4 Hacks to Help You Wear Your Blush Like a Pro

There’s a lot a little blush can do. Bonus: We’ve got the intel on which colour suits your skin tone best.

1. Instant Reset
Don’t want to put on a full face of make-up? Apply a powder formula to freshly-moisturised skin (it makes the powdery texture adhere better to skin) to get an instant glow. A primer works just as well and makes the product stay put longer.

 

2. Cream Control

When applying a cream formula, place two fingers next to the nose and the fold-up below the cheekbone, and blend upwards—it creates a lift in the face.

 

3. It’s a Match

Mixing two complementing shades can help you create a multi-dimensional effect. All you need to do is pick a light and a dark hue—apply the lighter one on the apples of your cheek and the darker one right under it, and you’re done.

 

4. Blush It Right
Using the right tool to apply blush is essential, as it literally does the job for you. Pick a large, fluffy brush to dust your cheeks—it absorbs less product and leaves you with an even finish that looks oh-so-natural.

 

THE COLOUR PARTNER FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

FAIR SKIN TONE

Pale pink is the shade for you—it gives one a subtle flush and looks perfectly natural.

MEDIUM SKIN TONE
Peach is a universally flattering colour...you just can’t go wrong with it! This shade works well if you have a yellow undertone as peach has an orange and yellow tone, so it enhances the natural flush.

DARK SKIN TONE
Deep fuchsia, berry, warm brown, and raisin shades are a great way to highlight your cheeks, but still look natural.
