First, the right color will look natural and the wrong one will not match your skin tone and thus it will stand out. The second test is the intensity of the color or how deep it looks on your face. If you are fair, you want just a hint of color, the more translucent the better. If you are strong in coloring, with olive or dark skin, you need greater depth and intensity with blush powder to accentuate and show off your good looks.

Natural Look

So the right way to go about using blush makeup is to use it in such a way that you make sure that it looks natural.

Blush makeup is rather different from both eye make up and lipstick. Remember that a blush is like a foundation or it is a base make up. Therefore ideally blush makeup is not meant to be shown off. The most appropriate way to make sure that your blush doesn't stand out like a shaded outline of your cheeks is by always applying blush before you do your eye make-up and put on the lipstick. Or else, it will be seem to compete with your eyes and lips in your mental mirror and that is the very reason why you will apply too much blush.

It is also of great help if you can make sure that you have a well-lit mirror before which you can stand or sit, whichever is more comfortable and apply the blusher. Or else you will tend to apply too much just because you did not have a clear view. So a good and well lit mirror is essential just because you are able to notice yourself and you don’t end up applying more amount of color than you should.

If you still cannot be sure and you are still feeling confused then to help you out of your confusion we suggest that you should sweep on no more than 3-4 brush strokes of blush. It is unlikely that you will go wrong after all these tips!

PUTTING ON BLUSH:


Applying Blush On Face

Blush is generally the last cosmetic to be used on face while doing makeup. But we definitely suggest that you do it before you do your eye makeup or apply your lipstick so that you don’t over do the blush. Remember that the right way to apply a blusher is to make it look like a natural glow on your face.

The way you will be applying blush on your face will also differ with the facial shape you have. The right application of blusher can give your face any desired shape and make it look longer or wider, as you want it to look! Here we have some tips only for you to use while you apply blush to get the right look you want:

A modest amount of shine and glitter on the most raised point of your cheekbone near the eyes can give you a diva look in no time.

Draw attention to the cheekbones by using a slightly deep color there and balance it by blending it down the cheek to get a more natural look.

Always using dirt free and hygienic blush brushes is very important in order to keep away any bacteria transfer in skin and therefore you should clean them and keep them free from contamination with non-soapy cleansers and baby wipes.

Cream blush can be blotted off using a tissue while applying translucent powder can dilute powder blush. However, gel and liquid blush have to be washed from face and the makeup has to be redone.
Frosted Blush

You can use cream blushes on your lips for a hint of soft color.  Always apply it by using the tip of your finger.

Darkish pink blush gives certain warmth to your face and freshens up the face, especially on the tendons below the ears. However remember that blush on your chin may not look good, if the skin tone of your neck is lighter than the skin tone of your face.

Frosted blush may not be a very great option for you and always remember that frosted makeup shades on lips or eyes are more in vogue during night parties.

Yet if you want, you can get the frozen look by applying a lighter shade of frosted eye shadow or lipstick such as gold, silver, light pink, peach, champagne and beige and of course blushers of the same shades and brush it on the highest point of your cheekbones.

Frosted highlighting powder is also readily available in the shops and you can use these powders anywhere on your face!
Apply Blush On Cheeks

The easiest and perfect way to get those deliciously rosy cheeks is by simply going for the gels and liquids. In this case they are simply unbeatable as they soak the skin with a warm color. Do not forget to wash your hands after you apply the gels or liquid blushers on your face.

Now you must be wondering how to apply these gels and liquid blushes?

Well for gels simply touch it up lightly as a dot on the apple of your cheeks and lightly touch up the cheekbone with two small spots and rub them in small circular motions to blend them well all the way from the cheeks to the hairline.

Make the face look broader and larger by looking straight into a well-lit mirror and then apply the blusher on the cheekbone from beneath the center of the eye to the temple. Suck in cheeks and use the deepest shade in the hollow making a 'C' shape up to the temple. Make sure your brush strokes do not go any higher than your eyebrows. Use a lighter shade on the highest point of the cheekbones and stop applying the blush right ahead of the under eye area. You can also add a small amount of blush on the tip of your nose, forehead and chin.

Don’t ever use blusher on underside of cheekbones.

You will see that most often the small blush brush that comes along with the cosmetic mostly won’t be of any utility. The big, round and full brush gives a sophisticated look of having your make up done by experts! And it will also give an appearance on the whole which will make you look softer and desirable. It is also very essential to use different brushes for the different blush creams and the powder.

Always apply powder blush in one single direction to prevent it from smudging all over your face.
Blush On Cheekbones

The best way that you should use to apply a blush is to take the blush on the brush and pat off all extra powder in the box itself. Just incase, if you are using gel or cream blush, put some of the gel or cream on your fingers.

The best shades for blush are warm shades like golden browns then cool, grayish browns, specially when use it to outline your cheeks.

If you want to find and locate the exact spot where the apple of your cheeks are, then look into the mirror and smile and then apply the brush in strokes that go upwards in a curve from your cheekbone to your hairline. Make sure the color of your blush is on the lighter side and well blended after you apply it so that it looks natural.

If you want your face to look longer and bigger then you should you should apply the blush in such a way that your blush is centered on the outer area of your face and near your hairline. Suck in your cheeks and use the darkest color in the hollow created and make a 'C' shape, no higher than the eyebrows on the side of your face. Apply a lighter shade above your cheekbones and below your eyes use a darker blush shade to help slim down the face. Apply lighter shades of blush on apple of your cheeks and chin.

VARIETY OF BLUSHES TO CHOOSE FROM:

Applying blush will definitely add a warmth and color to the face and it is a form of makeup that is mostly applied mainly to the cheeks. Most of us women always wish and desire to look naturally beautiful with a glowing complexion with a warm tinge to our face to give it a gorgeous yet soft look. Blushing and blush is applied as a part of makeup especially for the particular purpose to look naturally stunning!

Blushers are usually available today in the market in a large variety of colors, tones and consistencies. They may come in the form of powder, or as cream, or as liquids or gels and each of these varieties have a special utility and are perfect for different situations.

You can apply powder blush more easily than say for example, applying liquid and cream blush. The latter should always be applied before powder. You can apply blush very easily simply by sweeping it downward from the ear to mid-cheek. Most often, it is applied from top of the ear till the end of the apple of the cheek.

The perfect shades in blush should be chosen on the basis of which color comes closest to your skin tone and complement your own complexion. Hint of light shade or nude shade of blush applied on your cheek is often perfect for that natural glow with a hint of color.
Perfect Shades Of Blush

It is also very essential and vital to test the look and shade of blush on your face with full makeup to see that it makes you look balanced or not. So that the finishing appearance is natural and you don’t end up looking like a brightly done up Christmas tree.

