What woman does without blush when applying makeup?? Most likely, only a young girl who is completely confident in her natural beauty. In all other cases, blush is necessary for women of all statuses and ages – it is this makeup tool that ideally rejuvenates a woman’s face and, if necessary, models it. But to achieve this result, blush must be applied correctly, so let’s take a closer look at the technique of applying blush on the face.
First, you should remember that you need to choose dry blush for evening makeup, and bold blush for creating a daytime look. Blush should be applied with a special cosmetic brush, which can be easily purchased at any store selling cosmetics. Carefully apply blush in the direction from the temples to the cheeks, trying not to make sharp transitions.
If you suddenly applied too much blush, do not be discouraged – take a dry brush and blend them. Don’t make the mistake of many women and keep blush out of your hairline.
Of course, you should choose the color of blush very carefully. If your complexion is naturally not too bright, then too bright blush on such a face will naturally look unnatural. And vice versa – on a swarthy or tanned face, pale blush will be practically invisible. When choosing a blush color, remember that, according to makeup artists, only beige-pink blush suits many women well. Therefore, if you are afraid to make a mistake, give preference to such shades. Fair-haired and fair-skinned ladies are best suited with blush of cool pinkish tones, and coral and apricot blush will perfectly refresh the face of brown-eyed and dark-haired women.
Equally important is your ability to choose the consistency of blush – this largely determines how natural they will look on the face. Remember that it should not differ from the consistency of your foundation. So, if you use powder in makeup, then your blush must certainly be dry. And in the case when you prefer to use foundation instead of powder, the blush in your cosmetic bag should be cream or gel. The composition of such blush includes a certain amount of fatty components, which allows them to perfectly and easily lay down on foundation. If you try to apply dry blush on it, then most likely they will lie on the skin in the form of an uneven and ugly spot, which is unacceptable in high-quality makeup. But on a powdered face, applying dry blush will not be difficult – it will lie flat and beautiful.
The following trick will help you evenly apply cream blush on your skin – first apply a few drops of blush, and then gently rub them with your fingers – in this case, you do not need to use a brush. As professional makeup artists say, when applying cream blush with your fingers, they are distributed on the skin without any problems.
Look at your face – if its shape is almost perfect, then most likely you won’t have a question about where exactly you need to apply blush. But if, unfortunately, you are unlucky, then try to correct the shape of your face with blush. So, with a long, elongated type of face, blush applied to the most protruding places on the face will help you visually make it rounder. If, on the contrary, the face is round above, then you should apply blush on sunken areas of the face to make it at least a little visually longer. Horizontally applied blush will visually expand your face a little, and blush applied obliquely will make your face visually narrower.
