When it comes to beauty talk, not all girls are into bold makeup looks like the out of this world graphic eyeliner trend, or even the supercool dark lip rage that has singlehandedly taken over the beauty department. While plum lippies and vibrant eye shadow pots are optional when it comes to creating a strong beauty look, a blush, on the other hand, is not.

Whether you're going for a trendy beauty face, or a fuss free no makeup-makeup look, a blush is necessary to create a pretty and healthy-looking flush! Although blushing isn't as hard as mastering the cat eye flick, knowing where to add color to your face can be a little bit of a challenge for some girls, too. So, to make sure that your blushing game is just as strong as your brow and lip game, we're sharing with you four easy ways to apply your favorite blush depending on the beauty look that you’re going for.

The Classic Way

For a natural-looking, classic flush, grab your go-to blush, and apply it on top of your cheekbone. Swipe it upwards and make sure to blend well!

Let It Glow

A healthy flush isn't just pretty to look at, it is a sign of healthy, vibrant skin, too! To create a healthy glow, instead of applying your favorite blush on top of your cheekbones like you normally would, pat the color on the apples of your cheeks, and blend.

Highlight It

If you haven't familiarized yourself with the highlighting trick yet, you've got nothing to worry about, Candy Girls because you can use your trusty blush to get lit! Add color in areas where strobing is usually done like your upper cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and your chin. Don't worry about adding color to these areas because this blushing trick creates a subtle, but evident glow with a healthy flush every girl will surely love.

Drape, drape, drape

Just like the blushing highlight technique, draping is similar to the Kardashian-approved contouring technique, but instead of using a stick or powder, you use your blush. Aside from adding color to your face, the draping technique also sculpts your cheekbones making it look higher and stronger in a snap!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