You generally have to tone down or lighten the blushes that are of a darker shade than natural blushing colors of the cheek especially if it is for the daytime. You can do this by dabbing on some translucent or sheer powder over the blush. For the makeup for the evening or the night you can apply a bit more amount of the blush although you should decide that according to your mood and what you look you want to sport.

Applying blush as a part of your makeup can right away cheer up and freshen up a dreary and dowdy face and help you to hide the tired look on your face after a whole day of hectic activity.

Although as a word of caution do remember that don’t over use it that means if you don’t apply blush with self control and if you use too much of blush on your face then you will inevitably end up looking like a bright palette of colors!

The right way to find the shade of your natural blush color is simply bend down and touch your toes for two to three minutes and then stand straight up. The color of your cheeks then is the right blush color for you that you should go for. Yet another way to choose the shade of the right blush color for yourself is to go for the same shade as the one you are wearing on your the lip or to go with the shade of the lipstick that you are wearing. Remember shades of reds and pinks are for the winters while peaches, beiges and warm hues are more suitable for the summers.

NOW LET US SEE WHAT TYPE OF BLUSH GOES WITH WHICH TYPE OF SKIN:

If you have a combination or an oily skin in that case opt for powder blush as that would work well for these skin types. Oily skin type people can also try the liquid and gel blush but cream blush is strictly the best option for dry skin type people. Staining blushers are exclusively for skin that is well-moisturized. They need to be mixed properly with the skin and made one with the natural complexion as fast as possible as they tend to dry up very speedily.

For getting a look of healthy suntan, put on a little bronzer powder on forehead, chin and nose. An eye shadow, which is of shades that are too red, pink or rosy for your taste can be used as blush and some of it can be mixed up with Vaseline, lip-gloss or lip balm for a similar lip color to be used on the lip.
Blush Makeup for Type Of Skin

A dark or bright shade of cream blush can be lightened up readily by mixing it with a little bit of concealer on your palm. A brown shade of blush is perfect for toning down the color of blush and can also be used to outline your face, or as eye shadow or bronzer. It can also be mixed with powder for sheer blushed look.

Makeup blush comes in many types and as we said before cream blush works well on older ladies whose skin tend to become dryer with age. However cream blush can also be of great use to teenagers and youngsters if they want a sheer hint of color like what you get with a gel blush.

Once your blush is in done, take a cotton ball or a makeup sponge and blend until you have just a light trace of natural looking blush color. Remember to keep it natural is your aim while applying blush makeup. Blush make up should be understated and restrained. Subtle is the mantra of makeup blush. No strips of extra and garish looking color should remain on your face.

When you hear of ‘Natural Blush’, you may be unsure of what color of makeup blush should you go for? You are looking for natural color from makeup blush. Take a good look at your face when you come indoors from the chilly and windy outdoors or after you do exercises. Then the color of your cheeks that you will see is your natural color and the exact part of your cheeks where you blush naturally, as well.

Coming to makeup and applying both blush and lipstick always remember to match your lipstick to your blush. For example red lipstick and apricot blush cant go together. Stick to these pairs of lipsticks and blushes:


1. Red lipstick with reddish or pink blush.

2. Rose lipstick with rose blush.

3. Pink lipstick with pink blush.

4. Coral or apricot lipstick with peachy toned blush.

5. Brown toned lipstick with bronze shades of blush with the same undertones as the lipstick.

While applying your blush stroke to put on your blush makeup, use strokes that sweep upward motions for unblemished and perfect application.

To find that right part of your Cheek where you should put on your blusher it is okay if you aren’t sure of it yourself. In that case to find out where to apply your blush, smile big and you will find your natural cheek. Then just brush on your blush while you keep smiling. In this way you will have an amazingly accurate and faultless application of blush makeup each time!
Blush Brush Fits The Cheeks

Find a blush brush that perfectly fits the size of the apple of your cheek when you smile. A size huger than that and you'll get blush where you don't want it. You ideally should not use a large blush brush for putting on blush makeup. Those are intended for putting on shimmery powders.

Lift up the blush with your blush brush up by lightly tapping the blush with the tips of the bristles of the brush. If you sweep the brush across the color, you'll pick up much more color than about the color you will need. This way you waste a lot of your blush makeup. So to save your blush from being wasted gently hit the ends of the bristles about 2-3 times onto the color. Shake off any extra color. You should hardly be able to see the color on the brush. Don't worry about that, you will have enough on to do the trick!

When putting on the blush, don't "sweep" or "stroke" the color across the cheeks. You'll usually end up smudging the color on, and then have to go back to 'correct' and 'blend' the color with your skin tone. The correct alternative way to put on blusher is simply to smile, and then tap on gently going across your cheeks. By tapping the color onto the brush, and then tapping in onto the cheeks. This way you will keep away from putting on excess color, smudging and such other blunders. Tapping on merges the color for you and your blush makeup becomes one with your natural skin tone. You can always add more color if you think you need to.

What do you do when the blush color becomes too bright while taking picking it up with your blush brush? Don’t worry. Simply swipe your blush brush across a Kleenex to remove any extra color, and then pick up some loose powder. Sweep over and blend your blush into your skin. You'll get a softer, more 'real' look to your blush.

Soft and silky powder is made to draw attention to and outline the cheek bone structure. Sheer, powder blush will blend with your skin tone uniformly and easily with natural and long-lasting glowing color.

ONE SMALL BLUSH TIP:


Ideal Blush Make UpThe ideal blush makeup should be such that it should care for your skin and give some color to your cheeks!

Blush makeup can be used to make your cheekbones looked higher or to "lift" your cheekbones and outline your face.

Draw a mental line downwards from the center of your eye in your imaginations. This is the extreme point on the cheek till where blush should be put on.

Sweep the blush along the cheekbone from hair line downwards to prevent from putting on too much blusher color on your cheek and making yourself look like an overdone Christmas tree!

The new creamy new rouge is a pure cream blush that mixes with your natural skin tone easily and uniformly with perfection to create a satisfying and natural-looking finish. The cream rouge is easy to wear and will give your skin tone and texture an instantaneous 'lift'. It warms up even dull skin and thus ends up giving you a healthy glowing skin texture and tone.

BLUSH MAKE-UP MADE SIMPLE FOR YOU:


Natural Blush MakeUpBlush makeup should give you a balmy, natural and innate looking color of blood rushing to your cheeks - this is what the real or the natural blush does. Blush makeup adds intensity to your face by outlining and accentuating your cheeks. It brings out your personal or your inner glow.

