powder over it will calm it down. For cream blush, blot the colour off with a tissue. Since gel & liquid blush ‘stain’ the cheeks, the only way to lighten them is it wash your face, moisturize and reapply your makeup, this time more sparingly.
-Finish your look with a sweep of translucent powder.
