MONDAY'S MAKEUP TIP - MAKE BLUSH LOOK NATURAL

After your foundation is set, apply your blush next. Elke Von Freudenberg teaches us how to apply blush and make it look natural in this weeks' tip. If you missed last weeks' tip about loose powder, read it here.

Find a blush brush that is the size of the apple of your cheek for a perfect application. Pick up your color and tap onto the apples of the cheeks, slowly blending back towards the temple. When you have enough on, take a clean makeup sponge and blend. This one step makes your blush look real, rather than just sitting on the surface of your skin. Also, by applying blush first, if you look great with just your blush on, you have the right amount. If it looks too bright or harsh, lighten it up.