However here we feel sorry to say, that because blush comes in a broad diversity of types, colors, shades and tones that it very easy and very likely that you get confused when it comes to choose which shade is just the suitable one for your skin. So here are a few useful tips for learners, lay person and amateurs and the skillful and proficient equally. Read carefully to get all the necessary information on one of the cosmetic industry's best inventions - blush makeup of course!

To decide and select the suitable shade of blush for your skin tone is very important. This is almost if not absolutely same as selecting the right shade for your foundation, concealer or eye shadow. It is difficult to point out and get the right one. To do this it would require you to understand the skin color theory. But, you don’t need to get worried as it is very simple. Moreover blushers today are very flexible and come in a variety of types and shades. They will mix with your skin tone with no trouble. However if you go wrong in the application of blush makeup then your face may end up looking worn out with colors that are all smudged or you may even look like a clown.

You may wonder about the factors that have to be considered while selecting a blusher. Well there are some much uncomplicated things to take into account like skin tone, intensity and the context.

Skin tone

You have to understand whether your skin is of a warm or of a cool tone.
Incase your skin tone has a yellow undertone then you should go for cool colors like mauve, rose and pinkish plum which will look better in your skin tone.

If your skin tone is of the olive shade then colors like orange, copper, almond or peach is appropriate for olive-skinned people like you.

Incase you are very dark-skinned your skin can have a bluish tone and in that case you can go for dark red or auburn color blush makeup.

Those of you who have a neutral look can go for any color.

People with pink skin tone can get away without a blush at all. And if you want you can enhance it further with suitable colors that complement your natural skin tone.

Skin intensity


Skin IntensityRemember the darker the skin you have, the intense the color of the blush. Similarly it goes that the lighter the skin you have, the lighter the blush.

However intensity of the color of your blush is very crucial for your look. It can make or spoil your look.  So having the right intensity of color is important. Blush color that will be too weak compared to your skin tone will not even be seen.

Ladies who are of a fair complexion may use shades for blusher that range from a light pinkish red to beige. Fair women can also apply powder blush on top to have that translucent effect.

Ladies with a medium skin tone should go for blush shades like warm pinks, brown-based pinks or soft beige.

For the olive-skinned women we suggest that you go for blush makeup of shades like brown-red, soft berry, honey beige or plum pink.

Women who have dark skin tone can use blush colors of deep bronze, soft mahogany or cocoa.

Context

Also regard the color of your hair and eyes. Dark or black hair has a tendency to make the skin look lighter. So a more intense and deeper color of blush than the one we have suggested for the different skin-tone types may be needed.

Neutral shades like a bronzer should go well and be suitable for both blonde hair and darker skinned people.

Peach is a safer and a suitable color for red heads or those with loud hair colors, since the blush color matches up with and complements with the hair color.
Right Blush Color Selection

Another thing that you have to see is whether you are putting on makeup for daytime or night-time? Lighter shades and natural-looking colors like warm pinks, beige, peach, and mauve is more appropriate for evening affairs. A bronzer can also be a replacement for blushers if you want a sun-kissed look.

The right blush-color selection is certainly easier than choosing the right life partner! Trust us on it. All you need to do is do some physical activities like exercise for about few minutes till your cheeks turn pink as blood circulates and rushes to your face. The flush on your face right after a physical activity is your natural blush.

If you are still confused and unable to understand what should be the right shade that is best for your skin tone and for you then ask someone from the make-up counter. Since they are professionals who have charts and color wheels to help you chose the right blush shade, it is best that you consult them to help with the selection of the right blush color.

Applying the blush before you buy is also very important. If you’re contemplating to buy a blush, keep in mind that you won’t get to know the actual shade of the blusher until and unless you try it on. Put it on the inside of your forearm to understand the shade. If it blends with your skin tone, then you have got the right shade of blush!

Trying out the right shade and blush color will be in need of a face with full make-up on. This will help you to know if your blush is in sync with the rest of your make-up. It is important to see to it that your blush makeup will in tune with the color of your lipstick. Sweep over a little blush to the tip of your nose and chin. This helps to give your face a defined and poised look.

To make sure that your blush will mix with the rest of your make-up, sweep on your blusher at the beginning or else it will compete with your eye shadow and lipstick. Incase you discover that you have put on too much blush makeup; there is no need to worry. Simply get a dry and clean tissue or makeup sponge to reduce the colors. Bear in mind, this will all be in futile until and unless you don’t know the correct way to put on blush makeup.

Blush Make UpBlush make up is particularly helpful to highlight and accentuate your cheekbones.  It should be put on in moderation and with restraint to give your face the naturally flushed look that you get right after doing some physical activity or right after you come home from the outdoors.  To understand and identify where your natural blush spots are look into the mirror right after physical workout or after you return from out door activity. Those spots on your face rather on your cheeks where you see a flushed reddish-pink glow are the spots where you should apply your blush make up.

Blush makeup is available in a many shades and colors.  You should choose one that matches with your face skin tone and looks natural on you.  For example if your skin has pink or blue undertones, you should go for blushers of colors from the rose family.  And suppose your skin has yellow undertones then we suggest you to go for blushers from the peach family which will work best for you.  Dark women or women of color simply look gorgeous with blushers of shades from the burgundy family.

After you select the right blush type. It is time to learn the right ways of wearing blusher you must remember that it is a preferred fact that the color of your blush should go with the color of your cheeks just as it looks right after you exercise or come back from the outdoors. This make up color is usually a little darker than your normal skin color.
Blush For Deeper Shade

Be alert and cautious and look at yourself in the mirror carefully while putting on the blush to make sure that the blusher doesn't get in your hairline.

If you like you may use a deeper shade of blusher to define and outline your face.  You should start wearing your blusher from the earlobe downward to mid-cheek.  Then you should use a lighter shade of blush to draw attention to the cheek.

If you want a healthy tanned or sun-kissed look to your face you can try using a peach- colored blusher.

If you already have a tanned complexion then you can apply bronzing powder to your cheeks instead of wearing a blusher.

Apply the foundation by dabbing on loose powder and then apply a powder blush over this.

If you ever look a little pale but do not have blush with you then simply give your cheeks a quick pinch! And you will get the color naturally!
Blush For Looking Pale

But suppose you look pale and are lucky enough to have a blusher with you. Then in that case, sweep your brush with a light stroke of blusher across your forehead up by your hairline or right above your brows where the sun usually reflects on your face to give your face a glow.

Always keep in mind to use a blush brush the size of your cheek area so you don’t apply blush on other areas apart from the right spot. Thus you would do the mistake of applying blush in excess if you don’t use the brush of the exact size of your cheeks.

If you are lucky enough to have the rarest of rare blessing to be born with a perfect and unblemished complexion and you actually don’t need to wear foundation. Then for the natural look you could try wearing a liquid or crème, or gel blush.

Incase you are not sure of and don’t know about which color blush will suit your skin tone and face the best and work the wonders for you. Then in this case opt for blushers with pink or rose tone.  A pleasant rosy glow on your face is of course the most flattering for anyone and everyone.

Always remember to choose and go for a shade of blush that goes together with the shade of the lipstick that you’re wearing.

Remember that whenever you apply a gel or tint, apply it by sweeping the blusher in a circular motion around the “apple” of your cheeks and then move up and outward toward the hairline.

THE STEPS TO APPLY BLUSH MAKEUP CORRECTLY:

The first step to apply blush makeup is to get yourself a good and thick brush to apply your blush.
Apply Blush Make Up

The second step for applying blush is to put on your usual foundation and powder.

The third step is to take a look into the mirror and smile to locate the “apples” of your cheeks. Then, dab your blush brush on the powder, tap off the extra blush color, and brush it softly over the apple of your cheek, moving upwards toward the ear, with short, up-and-down vertical movements.

The fourth and final step is to mix your blusher and make it even with your skin tone by one soft horizontal sweep on top of the vertical ones. Use a makeup sponge and blot the sponge on top to remove the extra, or cover evenly with your usual powder.

And that’s it! You have got the look you wanted…as your face glows with color and you look gorgeous. And no one understands that the color on your face is actually the result of perfect application of blush makeup!

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BLUSHER MAKEUP BRUSH FOR YOURSELF:

Blusher MakeUp BrushFor blush makeup in particular and makeup in general, there is no amount of hesitation and uncertainty in the fact that makeup brushes are the most important tools.

If you are not choosy, picky and extremely selective about (to a peak of being obsessively finicky!) your makeup brushes. Then perhaps you have yet not come across or felt their ‘miraculous’ power.

Makeup brushes can work wonders for you or ruin your makeup especially when it comes to something as delicate as blush makeup that has to be subtle and understated.

Still not satisfied?  Then you must ask any professional makeup artist. Makeup artists are very much emotionally involved with their brushes and care for them carefully to ensure they can achieve ‘miracle’ forever and ever, without fail. Their dexterity and abilities are improved with the right and high quality brushes. Even great makeup artists like the late Kevin Aucoin and William Tuttle could not think beyond their favorite brushes!

If you want to choose a high quality makeup brush then you must first understand what makes up a Makeup Brush and brushes in common. Because, comprehending this will enable you choose or buy quality makeup brush which with the right care can last for a very long time.

So to understand makeup brushes better you can say that a brush can be divided into three parts: Hair, Ferrule and Handle. The most vital part about selecting your cosmetic brushes, of course, is selecting the right Hair Type to do the job you want. Once, you know what hair type you are looking at, you can then look at the made up or construction of the brush on a whole like the construction of the ferrule and the handle. So, basically, you want to check for the following:

1. Hair (The Most essential concern):

Hair Of BlushCheck the hair type, density, cut and shape as they affect hair quality.
The hair type: Makeup Brush Hair Type is the most crucial aspect especially for choosing your makeup brush. The best and the choice of professional makeup artists is natural hair type. The hair quality affects the prices of makeup brushes and ranges from the finest and most expensive Kolinsky sable to the most common natural bristle. Kolinsky sable, squirrel, mink and weasel are used in top quality brushes. Other decent quality choices include Goat, Pony and hair blends. Synthetics such as Nylon and Taklon are best left for use on eyebrows and for applying foundations, respectively.

CUT: This refers to the method by which the hair is harvested. It makes an enormous difference because virgin, first-cut fur makes the softest makeup brush and can make not-so-high ‘grade’ hair types cosmetic brushes feel as soft as possible for that particular hair type. First-cut (Top grade) hair is also cruelty-free, as they are trimmed off from the tips of the fur. That is why they feel the softest on your skin. The best way to understand I presume, is to imagine how the tips of our own hair would feel after a hair cut. Blunt-cut hair refers to the ‘lower’ cut of the fur. They are much coarser and can feel prickly against your skin. Try to think of brushing cropped prickly hair against your face…OUCH that will hurt!

Blunt-cuts are widely used in lower quality cosmetic brushes because they are much cheaper than the first cut. Of course, this information is rarely provided but a good way to test is to look at the tips of the hair of the makeup brush. The finely pointed (natural-looking) ones are most likely the first-cut.

The shape and density determine whether they will perform the job intended, effectively and efficiently. You want the makeup brushes to do magic and do it fast!

Normally in the market, you will find three kinds of makeup brush shape – square cut, chisel cut, and round cut. No, we’re not discussing about diamonds here! When we talk about makeup brush shape we’re referring to the shape of the tips of the cosmetic brushes.

High quality brushes are hand made, not machine made, as hand shaped makeup brushes have their precious tips (first-cut) still in one piece. The machine cannot match up to the proficient hands of the ‘masters’. You may ask why so? Well, that’s because machines can’t ‘shape’ the makeup brushes without letting go of (trimming) the soft tips of the makeup brushes.

2. Ferrule (Metal part)

Check that it is seamless. That means, exactly that – no seams around it! Most makeup brushes are seamless. Metal types used include Aluminum (usually Aluminum Alloy as Aluminum by itself is impossibly soft), Copper and Brass (strongest). Whatever the metal type, ensure they are double crimped (2 circles around them) to avoid wobbly handles.
Handle Of Blush

3. Handle
Check that it is made from hard wood and that the length or overall weight feels good in your hand. The length of the handle is a matter of personal choice but usually most prefer around 7” or thereabouts.

Before you select a buy and decide to buy it, do compare the different products and prices that are available in the market. You will come across a wide variety in terms of qualities and prices and you can take your pick from the ones that you feel are soft and made with natural hair. The sales person can assist you to choose as they deal with brushes and thus have a fair knowledge and idea about them.

HIGH ON BLUSH!!

Blusher is one of the most difficult of makeup to apply. It must be mixed together perfectly with the natural skin tone so that there is no callous and rough edges standing out and your best features must be subtly enhanced.
Choosing the correct color for your skin tone is very crucial. The accurate color that will go with your natural skin tone will give you a healthy glow and a natural looking color!
High On Blush

The wrong color will make you look either pale or tired or like an overdone Christmas tree. Words of advice here, that is identify and understand your best features and then call attention to and accentuate your beautiful cheekbones or a high forehead or a perfect chin by using blusher to subtly draw attention to them.
See at the whole picture: that is always balance or match blusher to your lipstick color as well as your clothes.

