Most women who are conscious about their looks love to highlight the positive features on their face so that they can capture maximum eye balls and one way of doing it is applying the right makeup. Women rather have an intimate and age-old love affair with makeup. These days top makeup brands offering good quality makeup are available but in the olden times the picture was not so.
However that could not stop women from satisfying their makeup needs. They harnessed Mother Nature to get the necessary products for beautifying themselves. For instance they colored their lips with the extracts of mashed mulberry and for eye makeup they used soot or powdered charcoal mingled with olive oil. Red ochre or powdered form of iron oxide was applied on the cheeks for reddening them. It in fact functioned as the blusher in the ancient times.
Yes, blusher does play a vital role in the entire beautification or make up rites of a woman though the most talked about topics are eye makeup, lip makeup and so on. But you would obviously not want your cheeks to look pale when the rest of your face is glowing and glittering with makeup. And that’s the reason you need to use a blusher. Your blusher balances the color of your cheeks with your overall facial makeup. Also it does the job of concealing minor spots, blemishes and pin hole-like marks that a previous attack of acne might have left on your cheeks, giving your cheeks a glossy smooth and rosy effect.
If you want to get a flawless look, no matter which ever best brand of blusher you are applying on your face, you need to know the right blusher application secrets or tips. Here are some of my proven blush application tips for you girls:
- When it comes to applying blusher, you should keep in mind the color you are selecting and that very much depends on your complexion. In most cases all women tend to opt for the commonplace pink blushers but only the fairest ones look good with pink blushers. If you have a wheatish complexion wear bright peach blushers. Medium complexions should play safe and go for coral or peach shades only. Those will look best on them. Dark complexioned women should opt for blushers coming in berry or bright orange shades.
- It’s wise not to opt for the cream blushes. They aren’t long-lasting and get smudged up easily. Also they create an artificial look by making your cheeks excessively glossy. For perfect finish, natural glow, long-lasting effect, you should go for powder blushes.
- Apply blushes with the correct strokes. It should be applied on the ‘authentic’ cheeks right from the middle of the cheekbones and you have to swing the brush up as well as out so as to blend the blush powder perfectly imparting your cheeks a natural colorful glow.
- Be careful not to take the brush too very close to mouth or nose or else your face will get an odd puffy effect.
So these are some top blush application tips which you can follow to look flawless and have the spotlights on you. 🙂
