How to Apply Blush - Applying Blush Tips


Blush sticks and creams are tricky to use and can look heavy and overstated. Liquid and gel blushes can be even trickier as compared to creams.

Gels usually dry before blending is complete while liquids take forever to dry and smudge easily. Some gels are also drying to the skin, while some liquids add more oil to formerly oily skin, so neither product will work for everyone.

Women with normal to dry skin may find that creams work well for them, while women with oily skin will refer a blush stick.

Blush is available in powders, creams, liquids, and gels. People with oily or problem skin are better off with a powder blush as it offers better coverage and a matte finish.

Type of blusher you use will be dependent on two things; which product is easiest for you to apply, and your personal skin type.

Use blush to the apples of your cheeks, sweep along the cheekbone to the hairline. Gels often dry before blending is complete while liquids take forever to dry and defile easily.

Apply blush to cheeks, forehead, chin and tip of your nose, (lightly) to create a "sun kissed" appereance. Apply your blush shade as a lip color. Use a light hand when applying. Deep colored blushes are too severe for anyone with fair skin.

Dusty pink blush in counterpoint will warm tired looking skin and works well for older women.
