Blush can be a game changer for that classy yet oomph factor for makeup. A few right moves can completely change your look. Not only do you get a fresh color, which we all long for after a long winter and lockdown, but you also shape your face beautifully. All you have to do is choose the right shade and be able to handle the blush.
The peach shade can fit your friend perfectly, not you. That’s just the way it is. It is therefore important to find exactly the tone that will perfectly match your skin. If you have very light skin, soft light pink or very light violet tones are ideal for you. Peach shades look suitable for medium-dark skin, and fresh pink for a golden face. And for dark skin, more pronounced colors such as coral are created.
There are a total of three types of blush – powder, cream and liquid. But which will suit you? If you have oily skin, liquid blushes will fit you perfectly, which you can spread with your fingers or a brush until lost. Your cheeks will shine juicy all day. Cream blushes are ideal for combination and normal skin, and classic powders for dry skin.
The brush also plays a big role in the final result . Without the right tool, your makeup will never be flawless. The ideal brush is chamfered and has thick but very soft bristles made of natural materials. Before each make-up, lightly tap the brush to get rid of excess paint and really apply only as much as needed.
How to cheek?
If you have already found the right one, that is made for you, and you have the right brush for it, all you need to do is know exactly where to apply it. Don’t worry, it’s not a science. Just remember
that it is meant to highlight your features!
Heart-shaped face : Apply it with the tip of the brush from the cheekbones up to the temples until lost.
Square face : Apply it with the flat side of the brush from the cheekbones to the ears until lost.
Round face : Smile and apply it only on the so-called apples, that is on the most protruding part.
Oval face : Apply it with the flat side of the brush from the cheekbones to just below the temples. Then apply a little rose with the tip of the brush on the temples themselves.
