Sculpt Cheekbones The Easy Way
If you know these makeup artist blush tips then you can create the illusion of natural high cheekbones, even if you weren’t born with them. Some women need a little help accentuating their cheek area. Blush colors when applied correctly can make your face appear thinner and give you a healthy look, too.
Your Natural Blush Color
Choose a color that is apricot for your everyday blush color.
Apricot is a combination of both peach and pink and not only does it go with any lip color, but it is also the most natural color.
Good alternatives include beige peach, brown pink, and sandy colors.
Determine which one you choose by the way you blush naturally after exercising.
Deeper blush colors can be used for evening.
