How to apply blush on

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, so try to pick one that reflects your colour when you blush normally

  • Select a color that will accent your existing best facial features and that won’t stand out too much. Bright red may not look great on a pale person but can be terrific on a bronzed brown skin tone.
  • If you’re pale, try a soft pink color or maybe even something with a little tan and pink in it.
  • Depending on your skin tone, you might need a lighter or a darker color. Dark skin needs a lighter color, whereas light skin may need a more natural color such as brown or tan.
  • It is suggested that to select the right color of blush, make a fist for about ten seconds, and the resulting color on your fingers is the color that you want to match


For long face shapes, apply blush on the apples and blend out towards the temples.

*Tip: To get a natural lit from within flush for any face shape, first apply a cream blush with a fluffy blush like Hourglass No. 2 Blush Brush (or you can cheat and use your fingers), then apply your foundation as you normally would. Finish off with a powder blush.
