5 Easy Ways To Step Up Your Blush Game

Get cheeky!

1. Get dewy

Dewy skin = dreamy. So mix a little cream blush with some moisturizer on the back of your hand then pat into the apples of your cheeks—it's our fave recipe for a glowy flush.

2. Matchy makeup

Boost your blush by taking it across your lids as an eyeshadow and pat into your pout for a DIY lip tint.

3. Go two-tone

Legendary makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury pioneered the "swish & pop" technique specifically for applying blush. But what does that mean? Simply use a two-tone blush and take the more subtle shade across your cheekbones, then add a pop of color to the apples of the cheeks with a dusting of the brighter blush.


4. Highlight, highlight, highlight

The best way to enhance a feature? With sparkle. Yep, highlighting is guaranteed to draw attention to your rosy flush, so be sure to sweep a sheen-worthy highlighter over your cheekbones post-blush.

5. Use a blush topper

Wtf is blush topper you might ask? They're multi-tonal, sheer blushes with a metallic undertone (think, rose-gold and pearly silver). Dust a little over your regular blush to instantly amp it up and make your cheekbones appear 3D.
