The Perfect Flush: Choosing and applying cheek color

The ideal cheek shade gives just the right amount of color, leaving you perfectly flushed in a naturally beautiful way. Use these tips for a flawless application.

Perfect mineral blush shade

Warm vs Cool Blush Shade

The best way to choose the appropriate cheek color for yourself is to simply match one to two shades darker than the color that you naturally flush. If you tend to flush more pinky, rosy tones you want a Rosy, cool toned mineral blush. If you tend to flush more peachy, tawny tones, you want a more Golden, warm toned blush.  More neutral tones can wear either or both. Shades listed below are from lightest to darkest.

Applying your mineral blush

Step 1:

Always begin your cheek color application two-fingers width (or a brush handle) away from your nose. Get enough color on your blush makeup brush, but press the powder down into the brush head and pat or tap off excess to get a smooth and even application.

Step 2:

Starting just below the highest part of the cheekbone brush up and back toward hairline, staying below the peak of the cheekbone and temple area. This will give you the perfect natural-looking flush.

Step 3 (Optional):

If you want to add a pop of color on the cheekbone, choose a brighter shade and brush just on the apples of the cheek before blending back to the hairline.

How to apply mineral blush on cheekbones

Makeup artist tip:

Avoid adding too much color and not blending enough below and above the cheekbone (see photo below.) While you don't want to specifically apply color here, blend the application out over the entire cheek, so it looks like a natural flush.
