I have seen women looking absolutely glowing by using blush, while others look like they’re hoping to get jobs as circus clowns. Blush can be your best beauty tool or your worst enemy. It all comes down to application. If you see lines or streaks of color on your face, you’ve got too much on or you have not blended.

Smile, and then apply blush to the apples of the cheeks. This looks more natural than running a big stripe up the side of the face. Blush is not intended to be used as a contour.

Another way to find exactly where to place blush is to turn your head upside down for a few seconds. When your head comes up, you’ll see exactly where your blush should go.

To create the illusion of higher cheekbones, use a facial powder four shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it under the bone. Cream blush should be applied before powder.

Using bronzing powder as a blush will create a natural, healthy look.

Coordinate cheek color with your lipstick, but don’t go too far from the natural flush of your skin color.

Never apply powder blush to a freshly washed face. It will look blotchy.

Blush should never extend farther than the pupil or lower than the tip of the nose. Sweeping blush all over can appear fake and aging.

For an all-over, natural-looking glow, dip a powder brush in blush, then in face powder. Brush over entire face, concentrating on forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.

Blush can give your eyes a lovely glow. You can use any color except the brightest pink. Use a small brush all over the eyelid.
