5 Easy Steps To Get That Perfect Natural Blush

by Zainab Burmawala

Out of all the products you use to paint your face with, the blush instantly adds radiance and colour to your face. All girls don’t usually have naturally rosy cheeks; it’s the cheeky little blush that gives you that illusion of an inner glow. The flushed look is so in trend, even a dash of blush can make your makeup look healthily au naturel. It brightens up your complexion and is an essential product to keep in your kits as your makeup will always look incomplete unless you’ve dusted some of the peachy/rosy product on your cheeks. Here are 5 essential steps for you to make your blush game stronger.

1.Pick the right blush for your skin type

It’s important to pick the correct blush for your skin type. If you have oily skin, opt for a powder blush as powder tends to get rid of the excess oil.

If you have dry skin, you could simply go ahead with a cream blush for that healthy moisturizing finish on your cheeks.

For normal to combination skin, you can shuffle between cream and powder.

2.How to pick the right shade of blush

Try the blush out and seek advice from the retail person at a counter. If you go to any high-end store, the artists who work for the store will guide you well. If you’re picking one out from the drugstore, I suggest you go for the trial and error method at a makeup counter. See what color looks best on your skin and choose a product then. People with fairer complexion should opt for light pinks, peachy, rosy and coral blushes. People with deeper skin tones should go for a deep bronze, dark pink, bright pink or orange.

3.The finish matters

Blushes come in matte and shimmery finishes. If your skin is oily or you have visible acne marks, it’s better if you stick to a matte blush and the shimmer will attract unnecessary attention to the marks making them even more evident. For people with dry or clear skin, a blush with a sparkling finish works for you.

4.How to apply it correctly according to your face type

This is the step that could make or break your entire makeup look. You do not want to look like a clown by creating two bright circles on your cheeks. Nobody appreciates the Ronald McDonald look unless it’s Halloween. Pick a good brush and take very little product on. Make sure you dust off the excess before patting the product on your cheeks in light circular motions. If you face is small, stick to applying blush on the apples of your cheeks. You can apply a cream blush using your fingers and powder blush using a brush. If your face is fuller, apply the blush in the conventional method by applying it on the apple of the cheek moving outwards, and stroke the blush along the cheekbones.


5.Fixing the blush if you’ve gone wrong

If you’ve dabbed way too much product on, all you need to do is pick up a tissue and lightly dab it over the cheeks removing the excess blush from the area. You can use your fingers to even out any spots. Finish with a layer of your setting powder to make the cheeks look more natural and you’re good to go.
