Choose a blush color that is close to the color of your cheeks when you flush.

This will make your blush look as natural as possible. If you don’t have any idea about the color of your cheeks when you flush, you can always spank your cheeks and use the resulting color as your guide. Remember though to do this test when you’re still in your room. People might find it odd when they see you spanking yourself. Another way is to match your blush shade with your lip color.

Choose the preparation that goes well with your skin type.

For example, if you have oily skin you might want to use pressed type blushes rather than the liquid blush. If you have dry skin, you might want to use cream blush as these tend to melt into your skin more and will give you a more blended and natural look.

However, for best results make up experts say that you combine both powder and cream blush because it will help make the blush stay longer and last longer so you won’t have to keep on reapplying it.

If you have an oval face

If you have an oval face you don’t really have to focus on contouring simply because the slope of the face provides a natural contour already. What you have to do when applying blush is to apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks. This will give you a healthy, more natural glow. For a night in the town, you can put blush on the bridge of your nose.

It all lies in the brush.

Yes, having the right brush will help you apply the blush better. See those tiny brushes that come along with your blush? Well get rid of them; using these brushes will only result to an uneven and unnatural look. Instead, use a full brush as this will help you spread the blush evenly on your cheeks and it also gives you better control.

When applying blush, start with the apple of your cheeks.

If you don’t know where the apples are, you can always face the mirror and smile. Doing this will help you spot the apples more accurately.

If you want to have a healthy and natural flush

If you want to have a healthy and natural flush, then use the blush only on the apples of your cheeks. However, if you want contouring, you can draw the blush up in line with your cheekbones.

To avoid going heavy on your blush

To avoid going heavy on your blush especially if you are using a powder, do not forget to tap off excess powder. Always tap off excess powder from the brush before application.

In case you placed too much blush

In case you placed too much blush, no need to worry because all you have to do is apply or dab a bit of translucent powder on your cheeks. This troubleshooting tip is only applicable when you are using powder blush.

On the other hand, if you are using cream blush you can use a piece of tissue paper to tone it down. For gel and liquid blush, there is no other way to correct it than by washing your face and reapplying your make up.
