Blusher application may not necessarily be the easiest step. Too much may cause you to end up looking like you’ve got a rash and some powders or creams may not be the most blendable, leaving it looking patchy. I personally enjoy applying blusher though, as I love the end result; it really helps to brighten my overall complexion, and give my skin a fresh-faced glow.
But instead of just using one blusher, I have recently adopted the three-step blusher technique of layering different shades to not only give my cheeks a pop of colour, but to also create natural contouring and highlighting. I first came across this method while watching popular K-beauty vlogger Edward Avila on YouTube.
How the technique works: first, apply a light, luminous shade of pink (a pastel, baby pink is great too) across your cheekbones and nose bridge. This helps to highlight and impart a radiant glow to your skin. After which, add on a coral shade to add some warmth and contour (sometimes, I even gently brush it across my nose bridge). Lastly, apply a shade of blusher of your choice. This can range from hot pinks to purples to add colour.
