Ever stood at a makeup aisle and stared at the array of blushers available and struggled with picking a colour that would work for you? After all, you don't want to go too light that it looks like you're not wearing blush at all (or worse: making you look too pale and washed-out); nor do you want a blush that's too bright that it makes you look like you're constantly embarrassed and shy around everyone. 

A perfect blush is all about balance. It should blend perfectly into your skin, enhance your natural skin tone's blushing colour, and complement your overall #MOTD. The end goal after all is to just add a sweet wash of colour to bring dimension to your skin.

So to help you out, here are a few tips to keep in mind for a flawless blush application every time.

--------------------------

Aim for a good skin base



For any makeup to sit flawlessly on your skin, you need to have a good skin base to begin with. It doesn't mean you need perfect, crystal clear skin. But it's all about creating a smooth base for your makeup to blend on without it clinging on to dry patches or emphasizing flaws. So be sure to prep your skin before hand with a good skin regimen targeted at making your skin smooth and hydrated.
Pick a colour that works for you



For that perfect blush, you need to select shades that will work well with your skin-tone. Fair-skinned girls should go for soft-pink or light-coral shades. If you're medium-toned, choose warm-mauve or deep peach shades. Darker skin-tones girls can experiment with darker colours such as deep fuchsia or tangerine.


What's your skin type?



There are a variety of blush products out there from powder, cream, liquid--and they all come in a variety of finishes. So pick a product that will work well on your skin type. If you're oily skinned, go for matte, powder blushes with a good colour payoff to last the day. Those with dry-skin can opt for cream or liquid blushes for a hydrated, radiant flush. If you have combination skin, pick a powder blush with a sheen finish to give your skin a subtle glow.


It's all in the application



Don't let your blush overwhelm your face with a botched application technique. To keep your flush looking natural and well-blended with the rest of your makeup look, apply it softly with a stippling brush. This brush allows you to slowly work the product onto your skin in gentle layers.
