1. Start with an angled blush brush (something not too fluffy which will help you control and contour).
2. Begin by applying blush to the apples of the cheeks and lightly stroking up and outward.
3. Continue applying going sideways horizontally and then slightly down outwards focusing mainly on the apples of the cheeks.
Optional: go over with a larger fluffier brush to blend and soften blush.

Tip: Use pink based blushes for cool skin tones. Use peach/apricot based blushes for warm skin tones.

Tools: Real Techniques brush, Make-up Forever Aqua Crème blush in #9 Coral.
