It's not just about your cheekbones.
Which blush is right for your skin tone?
What blush formula should I use?
How your skin interacts with the texture of your blush is just as important as the shade itself. For example, oily skin types benefit more from blushes because they adhere to the skin and last after sweating and excess oil. On dry skin, on the other hand, a shade can make dryness worse if it fades. In this case, it's best to stick to your weapon - powder blush. Cream blushes, on the other hand, are easy to apply to most skin types and stay put.
Different ways to use blush
When wearing a blush, it's important to know that its purpose is to enhance your face. Generally, blush is recommended for the cheekbones, but there are other techniques you can use to enhance your features.
Looking for a dramatic effect? Try a draped blush.
If you think that you really want to try something different during the day, you can hide your blush. Use a soft, fluffy brush to apply blush to your temples and then to your cheekbones to line your face. You can also apply blush from the cheekbones to the hairline, then sweep it across the forehead for dramatic color.
Want sun-kissed skin? Try applying blush to the bridge of your nose.
Apply a natural blush to your cheeks and the bridge of your nose, where your sunglasses are. For an even sunnier look, also apply blush to your forehead and chin, as these are the areas where the sun naturally hits first. You can then apply a powder blush, which is very long-lasting.
Want to add some shape to your look? Try applying blush along your cheekbones.
It's perfectly possible to define your face without shaping it. How do you do it? Apply blush strategically! Apply blush in small circles directly to the cheekbones and blend towards the outer corners of the eyes, near the hairline, and then up the cheekbones - remembering where the highlighter is. This is an easy way to enhance your look and smooth out your bone structure. You can also apply a little blush to the tip of your nose for a more youthful look if you want to make your skincare mini-fridge Madison beer look chic.
