How to choose and apply blush
Rosy blushing cheeks are a sign of youthfulness and freshness. Applying blush in your daily makeup routine is essential. However, if you apply blush incorrectly you may end up looking odd or even clownish if you overdo it.
Here are some basic tips on how to apply blush perfectly
Basically, there are 3 types of blush that differ in their consistency:
Pressed powder blush
Liquid blush/ tint
The main difference between these types is their suitability to different skin types.
Pressed powder blush may cause dryness and is, therefore, less suitable for dry skin. If you suffer from dryness or wrinkles I suggest you try the cream blush, since this type blends well into the skin and usually has a moisturized feel to it. The liquid blush gives a great natural Sunkissed look but usually has less stay power. Furthermore, if you have fine lines or deep wrinkles, better to stay away from sparkly or shiny blushes since the shine will put a spotlight on the lines.
How to choose the right blush shade
Take a good look at your cheeks when you are blushing and this undertone is usually the best natural choice to match your skin tone.
However, if you have a tendency to redden easily, you will not want to accentuate the redness. Therefore, you should stay away from pink and red tones.
Try the peach and coral tones. This will help neutralize the redness. For example:
