MakeUp Mondays | How To Apply Blush

Finally Growing has a new feature that I'm super excited to share with you guys! For those of you who may not know I'm almost as obsessed with Makeup/Beauty products as I am with healthy hair care! While I enjoy high end products I revel in finding drug equivalents at a fraction of the cost. My plans for this feature are to discuss different products, beauty methods, and of course answer any questions that y'all may have. I am not a MUA (Makeup Artist) by any stretch, but I am a girl who seriously enjoys amping up my look from time to time! In addition I hope to provide product reviews for some products that I have a hard time finding reviews for myself!

So now that I've gotten the introduction out of the way I thought I'd spend today talking about blush application. A few years back I never wore blush because I always felt like I looked like a clown, which honestly I did because I had no idea how to apply it it my cheek bones. Now every body has a different cheek bone structer. My daddy blessed me with nice ample round cheek bones, which scream put a bit of blush on me please! I believe that two things are key to proper blush application:

  • Blush brush
  • Complimentary Blush color
  • Technique
Easy peasy right? Let me explain. When I first began wearing blush I was using an E.L.F blush brush and while I love E.L.F cosmetics and even some of their brushes this brush was not for me...well not for blush application, but I'll save that for another post! Eventually I decided to invest in a Sonia Kashuk Blush Brush. This brush totally changed my application game!

My favorite blush colors especially for spring and summer are beautiful coral and peach toned blushes. They compliment my skin tone beautifully.

To apply blush I start at the apples of my cheeks and work my way toward my hairline. I start with minimal product on my brush because it's much easier to build up your blush color than to tone it down. Now please remember that there are countless ways to apply blush. This is the method that I've found works best for me and my bone structure. Until next Monday stay beautiful :)
