Blush is one of the best types of makeup because it can brighten your face and enhance almost any other makeup palette or trend, Teen Vogue reports. However, to use these types of cosmetics to your best advantage, it is important to know how to choose the right shade and apply it skillfully.
One way to choose the right color blush is to use your eye color as a guide, the news outlet reports. Sweep the product onto your eyelids. If it does not look good against your eyes, it is not the right shade for your skintone.
Once you find the right shade, the way you apply the blush is also important. Whether you use a kabuki brush or your favorite from another makeup brush set, the best way to apply powder blush is to smile and dab it on the apples of your cheeks, according to the publication. Blend from your cheeks upward along your cheekbones in the direction of your ears. For powder blush, the deepest color should be high on the cheekbone near your ear, but if you are using cream or gel blush, the brightest point should be the center of your cheek.
