Where to Apply Liquid Blush

Where you apply liquid blush depends on the formula and finish of your blush and your face shape, but a general rule is that liquid blush should be applied to the apples of your cheeks and blended up to the tops of the cheekbones.

To identify to the apples of your cheeks, slightly smile into the mirror - the center of the plumpest area of your cheeks in the apple. When applying, your blush shouldnt be applied any closer to your nose than in line with the center of your eyes, and then blended up and outwards for a lifting-effect and glowing finish.
