3 Blush Makeup Mistakes And How To Avoid Them

Below is a quick post that I saw on Smoochiezz FB page. I think it’s quite a good tip thus sharing her post here! You can see her actual post HERE too..

1. Wrong type of blusher.

For starters, using the wrong formula for your skin type is a major no-no. Women with normal or combination skin will benefit from an easy-to-blend powder blush. For dry skin, cream formulas work to moisturize and hydrate as well as add a flush of color. For truly oily skin, a cheek stain boasts the best staying power.
2. Applying blusher in the wrong place.

Another big blush mistake is applying it in the wrong place. Go too high and you get that baby doll look, or go too low and it your skin appears as though it’s sagging. If you have a round/oval-shaped face, apply blush under the cheekbones for an instant lift. If your face shape is more triangular or squared, put it right on the cheekbones for the perfect pop of color.

3. Too much and not blending.

The last, but not least blush mistake is putting on too much and not blending. It’s easy to get that “too done up” appearance when you use the wrong tools. Reach for a loose, dome shape brush instead of a kabuki brush for an even application. Be sure to swirl the brush into the product and tap off any excess. To finish, blend with a clean sponge.