Cheek color should be put on after foundation or on a clean and bare skin, if your skin looks good without foundation. Make sure to put on a fine layer of pressed or loose power on naked skin first, and then apply blusher. Applying a light coat of powder is necessary to keep oily areas from causing blush to get blotchy or streak.  And this is what makeup professional Peter Lamas advices (By Peter Lamas, BeautyWalk Founder). There are many things you have to choose from when it comes to blush makeup application. These things are:

• Formulas - pick and choose the one right for you.

• Color Selection - Match with your skin tone and wardrobe. Your blusher should complement your clothes and your skin tone.

• Application Tips – application methods are very important. So here are some Mistake-proof techniques that are sure to work wonders for you!

• Shape & Blush – blush makeup can hide your flaws and accentuate your beauty thus it can and does reshape your face with your blush

THE FOUR FORMS OF BLUSH MAKEUP THAT YOU CAN FIND IN THE MARKET:

So go ahead and indulge yourself and choose your blusher. While choosing it will always help if you remember some of the tips we have already mentioned in this article or we will remind you again in due course. Like for example cream blushers work exceptionally well for older and drier skin as they can make them look moisturized. On the other hand, you should go for powder blushers if you want your blush makeup to last for a really long time. The four types of blushes you can find today are:

Powder Blush– powder blushes are very popular. It has a soft, light and opaque appearance. Powder blush blends really well with your foundation after sprinkling on some translucent powder.
Cream Blush

Gel Blush– gel blushers are of sheer and delicate or fine colors. They really go well with the natural look.

Cream Blush– cream blushers have stronger colors and can be applied with no trouble over the natural face or over a creamy make up base.

Tint Blush- tint blushers usually have a sheer and therefore they are natural to look at. You can sweep it over quite easily over a moisturized face. 

Get Cheeky! Choose the right Cheek Color Formula that is just right for you.

There are several Blush Formulations. So go ahead and indulge your self as you are spoilt with choices. But come out victorious by selecting the one right for you that highlights your features and complements you in every whichever way possible!

So to speak elaborately now you know that the blush formulas are available in forms like: Powder, Crème, Cheek Pencil, Bronzer, Tinted Moisturizer…

Today there is a millions of ways to blush out there in the market. Go to your local cosmetic - counter and you can get different formulas.  Experiment with a few formulas from your favorite brands. Always keep your skin type - oily, normal or dry - in mind when testing blushers.

Here we bring you some more tips that you should keep in mind before you make your choice and buy. So we make it easier for you to choose among the different types and formulas that are available today!

Incase you are considering Powder Blush, remember Powder blush makeup is the popular of all types and a great all-time favorite. It is just right for any skin type as it suits all skin types well. It is light, sheer and natural to look at. It makes for convenience or easy for touchups during the day. Because it's sheer, it's easy to layer using two or more colors. Many women use beige or cocoa-brown tone to highlight cheekbones and temples and slim the sides of the nose, then superimpose it with a cheeky color for extra glow.
Gel Blush

If you are thinking about going for Crème Blush, then remember crème blush makes way for a great way to blush especially for normal to dry skin. Crème offers more strong color than powder, so use in moderation and in limited quantities and blend it well with your skin tone. Crème blushes are more than everything else perfect for evenings, under candlelight! Since crème formulas usually have the most moisturizers and/or oils, they hold on to the skin better and tend to last longer on the skin. Some women use crème blush as a 'base,' then brush a light coat of matching powder blush over it for an all-day or all-night glow.

Now if you are considering Liquid or Gel blushers then remember liquid or gel blushers are amazingly lasting. That is they can stay on you for a very long time and they have a good staying capacity. Many of then are oil-free which make them a much more suitable choice than a crème blush, for those of you with oily skin. Some are water-resistant, too.

Practice makes a woman perfect and this is particularly true when it comes to applying blusher. So begin with a little amount on your fingertips or a sponge and build-up color gradually for best results.

Then you can also consider Cheek Pencils and go for them. Remember cheek pencils are absolutely terrific for beginners because you can have a great deal of control over these cheek pencils while you apply them on yourself. However people with oily skin beware and be on alert. These cheek pencils are often formulated with extra moisturizers and emollients to keep them supple and blend able. So look out for oil-free formulas and buy them if you have an oily skin to take care of. Stroke on and use your fingers to blend to a sheer hint of color.
powder Blush

Finally you can also go for Bronzers. There are liquid, powder, gel or crème blushers yes but instead of these for a rosy glow, another option is the bronzer for the sun-kissed look. Bronzers are best for faking or enhancing the tanned, golden glow of a week in a beach. Like liquid blush, bronzers take a little practice but they are worth it!

Use and apply blush makeup as per instructions. Use colors on your face sparingly. Keep practicing until and unless you get the hang of it. Bronzer has especially pleasing effect on medium and deep-toned complexions. Fair-skinned people should go only the lightest shades, even if you have a tan, then mix with the lightest hint of color.

Also you can consider tinted moisturizers. The tinted moisturizers give you another alternative for full-face glowing. Tinted moisturizers are a good 2-in-1 choice for weekends, active sports, vacations and other times when you want just a little color along with the added bonus of moisture protection, too. Since normally there is more moisturizer than color in these formulas, normal to oily skin should pick an oil-free formula and use in little quantities to avoid an overly shiny look.

How to choose your colors -- Glow hot or stay cool?


How To Your ColourContrary to popular belief, whatever your skins tone maybe, fair, medium, or deep, you can blush in almost any color. However do keep in mind that it's the depth or intensity of color that can work wonders on you or ruin your look. If the color is too deep or intense, it can look garish, gaudy and tasteless on light skins. If it's too faint, the color can fade away quickly and easily from medium to deep-toned skin.
If your skin has a cool cast, your best blush will probably be on the cool-toned side.
A rich rose for example, rather than a hot pink. If your skin has warm golden or olive tones, your best blush probably falls on the warm side, too.

From Cheek to Chic: How to Apply Blush the Peter Lamas Way

As we have already pointed it out that blusher is one of the most difficult of cosmetics to put on. It has to be matched and missed with your skin tone flawlessly so that there won’t be any rough edges. Blush makeup should also make sure that your best features are delicately and in an understated way, made even better. Finding ad selecting the right shade of blusher that suits your skin tone is of great importance. The right shade of blusher will give you a healthy natural looking glow and color to your face. And the incorrect shade or shade that doesn’t suit your skin tone will make you look drained or overdone. We caution you that it is very important for you to know your most excellent facial features. You can use your blush to put emphasis on your beautiful cheekbones or a high forehead or a perfect chin and apply your blusher to subtly define and accentuate them.

Look at the greater picture: try to complement and use a blusher that matches with your lipstick color as well as your clothes at all the times and instances.

