blush 101

Verb. redden-flush-colour-color
Noun. flush-redness-glow

When women think about blush, they often assume bright pink or red. Which could be scary at first but if applied correctly, could be very complementing to the face. Blush could be intensified for a bold look, or sheered for a natural flush. You could use different shades of colors related to the affect of flushing of the cheeks, not just pinks or reds. Blush is suppose to give color back to the skin along with contour and bronzing.

With blush and contouring, its good to know the build or structure of your face. Target is to apply on top contour. To get a contour in the right place is to look for the hollows of your cheeks. Blush would be placed at the apple of your cheeks which is when your cheeks rise when you smile. If applied just right, could look very classic.

Accurate blush application for face shape

Women get scared of blush because they assume it would be too much but in essences when picking the right colors, could really pull together the look your trying to achieve. When picking blush colors, you would want to look for a color that would be very flattering to your skin tone.
