We love hearing from our panel of beauty pros about the latest and greatest beauty tricks. Today, we're lucky enough to hear from New York-based makeup artist Ashley Rebecca on how to blend blush like a pro!
Whether you want to accentuate your cheekbones, or add a healthy pop of color to tie your beauty look together, blush is a coveted makeup product that most women use on a daily basis. While always important to choose shades that complement your skin tone and look natural, there's nothing worse than seeing someone with muddy-looking, streaky blush -- yikes! So what's the easiest way to blend blush without looking like a circus clown? Here are my pro tips on how to blend blush properly so that you look fresh and rosy all day long.
Keep blush on the apples of the cheeks, and blend upward with your brush in a circular motion. This will give you a natural finish, versus one that looks streaky or harsh. If you want to add contour, pop some warm bronzing powder in the hollows of your cheekbones.
3. Add Highlighter
While matte, powder blushes are great, it never hurts to add a little highlighter to your blush to accentuate a healthy glow. Some blushes have a little shimmer to them already, but you can also achieve this look by dabbing liquid highlighter (we love Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer) on top for some added dewiness. Blend subtly until you get the perfect glow.
