    How To Apply Blush

    1# First choose the color using nature as your guide. According to InStyle, the trick is to find a color that matches your cheeks when they're flushed after exercise or being out in the cold. For a quick test, 'spank' your cheeks & use the resulting color as a guide. (We suggest doing this in the comfrot of your home away from other people, wink). Another trick is to match your lip color. Fair skin looks great in rose, olive in peach & dark skin in apricot or even red.
    2# Now that you have the color, choose the right formula for your skin type. Powder is typically best for oily & combo skin. Cream is great for dry skin. Liquid and gel are great for oily skin. For even better results, combine cream & powder together. "It helps my blush stay on longer & looks more luminous," said makeup artist Laura Mercier in O Magazine . Keep in mind stains -- great for well-moisturized skin, not dry skin -- tend to dry very fast so blend well & fast.
    3# Apply foundation, eye color & lipstick. While blush is usually your 2nd-to-last makeup step (before powder), you should experiment with what works best for you. Some makeup artists like to apply blush BEFORE foundation for a more 'natural' look.
    4# Throw out the freebie 'Barbie-size' blush brush that comes with the blush. Use a professional full brush instead (I like MAC's blush brush No. 116), but don't use the same brush you use for your powder.
    5# Put the blush on your brush, tapping off any excess or put a dab of gel on your fingers.
    6# Look into the mirror and smile. This helps you figure out where the 'apple' of your cheek is.
    7# Since you want a healthy flush, it's best to apply blush only to apples of your cheeks. Keep color light & blended. If you're using gel or cream, NYC makeup artist Carlo Geraci (in O Magazine) suggests dabbing it on with your middle finger, then blend with your ring & middle finger. The clean finger will pick up any excess blush.
    8# If you've gone a bit too heavy on the powder blush, a bit of translucent powder over it will calm it down. For cream blush, blot the color off with a tissue. Since gel & liquid blush 'stain' the cheeks, the only way to lighten them is it wash your face, moisturize and reapply your makeup, this time more sparingly.
    9# Finish your look with a sweep of translucent powder.

    nice...well with my blush i do use the big blush, and sometimes after the blush i take the brust and and just like sweep it (not that rite word, but ohh well) on my for head and chin...like the blush doesnt show, but to blend it in..also i use my hands..after i apply the blush to my cheeks and i rub my hands against my cheek going up and down, which does an amazing job for blending...i mean im not really allowed to put on make-up so i dont want my blush to be notice-able..and no one thinks that i put it on..its just gives me face like a fresh rosy look...i think my mom still dont kno that i put it on...lol..it loos pretty natural..if ur like me, into natural beauty....sorry this is long...
