How to Apply Blusher

There is no one correct way to apply blusher. The method you use depends on the type of look you want to create.

For a natural healthy glow:

Apply foundation (and if necessary powder) as normal. Smile where your cheek is naturally at its fattest is where blusher needs to go to create a natural look. Apply the blusher in a small circle, blending well. For the best results, try to gel blusher. Now powder over the top.

For sexy cheekbones:

Using powder blusher, sweep color in an art following the line of your cheekbone up from the apple of your cheek to your hairline. Keep color light and blended, you want a wash rather than a stripe of color. Add a little shimmer on the highest point your cheekbone nearest your eye.

For a sun-kissed sheen:

Using a blusher brush containing only a hint of bronze or pinky-brown powder, sweep color along your cheekbone and then up around your hairline across your forehead. Again be careful that it doesn't look like a stripe, just a brush of color. Repeat on the other side so the color joins. If you have been too heavy with the bronze, wipe the blusher brush and then use it to blend. This will soften the color. Another trick that will help reduce the color, should you feel you need it, is adding a little translucent powder over the top. Be careful not to build up too much powder, though, as this will just make your skin look caked with makeup.
