How to apply blush:

  • Don’t put an excessive amount on the brush. It’s better to apply several layers of product instead of having to remove the excess. In many cases, you may have to wash your face and start over again.
  • When you apply the blush or color, do it just below your cheek line.
  • Then, Without adding more blush to the brush, soften the lines with light circular movements. To make it easier to see your cheeks, you can sink them in by making a puckered face.
  • Once you have the blush spread out, continue to apply a light strip of brightener, just on your cheek line. However, this shouldn’t be left as a line that looks excessively white or overdone.
  • With a slightly finer brush than the one used above, soften the effect of the brightener as you get closer to your hair line.
