- 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.
For oval faces, apply blush on the apples of the cheeks and blend with a blush brush.
*Tip: For something a little more dramatic, after you’ve applied foundation and a powder blush, apply a second powder blush using an angled brush like MAC #168. If you get a little crazy with the color, just dust loose powder on your cheek bones to tone it down.
To slim a round face, apply your blush in an angular motion blending from the apples of the cheeks towards the temples.
*Tip: If you have dry skin or fine lines and wrinkles, try a cream blush. If your skin is oily, stick to powder blush. Powder blush is also better when the temps go up, while cream blush is better for cold weather.
