A variety of colors adds to the fun!

Step 1: Warm or Cool?

To select a color, you are going to decide two things: a) What color will be complimentary to the rest of my makeup? and b) What makes me feel CONFIDENT! Let’s say you are wearing a plum colored eye shadow, wearing a purplish pink blush will compliment your eyeshadow better than an orange blush, just as if you’re wearing a copper shadow, an orangish blush would be more suitable. Select colors in the same color family, warm or cool. You can imagine warm colors like fire, oranges, reds and yellows, and cool colors, think of ice. Blues, purples, and greens.

Are you hot? Or cool?

Step 2 : Swirl girl

Once you have selected a color that will glow with confidence, lightly swirl your blush brush into it. Then, swirl your brush into a tissue. Your brush will look like there is nearly nothing on it, which is perfect. Now, to decide where to apply, simply smile! The fleshiest part of the cheek, referred to as the apple, is the only place you will apply color. Brush on until you see a light wash of color.
