Ask Belle: The Basics of Blush
May 28, 2014
I recently started wearing makeup every day and I’m clueless on how to apply blush. Can you give me some tips? Also, what blush should I use?
Proper application depends on face shape and what your goal is. Makeup Forever explains how to apply blush for highlighting, sculpting and to achieve a healthy glow. Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily has tips on how to apply blush to accentuate your face shape.
My favorite blush brush is from Bobbi Brown, but it’s a bit pricey. I like it because the loose construction gives you a light application that you can build to your preferred look. If you’re looking for something less expensive, try this brush from Ulta.
However, if your new to blush, you would probably do better with an angled brush. This will allow you to use the brush for blush or highlighting and contour. Try this $8 brush from Real Techniques.
