I am BLUSHING {Quick Guide to Applying Fabulous Blush}

I have been asked why I haven't had any beauty posts lately similar to this one. To be honest, I didn't really have a good answer. Except I have felt like I am going through an 'ugly' stage. Have you ever felt like that? You know, where you just look in the mirror and know it's just not working {your face, hair... you get my point}. Then you soon snap out of the 'ugly' stage and start looking fabulous as ever. It's a cycle. Heck, maybe I am the only one who has gone through that and you are the one who has never experienced such a day. If that's true, than I kinda don't like you but please keep reading the blog! {I kid. I kid}

So, I am back with some beautylicious tips. Most of you wear blush, some more than others. I tend to go a bit heavy on the blush. I LOVE it! So, I thought I would fill you in on some 'how to's'. 

When beginning to apply your blush look straight into the mirror and apply the blush on the cheekbone from under the center of the eye to your temple. Suck in cheeks {aka the fish face} and use the darkest shade in the hollow making a 'C' shape up to the temples but not higher than eyebrows. 

You know the small blush brush that comes with the blush? Don't use it. You need to go get a full round brush. It  gives a professional look and makes the overall look softer. I would make sure and have two separate brushes for your blush and powder. 

My SECRETS: Always apply blush to tip of the nose, forehead and chin. {Don't go heavy on the blush but definitely put it under the chin. It gives the appearance of firmer skin. Which will help make the double chin not to double chinnish.} Yes, I did make up that word!!

  • Apply your blush last {make sure everything else is completed, including your eyes}. 

  • Place a small amount {i tend to go a little overboard} of blush onto the brush and tap off any excess. 

  • Everyone knows when applying to smile, or suck in your cheeks and apply the blush to the apple of your cheek. But make sure and brush it up toward your hairline

  • Always use a circular motion or short vertical movements. 

  • If there are any defines lined from to much blush... Use a clean make-up sponge to blend it in. 

Ok, now go be fabulous!  
Happy Friday! 


  1. You're not the only one who feels like you have "ugly weeks" alternating with "fabulous weeks". Story of my life Sister!! Oh, by the way, I love blush as well=)

  2. Thanks for the beauty tips! I have never owned blush but I think I might go try some... what brand do you use and what sort of shade (is it more peachy or pinkish)? Do you use any kind of bronzer with that too or just the tan towels? I am so ready for a bit of color!! And by the way, you always look smokin' hot...I want your hair!!

  3. Yay! They are back! Thanks for the tip! Now I just need to find the right color.

  4. So after looking at what blush I use it is Clinique. The color is smoldering plum. I LOVE it! I don't use any bronzer because my Tan Towel gives me more than enough bronzer! Hope thats helps. You girls make me smile. Thankful you are reading the blog :)
