Cheeks Makeup Tips
These cheek makeup tips will give you an extra boost of beauty.
Know your skin:
Everyone has a different skin tone and type, which we should be aware of. This allows us to pick the right blush. You will have fewer chances of making mistakes when choosing the correct blush color for your skin tone and skin type. For dry skin, you should use cream blush-on to moisturize. The rest of the types can apply powder blush-on. Cool undertones are required if you have fair skin. You should choose mauve and pink colors. Warmer undertones are required for dark, dusky, or medium skin tones. Use orange, cinnamon, or other warm colors to highlight your cheeks.
Know your facial contour:
Round faces The best way to compliment your round face is by starting at the top of your ear and blending the blush evenly to create a flawless look. This creates definition and elongation on a round face.
Long faces If you have a long facial shape, then focus color on the apples of your cheeks. Finish by moving it up to the ears. This will give you more width and even out your features.
Square-shaped faces: Start at the top of your ear and work your way down to the apple to create an angular appearance.
Faces with heart shapes: To give your face a natural, soft tint and definition, you can apply cream blush to the apples of your cheeks to complement it.
For a natural blush, follow these steps:
It doesn’t mean you have to wear the same look every day. You can experiment with different blushes. A cream blush is better than a powder blush if you want glowing cheeks. Cream blushes can be applied with your fingers or with a stippling tool. To avoid any bacterial infections, always wash your hands after using your fingers.
Choose a cream blush that matches your skin tone. Blend it onto the apples of your cheeks, then blend it gently across the cheek. You must be careful not to get it too close to the nose. Keep at least two fingers in space from the nose. The best way to get a natural, a pretty flush is to blend with your fingertips.
For a sculpted face:
You can achieve sculpted cheekbones defined and shaped in 5 minutes or less without any surgery or spending hours at the gym. To get a smoother face, place your blush on the cheekbones. Blend it quickly upwards. We don’t want to draw any lines on our cheeks. This look is all about blending. Warmer colors will add depth to your face, so I recommend using them. For instant deep cheekbones, use a blush or bronzer two tones darker than your skin. This will give you a beautiful lifted complexion. This look is best avoided with shimmery blushes.
To get a Dewy Face:
Apply a foundation first, then apply cream blush. It should be blended into your cheeks. To give your skin a beautiful dewy glow, add a liquid highlighter to the cream blush at the top of your face. The liquid highlighter will reflect light, giving your cheeks a natural glow.
For day or night, cheek makeup:
Use your blush lightly during the day. You will achieve a diffused effect by using subtle blush colors. Heavy makeup looks more artificial and plastic in the daylight. You can use deeper, more dramatic colors at night to create stunning and captivating effects. For a night look, you can use liquid highlighters and shimmery blushes. They create the illusion of glowing cheeks.
Avoid using blotchy makeup on your cheeks:
Apply powder blushes and cream blushes to a well-prepared base. A light BB cream or foundation can be used as a base. Apply blush without using foundation or even a setting powder. The oils in your skin can make the blush look blotchy, and it will not flatter your face.
Use a light touch:
While bright colors are great for painting, they won’t look good on your face. Always work with a lighter hand. Start with a smaller amount of product, and then work your way up. It would be best to start with blushes in a light tone before moving on to pigmented.
Wear your cheek makeup for a long time:
Let me conclude my article with a tip on making your cheek makeup last longer. First, invest in good quality, long-lasting blushes with great staying power. To avoid blotchiness, and prolong the wear of your cream blushes, make sure you use a matching powder blush. To make your powder blushes last longer, you can use a makeup setting spray to set them.
