Applying blush at first can be tricky, but it’s all about being patient and using the right tools. You want to make sure you’re using the right blush brush — preferably, you want a brush that’s dense enough to pick up colour but still fluffy enough to deposit it softly. You may also want a buffing brush on standby for any mistakes!
Finish prepping the skin and let all products sink in/dry. Whether you’re just wearing moisturiser, tinted moisturiser, or foundation, you want all these products to be applied before you to get to blush.
Taking a slightly fluffy, dense brush, gently tap it into your blush compact.
Gently tap the blush brush onto the apples of your cheek, starting from the roundest portion and tapping lightly upwards and towards your temple.
Do a sweep from the apple to the temple to diffuse and blend the colour together.
If it’s not intense enough, repeat. If it’s too bright, you can either lightly sweep upwards with your blush brush or use a buffing brush to buff some of the colour out.
