Step 1: Start by perfecting the canvas using your preferred coverage product – whether it’s tinted moisturiser, powder or liquid foundation.

Step 2: Blush should be centralised on the apple of the cheeks to mimic the body’s natural response when body transports blood to the cheeks.

Step 3: Finding the apples of your cheeks is very simple – just smile and the area of your cheeks that lifts is the apple.

Step 4: A large part of getting the application right is using the correct tool, get a blush or kabuki brush to get the right deposit of colour from the product onto your cheeks.

Step 5: Dusting the colour from the apple of your cheeks to towards your ear is incorrect. You have to swirl the brush in circular motions on the apple of your cheeks.
