How to apply blush?
Knowing what’s best for your cheeks goes a long way to bring out the radiance in you. There are a few things to consider when applying blush; skin tone, skin type, and face shape, with the last being the most important.
To apply blush, the first thing to do is to get a good blush brush which ideally should be dense yet soft and fluffed outwards (because a compacted one will not spread across a wider surface).
On application, it usually starts from mid-cheek towards the temples. If you’re having a hard time locating the center of your cheeks, just suck in your cheeks.
Finally, always remember to blend the edges outwards after to achieve that natural glow.
