If I am allowed to wear just one makeup product all my life, I would honestly go with a blush. A single swipe of blush can actually transform your entire look. 

I like the fact that the blush can add a natural flush of colour to the face and lift it instantly. Most of us think that using a face blush is pretty easy but it isn't. The blush is way more than just colour on your cheekbones. 

I have made a couple of blush mistakes all these years and thought of sharing them with you. Also will be sharing how you can prevent these blush mistakes. 

Picking The Wrong Blush Formula

If you are a makeup lover you know that there is an endless variety of face blushes available in the market. From regular powder blushes to cream ones and matte to shimmer ones, you get a lot of options to choose from. 

While picking a blush for you, it is important you choose the right formula. For instance, I never go for shimmery blushes because I have large pores around my cheek area and shimmer can highlight them further. On the other hand, if you have a dry skin, it is best to avoid matte blushes as they can make your face look more dried out. 

Going for a creamy formula may not work well for those with oily skin. So, pick the formula accordingly. 

Using Too Much Blush

right way to use blush

Yes, those flushed cheeks give you a beautiful pink colour but that doesn't mean you go overboard with it. Make sure you keep a check on the quantity of the product you are using. 

It is best to apply the blush in natural light and use a regular blush brush or your fingers to apply it. 

Applying The Blush On The Wrong Spot

Where you apply the blush plays a key role in defining your face. The best way is to smile and swipe the product on the apples of your cheeks. Do not blend it down or up too much that it ends up spoiling your look.

Coral and pink are the most pick shades as they work for most Indian skin types. However, if you wish to go low-key or loud depending on your outfit, you can always blend and create a different shade.

Not Applying It In The Right Motion

Different makeup products come with different formulas and you should apply them accordingly. You should be applying the blush according to its formula. 

For instance, you should swipe a powder blush once or twice as per the colour you need. For a cream formula, you should dab it on your cheekbones. Don't forget to finish off with a setting spray or your blush will be gone in a few hours. Most blushes do not have a long-staying power. 

Adding some blush to your face instantly lifts up your look. Make sure you do it right. If you have any more questions related to using the blush then write them to us on our Facebook page and we would be happy to answer!
