When applied correctly, blush can do wonders to your look, it could give you an amazing glow and even make you look younger and fresh! However, many of us girls, don’t really know what is the best way to wear blush, and here i’m sharing the biggest mistakes, and how to avoid them.
1- Wrong amount: Use too much blush and you’ll look as if you belong in the circus! Instead, remember the original intent of blush — to give you a face life, and a beautiful glow. The goal should be to look naturally and gently flushed, not painted.
2- Wrong color: The wrong blush color can make your complexion muddy. Choose the right one and your skin will instantly look brighter. If you have fair, rosy skin, choose cool, blue-toned pinks. You can even get away with slightly frosted pink blush. If you have olive skin with golden undertones, skip the cool pinks, which will look gray or muddy on your skin. Stick to warm honey or peach tones to complement your coloring. If your skin is darker, choose richer, deeper wines and burgundies.
3- Wrong placement: Don’t use blush under your cheekbones to contour. Instead, put it on the apples of your cheeks. To find your apples, smile big; they’re the rounded part of your cheeks that lift when you smile. If you don’t have much in the cheekbone department, you can place the blush a bit higher, along the line of the cheekbones.
Here’s some awesome diagrams I found online on where to apply blush according to your face shape.
