Using blush is one of the best ways to enhance your cheekbones, which are pretty hard to miss; meaning it must be done right as it’s an area everyone will see. When it comes to the cheeks, then these only fulfil their purpose when they are covered in a lovely tone of blush. However, when it comes to blush, then the choice is numerous, which if not chosen appropriately can spoil the whole look. It doesn’t just stop here, oh no! After that it’s applying the blush, which if done wrong also spoils the look; so it’s important it is applied correctly. A lovely blush to use is the Blush Luminous Cheek Color by Dolce & Gabbana; color peach 20 – peachy pink is highly recommending! Depending on what kind of look you’re after you may want to go for a highlighter effect using blush or an outline effect OR both.
Once you have decided the color and the look you wish to have, it’s time to get blushing. Or should I say brushing! A top tip here would be to try the ILLAMASQUA Blusher Brush 1, which is available in most beauty shops and truly works like a charm! One of the first things you need to do is suck in your cheeks; almost like a fish expression. Doing this will help find and identify the exact area where you need to apply the blush color, which means it can’t go wrong! Once you can see a hollow area; this is where you apply the deeper color. This can include light brown, a deeper foundation color or even a bronzer. This can be done using a brush or sponge; whichever you find easy.
Once this is done, you can let go of the expression and alter it into a smile. Now you will be able to clearly see what we refer to as the ‘apple’ of your cheek. This is the area that deserves to glow as when you naturally blush; it’s here the rosiness starts to emerge. You can now start applying blush on the apple of your cheek and blend this into the darker color. In order to attain a full professional look it is important you thoroughly blend and that’s it! A light dust of blush can be applied to your chin, forehead and chin; it’s not important, but looks lovely. However, just be sure not to overdo it as a light touch will do just fine.
