Applying blush is a key part of a makeup because it is what brings the entire look together. The basic objective of applying blush is to give a rosy touch to the cheeks and the most important to keep in mind is that it must look natural. Apart from it, there are certain other tips such as the ones listed below, that will accompany applying blush.

 

1. Good lighting is a must

Blush is not something that you want to make look contrasting and in fact it should be the opposite of it. In order to do this well, you have to make sure that you are in a well lit area. Natural sunlight is the best and if not, make the best out of artificial lighting to see your blush coloring clearly.

2. Powder or cream?

Powder blush can give you a pastel look while the cream can bring out a blended look. So it is basically decided on the event you are going, the time of the day or even your mood. No matter what, pick the one that you feel most comfortable with.

3. Bronzer and highlighter

Bronzer complements blush perfectly and to enhance the look, a highlighter can be used. Make sure to dust the bronzer from your hairline to cheeks and the highlighter can go from eyebrow underneath, brow bone and above the lips.

4. Peach or pink?

If you want to stand out of the crowd, go for pink blush that will add some delicacy to your face. On the other hand, if you are trying to blend into the crowd, yet want to shake off the dull look from your face, try the peach one.
