  • Clean your brushes with baby wipes. If you don’t keep your brushes clean, they’ll gather bacteria and transfer it to your skin.
  • For a sexy look, dab a little shimmery blush on the highest point of your cheekbone nearest your eye.
  • Using powder blush? Always sweep it in one direction. Going over & over or around and around causes streaks & can hurt your brush.
  • Cream blush is great for mature skin. It blends easily & therefore looks very natural. For gel or cream blush, dab a dot on the apple of the cheek and two smaller dots up the cheekbone. Blend the dots together up to the hairline.
  • Dusky pink blush will warm up any tired-looking skin.

Four things you should know about the products you use:

  • Products that suit one person will not necessarily suit another; it is a very individual thing.
  • When using anything new on your skin, look out for reactions such as breakouts or rashes.
  • Don’t use more than one new product at a time so that you can make sure which ones suit you and which don’t.
  • Don’t use cosmetics that are more than 12 months old, especially on your face.
