Basic Makeup Tutorial: Blush, by Hala Ajam

This is another article from my book Face-To-Face which you can order online.


Blush enhances and compliments ones natural skin tone; and can give you different types of looks if applied correctly.

A Natural Look

Apply peach, coral and pink shades of blush to the apple of the cheeks to create a flushed and healthy glow. Of course go for the color that best suits your skin color.

Dramatic Look

To create and enhance cheekbones, apply blusher just under the cheekbones using a natural skin-tone color only.  If suitable, go a shade or two darker to really sculpt and define, keeping in mind that the darker you go the more important it is to blend the lines together.

A few tricks: If you apply and blend upwards toward the hairline, this will elongate the face.  If you blend downwards towards the jaw line, this will make the face appear thinner.  Ultimately, the shape of your face will determine what looks best in terms of application.

Playful Look

Play with the color of blush and its application as much as you like to create a truly personal look, looking like your favorite star.  However, it is important not to go overboard with colors and quantity.
