Makeup Tip of the Week – blush

Today’s make-up tip is “where to apply your blush”. If you’ve been reading my blog, you must’ve seen my tutorial on where you can apply your blush, bronzer and highlighter. If you’re a new reader, you can look it up by typing “blush” on the search bar right beside this post.

Apply your blush across your cheekbones, instead of on the apples of the cheeks. This way you can have a more natural looking blush. You can definitely apply your blush on the apples of the cheeks, but it might cause your face to look older, and “chubbier”.

If you’ve a round face, this is the best way to “slim” down your cheeks instead of contouring. Some of you who are an expert an contouring, you can most definitely contour your face, but those of you who are not, try using this technique the next time you apply your blush.

Your blush should be 2 fingers away from your lower lashline, and it should stop about 2 fingers away from your nose (or even 2 1/2 fingers if you think your cheeks are too prominent). Start from the hairline and go back and forth (for powder blush). Afterwards, blend your blush with your fingers.

For cream blush, it’s the same, but apply it with your fingers, dab and spread the colors across the cheekbones.


here’s my lovely friend, Amy who kindly show us where you can apply your blush. The oval in the pic is smaller than what I mentioned, but it gives you a rough idea where you should start the blush.
