Blush gives your cheeks a color, this ensures that your face has a healthy appearance. Ideal if your face looks a bit tired or if you are naturally pale. Blush looks very natural, naturally you sometimes have a blush on your cheeks. Blush also helps to 'shape' your face. You bring more depth to your face, making your face look slimmer. A blush on your cheeks can also boost your eye color and make it stand out.
There are of course many different colors of blush, but which color suits your skin best? Are you curious about that? It is explained exactly below which color is suitable for you:
Blush for light skin - For light skin, it is best to choose a light blush with a light pigmentation, so that the blush is not too strong. Decide for yourself whether you want a cool or a warm undertone:
Blush for medium-toned skin - You are lucky with medium-colored skin, you can actually have all colors! Surely the best colors you can choose for is a peach or coral blush. These colors will best accentuate your cheekbones.
Blush with dark skin - With dark skin it is best to choose dark blush with good pigmentation. A red blush or fuchsia pink are the perfect colors for your skin. A blush with a warm undertone will also look beautiful.
You apply the blush to the top of the apples of your cheeks. This will accentuate your cheekbones. By smiling a little in the mirror you can see the apples appear on your cheeks. From the apples on your cheeks, move towards your ear for the perfect blush line.
It is best to use a blush brush to apply your blush. TheIlu Angled Blush Kabuki is perfect for applying your blush. The brush is cut diagonally and contains high quality bristles. This makes it very easy to apply your blush.For a cream blush you can use your (clean) fingers to dab the blush into the skin. Try not to wipe but to dab, this will blend the blush best.
Try to build up the blush as much as possible. So apply smaller amounts several times, so you can be sure that you are not using too much. (oh and make sure you apply blush with enough light, otherwise chances are you are mistaken in the amount of blush you apply). And keep blending well of course!
There are also all kinds of different types of blushes, but what is the difference between a powder and cream blush?
Powder:a powder blush is generally more subtle than a cream blush, making the blush less covering. It does make a difference that you don't have to blend a powder blush as much. Because the substance is made of powder, the blush is easy to build.
Cream:a cream blush is slightly more intense than a powder blush. This makes a cream blush perfect for going out. You can also apply a cream blush very precisely, but it is important to blend it well to prevent streaks.
By using setting spray, your make-up stays in place all day, including your blush. This will prevent your blush from fading or smudging. This is a must for powder products such as bronzer, highlighter and blush! In addition, setting spray gives your face a beautiful glow all day long.
