Blush can be a powerful ally in your makeup arsenal, especially when your face needs a bit of color or pop to it. We love blush because it gives us that slightly flushed, natural beauty we are all trying to achieve, but did you know that the right blush can make your look and feel years younger?
Here are our top tips for selecting and applying blush to make sure you accentuate your most youthful beauty!
Choose The Right Blush
Like most makeup, there is no one size fits all solution. Try out both powder blush and cream blush. The different textures provide a totally different look and feel to your cheekbones and can offer different results.
Also, make sure you’re using the right color. Thankfully, experts at Sephora can assist you if you’re not a makeup pro and they will help make sure you’re complimenting your skin tone with the right shade of blush. That can make all the difference!
Apply It To The Right Spots
Applying your blush incorrect won’t just make you look silly, it will make you look outdated and older too. Long gone are the days of piling on so much blush your cheeks could stop traffic!
You want to be applying just enough blush that you’re getting a flushed glow and make sure you’re staying along your cheekbones. Some people will apply higher than their cheekbones to give the effect of less sagging, but this can backfire and leave you looking older than you really are.
Compliment It With Matching Lips
When blush is the only color on your face, it draws the eyes to the cheekbones which can often be one of the first places we experience sagging skin. In an attempt to draw the eye from areas prone to aging, match your blush with a similar color lipstick to draw attention to the mouth instead.
A bright lip that compliments your blush in a brighter shade will take all the attention away from your wost aging areas and also add a pop of color to your face. The result is a playful, flirty look that can take years off your appearance!
