Correct Your Technique
If you're going to spend $60, $90, even $200 on brushes and applicators for your makeup, then isn't it time you started to blush and brush correctly?! Since we're always in a state of learning (hopefully), add this card to and the information from it to perfect your techniques, which I learned from Makeup Forever.

Circle 8s

Apply the blush on top of the cheekbone. Begin at the hairline and blend inwards to the apple of the cheek with movements in the shape of an “8”.
Best For:
Suits all face shapes.
Result:
Natural, defined.

Soft Circles

Apply the blush to the apple of the cheek in circular motions.
Best For:
Long and triangular faces.
Result:
Natural, refreshed.

Sweeping Highlight

Apply the blush to the cheek in sweeping motions--back and forth.
Best For:
Oval faces.
Result:
Creates dimension.

Sculpting

Begin application at the hairline (at the middle of the ear) and blend towards the mouth to sculpt the cheek . Then, blend upwards to emphasize the size of the cheekbone.
Best For:
Round and square faces.
Result:
Natural, defined.
