All the Blush Techniques Used By Professional Makeup Artists
Just like with lipstick or eyeliner, blush can be used to achieve different aesthetics depending on how and where it’s applied.
💄You can create a healthy, natural-looking glow by swirling a small dab of colour onto the apples of the cheeks and buffing it out in circular motions.
💄Another technique is Draping that can be done with a soft and fluffy, smaller-to-medium sized brush and simply involves applying it on the temple area, draping the colour downward across the cheekbones so that it frames the face.
💄Sun-Kissed: All Over Glow
This technique works best when applied on top of bronzer. It acts as a base layer that helps to diffuse the blush’s pigment so it doesn’t come off too harsh against the skin.
💄If you want to create a definition without contouring, blush is an excellent alternative. The best way to achieve this sculpted, sophisticated look is to buff your blush directly onto the cheekbones, and just above — almost where you would normally place highlighter.
