Now ladies the blusher is important as any other makeup product or step of application
Don't leave it out because your makeup will look incomplete
Here are some practical tips for you about the blushers.
Where to apply it and how?
Right on the cheekbones!
Don't go on the top of the cheekbones with blusher!
Under your cheekbones will be your contour so again no...keep it exactly on the cheekbones.
The right blush can add a pop of color to your cheeks, instantly making you look younger, healthier and prettier. However, many women are unsure about the right type of blush to use and how exactly they should apply it. Choose a suitable color for your skin tone. When choosing a blush colour, it's important to pick one that matches your natural skin tone.
- This means that the color you pick should be as close as possible to the color your cheeks turn when you're naturally flushed. Picking a color that doesn't match your skin tone can cause your blush to look unnatural and even garish.
- A good tip for identifying your natural coloring is to make a tight fist with your hand for about ten seconds. The color that develops across your knuckles is the ideal color for your blush!
- In general, pale skin tones will work best with light pink which mimics their natural flush. For a more dramatic look, peaches and mochas can work well.
- Sallower skin tones will do best with orange or reddish-pink blushes which brighten the skin, adding a healthy glow.
- Dark skin tones can get away with vivid oranges, pinks and reds which add a pop of life and color.
Decide on a type of blush. There are many different blush formulas on the market, including powder, cream, gel and liquid. The best option for you will depend on your skin type and personal preference.
- Powder blush is good for oily to normal skin. It is also good for warmer temperatures, as it will not slide off the face.
- Cream blush is good for drier skin as it is more hydrating. It also good for older skin, as it will not catch in fine lines and wrinkles like a powder.
- Liquids and gels are great if you want to achieve a very exact and long-lasting application. Often these products can double up as a matching lip stain!
Purchase some applicator brushes/sponges. You don't have to use a brush/sponge if you want you can use your fingers(but a brush would make it neater).Applying your blush will depend on the type of blush you're using:
- Powder blushes are best applied with an angled blush brush or with a wide-headed loose powder brush.
- Cream blushes are best applied with your fingers or with a medium-sized flat-topped brush.
- Liquids and gels are best applied with your fingers or with a synthetic make-up wedge.
