Chose the right colour

Opt for a creame blush that manages to make a simple state-of-the-art creamy easy blend and imparts a natural finish that is smooth, dewy, fresh and long-lasting. You have a choice to show a bit of contour or go for a sweeter appearance around the cheek bone- Creame blush is back and due to makeup technology it has been improved from the days of your grandmother as it now blends flawlessly to your foundation. If you are not too comfortable with a creame blush then go for a Cream colour base blush as this is versatile and multi-purposed. This can be applied directly to bare skin or layered over foundation, moisturiser or powder.




Chose the right application brush or sponge

Apply blush with a brush, sponge or with your fingers. Colour effects range from a light veil to highly dramatic depending on method of application. If you are using a brush go for one that is tapered for shading and highlighting cheeks. Please note that the bristles on the brush should be soft and form a round shape.




Always apply and blend your blush powder properly.
