Beauty of Blush

I didnt do this(so don't get it twisted)
Have you realised that blush can be a beauty secret weapon?....It adds abit of freshness and natural beauty to the face when not over used. The tips lies in choosing the right blush color and applying it correctly. So am going to try to help you by giving tips to help avoiding you look like a lets start with:
  • Choose the color picking one as close to your skin tone as possible or you can try and match your lip color.(i don't mean if your are wearing a bold red you use a bold red colored blush
  • Determine your face shape first of all, so as to know the spot you want the blush color placed. You can achieve this by smiling into the mirror to find the apple spot of your cheek.
  • Put the blush on your brush if you are using powder blush tapping out the excesses. If you are using a gel or cream blush, dab abit of it on your fingers.
  • Now apply on that apple of your cheeks.
  • If it applies to have been in excess, do not worry, just apply abit of translucent powder on it and that should calm it down, if its cream blush you use, just dab it with a tissue paper.
