Next, you will need to lightly dab your blush brush into the blush. You can use any color that you would like; there are a lot of great blush colors available to choose from.

However, make sure you do not grab that much blush and that you tap the brush on the side of the container a couple of times to get rid of extra powder.
4. Apply The Blush

Once the blush is on your applicator, smile like you normally would throughout the day. While looking in the mirror, sweep the brush from the apple of your cheek over to your ear.

You should now see a light pink color show through where you just applied the brush.

Repeat this on the other cheek so that both sides have the same amount of pink on each.
5. Apply Powder

To finish the process, take some translucent powder and brush it on your skin under the bottom of the eyes. Then, blend the powder in gently until you have the look you desire.

This will soften the blush and make it appear more natural. It will also give you a nice glow that makes you look more vibrant.

Tutorial: How To Apply Blush - Additional Tips

  • If you applied too much blush; don’t panic! All you have to do is take a clean brush and sweep it over the blush area on your cheeks. You can also use a soft and clean hand towel if you don’t want to use one of your brushes.
  • Don’t apply blush all over your face. Make sure you only brush it on the apples of your cheeks in a soft sweeping motion. Too much blush is going to make your face looked flush and very red.
  • There are hundreds of colors available out there for all skin tones. However, it’s important to use the right color of blush on your cheeks. Also, you should make sure the color that you choose does not have shimmer in it.
  • Practice in the mirror on a day when you have some spare time. This will allow you to perfect your technique so you don’t mess it up when you already have a full face of makeup on.