Cheek color should be always put on only after you apply the foundation or on clean, bare skin, if your skin looks sine and is flawless enough to go without foundation. Be sure to apply a light layer of pressed or loose power on your naked skin first, and then apply the blusher. This will help to prevent the oily areas of your face from making your blusher to look blotchy or streak.

Now we will tell you how to apply your Formula perfectly. In general these are tips to apply blusher to get a certain look and to make your face look like you want it to look:

To get a sculpted, sophisticated look you have to at the very beginning, locate your cheekbones by sucking in your cheeks. Feel along the edge of the cheekbone. This is where you'll have to put on the cheek color.
Blush On CheekboneNever put on color on top of the cheekbone area. It will get in the way with the eye area and actually make the skin under the eyes look swollen and bloated. If you apply the blusher in a proper fashion, you have to make sure that the end product of your blush makeup should be to make cheekbones more outstanding to look at. And perk up your other features as well.

For a soft, gentle and mellow glow all you have to do is smile to expose and show the "apples" of your cheeks. You will notice that they're right in the center of your face. Put on color horizontally or in side ways, sweeping over this "apple" area and mix it up lightly and mix it with your natural skin tone. As in every other instance, keep your blush color at least one and one-half inches at a distance from the nose and never brush color near the eyes.

Using Your Favorite Formula:

If you are using Powder blusher then make sure that you put your money to get yourself a professional quality, full-bristled brush designed specifically for powder blush application. Read our tips on how to choose high quality brushes.

When you apply powder blush, don't put too much of color on the brush from the blusher. Extra color will only make you look very rough and brighter than a Christmas tree. Stroke the brush softly across the powder blush pan and pat gently on the blusher container to remove all extra color. This way you will save the blusher from being wasted as well!  
Apply Powder Blush

Sweep on the brush along the periphery of the cheekbones, in an upward or vertical motion, towards temples, without going very near to the hairline. Add a touch of color on the chin and another, across the brow, brushing in a horizontal or side ways course, to achieve a sense of steadiness and poised look on your entire face.

Incase you are using a crème blush you should use your fingers, place three to four small dots on cheekbones and merge it towards the temples until and unless the color blends evenly and smoothly with your natural complexion. Apply another dot on chin and blend it well with your skin tone to get evenness in the color on your face.

Just incase your Liquid or Gel blusher you can press out color and apply a pat on a dot of color on your fingertip. Blend on cheekbones, working towards the temples. Reapply if needed to intensify color. Add a dot on chin and blend, to balance.

If you are using a Crayon blusher that is a cheek pencil then make two to three light pencil strokes on the cheekbones and merge it evenly towards temples. Apply a little blusher color on the chin and blend evenly to get a sense of equilibrium in your makeup.

There are some Do's and Don'ts for the correct application of blusher. Read it and follow these rules on what you should do and what you shouldn’t when you are applying blush makeup to get the perfect blush!

DO - Apply blush in several coats, building up the color on your cheeks gradually.

DO – get yourself a large blush (preferably the area of the bristles should be of exactly the same size of your areas of your cheeks). So do find for yourself a brush designed specially for applying blusher.

DO - Wash powder blush brushes regularly, as often as you can with soap and water. Air-dry it naturally after you wash. This will keep the bristles fresh.

DO - Wash your hands thoroughly before and after you blend in crème, liquid or gel blusher to prevent transmitting bacteria to your skin. And to prevent from staining fingers and clothes.

DO - Look at yourself that is look at your face in a well lit mirror from all possible angles after applying blush makeup. This is important so that you can check and ensure accurately that every edge is absolutely blended and the color has merged with your skin tone.
Applying Blusher

DON'T - Blend the blusher inwards towards your nose or downwards below your cheekbone area. Always blend in an upward motion, out towards the edges of your face.

DON'T – put on too much color and take extra color on your brush. This will lead to a point where you will commit the mistake of applying just a bit too much color in while trying to apply blusher. You will only have to take out most of it with a makeup sponge or tissue, to achieve the natural look that you truly desire.

DON'T - Rub your skin with a lot of force when you blend your blusher. Remember that ideally you should at all circumstances blend the blusher with your skin very softly and tenderly with the pads of the fingers or fingertips or a soft makeup sponge.

DON'T - Clash with the other colors that you are wearing (whether that is your natural skin tone, hair color or the color of the eye shadow, lipstick or the clothes that you are wearing). Select a blush color that complements your complexion and hair color and of course match along with the color of your lipstick and your attire.

Use Blush Makeup to give shape to your face or learn to sculpt your face with Blush makeup:


Blush Make Up For FaceThe color of your blush can do magic on you! It can even improve the contours of your face subtly, hide some flaw like a double chin and give an illusion of a more classic, oval shape and a faultless bone structure. The trick is in applying the blusher properly.

That is, all you have to do is you have to put on the blusher on the right places. This will help to highlight and accentuate your best facial features while you can use blusher to hide and reduce your less desirable ones.
In an ideal situation, your cheek color should begin from a spot no lower than the bottom of the nose and no farther in than the middle of the face. If you apply it too close to the eye it can make your eyes look swollen and bloated.

Blush color should be applied and stroked in a slight angle upward toward the top of the ears and be very smoothly and nicely mixed with your skin tone until edges fade away totally. See to it that you don’t let color reach up to the hairline. Remember the goal is to look naturally glowing and not artificial and garish.

Now that you know the fundamental rules of blush makeup, let's now learn how to play around with these core rules and tricks of blush makeup to work with your needs.

If you have a long and narrow face then for such a facial shape you need to use blush makeup for more width and to make our face look broader, keep the color low. Don’t apply blusher any higher than the lower ledge of cheekbone. Make sure to keep the blusher angle horizontal-level with the central-point (not on the above) of the ear. Put on color only on the on the outside of the one third of your cheeks (cheek color in the centre of the face will give emphasis to the length of your face).
Blush For Different Face

If you have a Round, Wide, or Square Face then the blush makeup should help you to add some length to your face. So for this purpose keep your blush color in the centre of the face (without getting very near to the nose. Cheek color on the outer third of your cheeks will only give emphasis to the roundness of your face).

Incase you have Sky-High Cheekbones then you should Brush a beige contour color gently, just below your cheekbone towards the temples and mix it and merge with your skin tone smoothly and softly, to get a "hollow" look in the cheek area. After that, you can put on the cheek color of your choice or your most preferred blusher on the ledge of the cheekbone and angle it towards hairline, as we have just mentioned above. Blend the edges of both the colors very cautiously. Together, they will bring out and put emphasis to the height of your cheekbone spectacularly!

To get a stunning and striking highlight, apply a dot of white eye shadow powder right on top of the cheekbone, and apply it on top of your blush. Place it precisely right where light normally reflects on the bone most dazzlingly, to give prominence to the arch.

