When it comes to blush, how and where you apply it is more important than what color you use. Cheek color shouldn't be limited to the apples (no one blushes only on their cheeks!).
I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the nose to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of color.
Blush is the fastest and easiest way to give yourself a pick-me-up.
Start by applying blush to the apples of the cheeks. Take what's left on the brush and sweep across the hairline, bridge of the nose, and the chin.
Neutral-tone blushes can also be used to contour and sculpt the skin. –James Boehmer, Director of Global Artistry
Smile and apply blush to the apples of the cheeks using the Yachiyo Brush. For a dimensional, contoured look, apply a shimmer blush to the apples and a matte blush to the hollows of the cheeks. –Shayna Shapiro, Lead Trainer
For a complexion that is oilier with more pronounced pores, apply a matte powder blush to cheeks before a shimmer blush. It will allow the shimmer to glide on cheeks more smoothly and evenly, and allow color to look fresh all day long. –Uzo, International Makeup Stylist
