Blush is something that should be subtle. Most of the time, people shouldn’t even be able to tell that you’re wearing blush. The color is VERY important when it comes to learning how to apply blush, after all, you don’t want to choose the wrong color right? To determine the color that will look best on you, take a trip outside in the cold. Stay out there for a few minutes then walk back in and see what color your cheeks are. That is the color that is going to look most natural on you!

2 Choose the Right Brand

The brand is also important. After all, there are brands out there that are a little on the cheaper side and might not be as good quality. You also want to decide if you want to choose a mineral based blush or not. For me, Covergirl and L’Oreal are my favs. What are some of yours?

Gel or powder is always the first common question people have when they are in the market for a new blush. Well ladies, it’s all up to you. Are you looking for the blush to be a little more defined?
