How to apply Blush (Video Tutorial)


Hey everyone!

This is one of the most requested videos recently and I hope this will help beginners with their blush application. Blush adds dimension to the face, a healthy color to the cheeks and acts a bridge between the eyes and the lips. I personally love using blush and I’ve used one of my favorites (MAC Fleur Power) in this Video.

There are many different techniques for blush application based on face shapes. But a ‘sculpted’ approach (shown in this video) works for most people.Β For rounder faces (like mine), this is the best way to apply blush as it enhances cheekbones, gives a more structured look to the face and balances the roundness.
