Step 1: Choose blush Choose your blush type. Powder and gel blushes are good for oily skin; cream is best for normal to dry skin. Whichever type you choose, its shade should match your natural coloring. Step 2: Apply blush last If you're planning to wear full makeup, don't apply blush until the rest of your face is complete. Step 3: Prepare If you're using a powder, lightly sweep a medium-sized fluffy brush through the blush and then tap it to remove any excess. If you're using a cream or gel, dab a little on your ring finger. Tip Start with just a little blush -- it's easier to add more to your face than to take off too much of it. Step 4: Find your apples Smile at yourself in the mirror to find the ?apples' of your cheeks--the round rises where you naturally flush. Step 5: Apply blush Apply the blush to the center of the apple on one side of your face, blending the color along your cheekbone. If you're using a cream or gel, dot the color first, then use your finger or a makeup sponge to blend it in. For the most natural look, always concentrate the color on the apples of your cheeks and blend well. Tip For a more youthful look, make sure to apply the blush on each side no lower than your nostril and no closer to your nose than your pupil. Step 6: If you apply too much If you accidentally apply too much powdered blush, cover it with translucent powder to tame the color. Excess cream can be blotted with a tissue. If you overdo it with a gel, wash it off and reapply sparingly. Step 7: Repeat on other cheek Repeat on your other cheek, taking care to match the placement and color of the blush on both cheeks. Step 8: Dust with power Dust your face with a translucent powder to set your new look. Did You Know? Makeup was frowned upon in Victorian England, so women would pinch their cheeks to achieve high color.
