Check out the way I apply blush versus bronzer for 2 different looks.

Keep this blush hack and bronzer idea in mind the next time you’re putting on your makeup!

Start by applying your go-to base makeup (primer, SPF, foundation, concealer). Add whatever eye makeup and lip color that you want.

Tools and materials:

  • Brush or bronzer
  • Fan brush 
  • Blush brush 

1. Bronzer

For more of a sun-kissed look, when you feel like wearing bronzer instead of blush:

Use a fan makeup brush to pick up some bronzer.

Hold your backward hand up to your cheek and scoop the cheekbone with your thumb and index finger. 

Applying bronzer

The shape of the bronzer, thanks to your hand placement and bush type, should be elongated toward your temples.

2. Blush

When you prefer a rosy cheek:

Apply blush to a blush brush.


With your backward hand, make an L shape going from the bottom of your nose and up to your temple.

Fill in with blush along the inside of this L shape. 

Applying blush

This rosy cheek is slightly more concentrated at the apples of your cheeks to make them look full but still lifted.
