Three Essential Make Up Tips: Blusher

Blusher is the make up product that allows you to recreate a healthy, natural glow all-year round, and is the perfect finishing touch to any well made up face. Here, we give three helpful hints that will allow you to create a perfectly well done face using blusher:

Tip One: Smile and Apply

Knowing where to apply blusher on the face is an essential, and incorrectly applied blusher is one of the most common mistakes. This is all the more surprising when one considers that getting it right is so very easy. To apply blusher correctly, smile as hard as you can so your cheeks inflate over your skin. You should apply blusher on these extended ‘apples’ of your cheeks, and literally nowhere else. Apply in a circular motion using a large round brush, and when you relax your face from its extreme smile, the blusher will be perfectly placed.

Tip Two: Be Subtle

One of the worst make up sins is when women use too much blusher, giving themselves the impression of being constantly flushed. When applying blusher, it’s important to use the product sparingly; a light dusting of powder, applied as directed in Tip One, is all you need to create a natural, rosy glow.

Tip Three: Colour Match

A bright red blusher is flattering on absolutely no one, so try and choose a more subtle shade with pink overtones. When buying blusher, keep in mind the colour of your skin; as a general rule, the darker your skin is, the darker your blusher can be. If you are very pale, a simple light pink is all you – anything more will look overdone.

    To be honest, I have so much trouble applying blush because i’m so afraid of overdoing it!
    I always feel like I applied more on one cheek compared to the other… I keep it for the end of my makeup application. I always use natural sun light to apply my blush because I can see better than with my artificial mirror light!

    I agree! Blush is probably the hardest part of makeup for me to get right! Because I am very pale/fair skinned I usually end up looking like a clown, even when I don’t put much on! I have always heard to do the round strokes or upwards strokes, but never to stroke downwards towards your nose/mouth.

    I like the tip about smiling when you put on blush. I have often struggled with where exactly to put it, so now I know for next time.. I agree with going light on the blush to not look so flushed.

    Good tips on putting on blush. I agree so much with the part about the fact that blusher can be the most difficlut makeup item to apply. It has to be applied to just the right area and too much can be too over powering. The color is also important and can make a difference as well. It got to the point where this was a makeup item I didn’t use too often because it was so tricky.

    Terrific article. I often inadvertently apply too much blusher. The application must be applied correctly otherwise it is either too low or too high. It is pointless buying an expensive blusher if applied incorrectly. I tend to find applying a small amount of blusher is best.