If you want to erase a double chin that is to hide those ugly double chins simply dip your brush in a natural colored blush like a beige-toned blush. Sweep the blusher couple of times (two to three times), under the chin. This plays down any surplus under the jaw line. However we warn you do not forget to blend thoroughly!

If you use the blusher in the correct way it can change the shape of your face by hiding some less desirable features and highlighting the more beautiful features. You can use blush makeup to make your face look longer, wider or as you like it to look whatever shape you want to give it.
Blush For Your Skin Type

First of all, find a color that goes with the natural color of your cheeks when they have the flushed look that comes naturally after a session of exercise or activity. If you still can’t understand what color that is, then slap or pinch yourself on the cheek and choose that color that comes into view. The general color rule goes something like this: fair skin matches with rose, olive with peach and dark skin with apricot.

After you find out and discover the correct color that complements you the most and suits your natural complexion and hair color the most. You have to then find out and select the right formula or blush type for your skin type. For oily and combination skin, powder is the best formula and cream formula is most suitable for dry skin. Liquid and gel blushers are most suitable for oily skin. Now, combine cream and powder and you will find your blush will remain for a much longer duration and will also give you a wonderful and natural looking luster.

Now it is time for you to put on the foundation, wear your eye color and apply lipstick. Although blush is the last but one step in your makeup routine you have to do and be through before applying powder, it is also very important and vital to your entire look that you test and try out what are the best color, formula and method for you.

When it comes to blush makeup then we remind you yet again that please pick up blush color with a good blush brush but pat of any extra color in the container itself. This will help to avoid wastage of your favorite blusher. It will also help to prevent you from applying too much blush on your face as a result of which you will look garish and overdone. After that simply smile into a well lit and clear mirror and make out where the apple of your cheek is.

Make sure that you apply the blusher in such a way that the shade of your blush is soft and have merged well and evenly with your natural skin tone. Remember it will also help in your blush makeup if you dab it on with your middle finger. Then mix it evenly and smoothly and make it blend with your natural skin tone with your ring and middle fingers. Professional makeup artists say that the cleaner finger picks up any and every extra blush.
After putting on the blusher if you feel that you have used extra powder blush, then to hide it away or camouflage it with use a little translucent powder. Incase you have used cream blush, rub it off with a tissue or a soft sponge. Keep in mind that gel and liquid blush ‘stain’ the cheeks, so make it less intense and make it softer by washing your face. After this you can then moisturize your face and redo your makeup, but make sure to use very little makeup this time.

Now, add a coat of clear powder.

Yellow Based Blush

Here we bring you a small yet immensely useful tip for you: touch lightly with a little bronzer powder on your forehead, chin and nose before you put on blush. This will give you a sun-kissed glow and luster. You should make use of a big brush and a very light hand to ensure it doesn’t come through like a stripe or a band of color. If you have a dark skin tone, try a caramel-color bronzer along with a yellow-based blush.

If applied in an appropriate way then blusher have the potentials to modify and transform the way you look and your appearance absolutely and wholly. Try on blush makeup following our blush tips and advices and you will for sure turn out to be a traffic-stopper beauty!

To keep building on your knowledge keep reading beauty magazines and surf through the websites to know about the latest trend in blush makeup. You will surely keep learning more and more amazing latest tips and the global trends in blush makeup.

Quite a number of us till date apply blush on the basis of our face structures and the shape of our face, you know, if your face is long, do this, or if you have a short face, do that. That is the application of blush is being restricted with only one technique. Or being stuck to the feeling like you have to 'correct' your face or make it proper, is certainly not the right way to put on blush makeup! Instead you should apply your blush based on what feature or features you want to highlight, and this is the correct way to apply blush makeup.

Blush can do great tricks on you and spread its magic on you but you have to realize how far you can go with it so this is a fair reminder to guide you on the right methods of applying blusher:

Blush makeup should not be applied under the bottom of the nose as this will make you look cold.

Blush makeup should not pass the center of the cheeks and go towards your nose if it does then you will end up looking sunburned.

Blush makeup should not go beyond the arch of the eyebrow when going around your temple or else it will make you look dirty.

If applied beyond these three guidelines that we just mentioned, blush will just end up looking horrible.

Here are some tricks professionals apply on models to shoot them and make them look is a particular way using blush makeup for the purpose of photography to help call attention to and highlight the model’s features:
Bone Structure Blusher

Firstly to emphasize bone structure generally blusher is applied or blusher is applied to define and outline below the cheekbone. You maybe wondering where exactly is this “underneath the cheekbone”. In that case try the 'two finger' method. With your first two fingers, forefinger and index finger trace with your forefinger above your ear. The index finger should be under your ear (if you cross your hand across your face, it'll be simpler!). Make sure the bottom finger is lined horizontally across the face. By applying your contour between the two fingers, you'll always get it underneath the cheekbones.

If you desire stronger cheekbones, then after sweeping some blusher underneath the cheekbone, sweep on some more color just in the temple. Keep the top of the cheekbone blush-free. This will create a false impression of deepness. Thus blusher accentuates and then adds a look of depth which will make the cheekbone appear stronger.

So how do you create the illusion? Simply put on some blusher below the cheekbones, this will make your face seem to look wider, and you make a look so that more attention is drawn to your hair. You're actually drawing a line that leads the eye directly to your hairstyle. This method of applying blush is simply amazing for accentuating your features for an evening look, or even for a bridal look.

This also works when you put on blush on the apples of the cheeks and then apply the color strongly back towards the ear. You'll still get the same 'optical illusion' line effect. Just note, you'll also be calling attention to your nose. (The line goes both the ways!)

2. To make your skin look as flawless as you can and to accentuate your lipstick simply smile! And apply blusher on to the apples of your cheeks. Blend back, but don't go any further than the outside corner of the eye, or the actual apple of the cheek. Simply by keeping the blusher on the front of the cheeks, you give the illusion of flawless and unblemished skin, and you will also draw attention to your eyes and accentuate them.
Looking Eyes Stunning

3. To make your eyes look stunning and stand out notice that every fashion magazine editor will try to tell you that if they can get you to "look" at a cover at the model's eyes, you'll pretty much purchase those cosmetics. Have you ever thought why this is so? Well simply because in our world eye contact is a very vital weapon and powerful tool. And women can really make magic with eye contact! 

Here's a great optical illusion. Start wearing your blush starting near the outside corner of the eye, then go up to the temple, and then up on the forehead, as far as the arch of the eyebrow. You're almost drawing a letter "C" around your eye. What this does is, it gives the illusion of a half circle. What our eye tries to do is complete the circle by continuing around your eye to be exact. You create a stronger focus on the eye, and thus enjoy more eye contact. It will really work its magic for you!

