For the final result of the make-up to be optimal, color and lighting touches are required, which will be done with powders or cream products, depending on the chosen make-up process. Depending on where the blush is placed, the area of the cheek “sinks” slightly (the tone is usually darker than the skin).
We must strategically choose the location of the blush on the cheek so that it will eventually accomplish a corrective mission.
To make up with blush we’ll put an imaginary quadrant on your face. To do this, we will draw three imaginary lines that intersect between two of them descend from the pupil downwards, and the other crosses perpendicularly under the nose.
That quadrant indicates the area where the blush will be placed.
We must brush the bone without expanding outside the lines of the imaginary quadrant.
The ideal is to be measured with the amount of product that we will use and work with soft brushes, without pressing them on the skin. We must also opt for shades that simulate natural blushing.
If we work with appropriate brushes or, in its replacement, with a soft cotton ball, the fuzziness will be perfect and the color will appear subtly.
If the face has a very narrow jaw, it is ideal to apply blush to the upper part of the quadrant, because if we apply it underneath the face would look even more drained and thinner.
Conversely, if the face is strong in its lower part or with thick and prominent cheeks, blushing on the lower part of the quadrant will help to stylize and reduce the area.
In general, women prefer powder blush (it is more installed among users as a cosmetic element) although cream blush is a fantastic element and even easier to apply because it requires only the fingers.
The Right Choice of Blushes
The shades of blush should be chosen considering the overall skin tone and makeup palette is chosen.
For artificial light, there is nothing better than mandarin blush. This tone responds very well to any light, whether warm or cold.
In cold light, fuchsia blushes containing blue in their composition can produce a bruised effect on the skin.
The hair on the brush should rotate in a circular motion over the cheek.
In the faces where there are predominantly rounded faces, or where it is necessary to design a make-up that stylizes and sharpens the features, the lines indicated are straight. To do this, the brush must be moved on the skin in a linear way, without making circular movements. However, these should be done when the face is excessively sharp, denoted bones, and makeup is needed to shape and smooth it.
