Placement is Everything for the Most Natural Looking Blush

This beauty has everything to smile about.


Not so long ago, my face was rounder than it is now.  As you can imagine, finding my cheekbones was challenging to say the least without a chiseled, well-defined bone structure.  For a long time, I was under the assumption that the best way to uncover those cheekbones was to suck in your cheeks.

It took me a while to figure out that there was a better way to find the cheekbones.  However, I did notice that applying blush to the apples of the cheeks gave more natural results.

If you are uncertain as to the exact location of those apples of the cheeks, then the simplest approach is to stand in front of your mirror and smile.  The spot where you want to concentrate on is that round, lifted area for your blush.   This method will never let you down when you want to make sure that your blush is properly placed.

Don’t forget to make sure that the blush gets thoroughly blended up into your hairline to keep the look real. Any difficulty you might encounter blending  could mean that you are using the wrong shade of a blush. This problem is easily corrected by switching to a paler, more neutral blush color that will more easily blend into your skin.

Thanks for the tip! I've actually done both, sucked in my cheeks and smiled. I will quit sucking in my cheeks now. :)
