Want a natural look that's hassle free? Cheek tint, another type of blush, gives you that summery rosy glow that can appear very au naturel. Do you want that pop of cheek colour but shy away from applying it yourself? Here are some tips on how to properly apply cheek tint so you wont end up with a clown face.
Wash your face
You want to start off with a clean face, so that your make-up application looks fresh.
Use a facial moisturizer
This is an important step if you want creamy smooth skin that isn't dry. Using a moisturizer beforehand can also make the application smoother.
You can use your finger or a brush
Whatever you prefer. Apply a dab to your fingertip for a natural look or apply a small strip for a more dramatic look.
Find the apples of your cheeks by flashing a giant smile. The round part of your cheek (them apples!) is where you apply the tint. You can now use a brush or sponge to spread the tint up from your cheeks back to your hairline.
The benefit to a cheek tint is that it lasts longer than powdered blush. Liquid cheek tints can also be easier to spread. Remember to use the right tint for your complexion. Darker complexions call for richer, deeper coloured tints while pale skin looks best with lighter pinks.
Some cheek stains can even double as lip stains, such as the Benetint Lip and Cheek Stains and Stila Lip and Cheek Stains. With the help of a little bit of cheek tint, you'll be blushing in no time, partly because of all the compliments you'll be getting!
