Powder blusher – This should be applied over the top of your foundation and face powder. To apply, dust over the compact with a large soft brush. Tap the handle of the brush on the back of your hand to remove the excess. Trust me, it’s better to waste a little blusher than to apply too much.
Then? Use half as much blusher and twice as much blending than you first thought you needed.
Begin to apply the color on the fullest parts of your cheeks. This should be directly below the centre of each eye.
Then smile and dust the blusher over your cheekbones and up towards your temples. Blend the color well towards the hairline to avoid harsh edges.
This effectively places color where you would naturally blush.
Cream blusher – Breaking all the traditional beauty rules, this is applied with your fingertips. It must be applied after foundation and before face powder.
It drops out of fashion from time to time, but it?s never long before it makes a comeback. This type of blush tends to give a lovely fresh glow to every skin type.
To apply, dab a few dots of cream blusher over your cheeks. This should be done from the plump part up toward your cheekbone.
Use your fingertips, blend well and build up the effect gradually. Keep adding more blusher to create just the look you want.
Or, if you prefer, you can use a foundation wedge to blend in cream blusher.