Remember when Indian Earth was in? A warm brick eye shadow is also the perfect all over color for eyes cheeks, lips. Just add a little lip gloss on top for lips and you're off.

Find a blush brush that perfectly fits the size of the apple of your cheek when you smile. If you use anything bigger than that, you'll get blush where you don't want it to be. You really don't need a huge blush brush for color. Those are meant for shimmer powders.
Lightly Tapping The Blush

Pick up your blush by lightly tapping the blush with the tips of the bristles. If you are sweeping the brush across the color, you'll pick up about 10 x more color than you need, and you waste a lot of product. Just tap the ends of the bristles about 2-3 times onto the color. Shake off any excess. You should barely be able to see the color on the brush. Don't worry, you do have enough on.

When applying blush, don't "sweep" or "stroke" the color across the cheeks. You'll usually end up streaking the color on, and then having to go back to 'correct' and 'blend'. Instead, smile, and tap on gently going across your cheeks. By tapping the color onto the brush, and then tapping in onto the cheeks........ you'll avoid excess color, streaking and more. Tapping on blends the color for you and you can always add more if you want.

Color too bright? Swipe your blush brush across a Kleenex to clean off any excess, and then pick up some loose powder. Sweep over and blend your blush into your skin. You'll get a softer, more 'real' look to your blush.

OOPS. Okay, you look like a clown, wrong color, too much........now what? Easy! With a clean dry sponge, pick up a light layer of loose powder and 'erase' as much off as possible. Too bright or too dark? Take a slightly dampened sponge and clean off as much as you can. The water will pick up and 'dilute' the color.........it just may be enough to fix it and look ok.

Blush Types

Blush adds warmth and color to the face and is mostly applied mainly to cheeks. Most of the women desire to look naturally beautiful glowing with a warm tinge to your face to make them look soft and blushing and blush is used for exactly that particular purpose. Blushers can be in variety of hues, tones and consistencies. They come as powder, cream, liquid or gels and each of them have specific purposes and suit different situations. Powder blush is easier to apply than liquid and cream blush. The latter should always be used before powder. Blush can easily be applied by sweeping it downward from the ear to mid-cheek. Mostly, it is applied from top of the ear and ends at the end of the apple of the cheek. Best colors for blush are the ones that are close to skin tone and sheer use of blush is often the best.
Look Of Blush On Face

It is important to test the look of blush on your face with full makeup to see that it gives you a balanced look or not. Blush darker than natural blushing colors of the cheek often needs to be toned down, especially at daytime, which can be done by dusting some translucent powder over the blush. Evening makeup can take on a little more of the blush though depending on the desired look of the wearer. Blush can instantly brighten and freshen a dull face and helps you to underplay the tired look of the face. However, if it misused and used heavily, it can leave you looking like a makeup box! The tip to find your natural blush color is to bend down and touch your toes for two minutes and then stand back up. The color of cheeks is the right blush color for you. Another way to choose the right blush color is to match it with the lip color you are wearing. Reds and pinks are for winters while peaches, beiges and warm hues are better for summers.

For combination and oily skin, powder blush works well. Oily skin can also use liquid and gel blush on but cream blush is best for dry skin. Staining blushers are for well-moisturized skin only and need to blend into skin quickly as they dry very quickly. For a healthy suntan, put a little bronzer powder on forehead, chin and nose. An eye shadow, which is too red, pink or rosy for your taste can be used as blush and some of it can be mixed with Vaseline, lip-gloss or lip balm for a matching lip color. A dark or bight cream blush can be diluted instantly by mixing it with a little concealer on your palm. Brown blush is great for toning down the color of blush ad can also be used as contour, eye shadow or bronzer. It can also be mixed with powder for sheer blushed look.

While applying blush remember that blush is over and over again the last part of makeup that you apply on the face while doing your routine makeup. The process of putting on blush differs with the facial shape and the right application of blusher can make your face look longer or wider, as desired. Here are some tips to use while applying blush:

A little shimmer on the uppermost spot of cheekbone near eyes lends you an instant sexy look.

Put the accent on the cheekbones by using a somewhat darker shade there while blending it down the cheek for a more natural look.

Clean blush brushes are very important to avoid bacteria transfer in skin and thus, one should clean them with non-soapy cleansers and baby wipes.
Cream Blush

Cream blush can be blotted off using a tissue while applying translucent powder can dilute powder blush. However, gel and liquid blush have to be washed from face and the makeup has to be redone.

Cream blush can be used on lips for sheer and soft color and should be applied using the fingertip.

Dusky pink blush warms and freshens up the face, especially on the tendons below the ears, but blush on chin may not look good, if your neck is lighter than your face.

Frosted blush may not be a good idea after all and frost on lips or eyes are more in fashion during night parties. Still, you can get that look by applying a light colored frosted eye shadow or lipstick such as gold, silver, light pink, peach, champagne and beige on the top of the cheekbones. Frosted highlighting powder is also available in the market to be used on any part of your face.

Gels and liquids are best to get rosy cheeks but since they stain the skin be sure to wash your hands after applying them.

Gels are dabbed as dot on apple of the cheek and two smaller dots on cheekbone and rubbed in small circles to blend them well all the way from cheeks to hairline.

Make the face look wider, by looking straight into the mirror and applying blusher on the cheekbone from under the center of the eye to the temple. Suck in cheeks and use the darkest shade in the hollow making a 'C' shape up to the temples but not higher than eyebrows. Use lighter shade on top of cheekbones and stop before the under eye area. You can add a little lush on tip of the nose, forehead and chin.

Never use blush on underside of cheekbones.

Often the small blush brush that comes with the cosmetic is of no use. A full round brush gives a professional look and make the overall look softer and more desirable. It is important to have separate brushes for the blush and the powder.
Blush On Cheeks

Powder blush should always be put on in one direction to avoid streaking.
The best technique to put on a blusher is to pick up the blush on the brush and tap off any additional color in the container itself. As an alternative, if you are using a gel or a cream blush, put a bit of it on your fingers tips and apply.
The most excellent colors for blusher are warm, golden browns than cool, grayish browns, in particular when you use these colors to outline the cheek.

To understand and locate the actual position of the apple of your cheek, look into the mirror and smile and then sweep the brush upwards in an arc from your cheekbone to your hairline. Color should be light and well blended.

To make the face look longer, the center of attention your blush should be on the outer area of the face and near your hairline. Suck in cheeks and use the darkest color in the hollow making a 'C' shape, no higher than eye on side of face.

Use softer blush colors on top of the cheekbones and underneath use your darkest blush colors to help the face look slender. Apply softer colors on the apple of the cheeks and chin.
