Charlotte's Tips for the Perfect Blusher Application

  1. Step 1 - SWISH

    Step 1: SWISH

    SWISH the Bronzer and Blusher Brush around the outer shade and tap off any excess. Run the brush straight up the cheekbone starting from the apple of the cheek, to structure your face.

  2. Step 2: POP

    Step 2: POP

    POP the middle shade by dipping your brush into the middle color and tap off any excess. Apply to the apples of the cheeks to make them pop and glow, and blend seamlessly together.
