Makeup Mondays With Mario: You’re Blushing!

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

First, I want to say that I’m a big fan and so in awe of your talent. How and where should I apply blush, for a natural-looking flush? Also, do you have any advice for what shades of blush look best on different complexions?

Thanks so much, Nicole
Hi Nicole,

Thanks so much! Choosing the right color and texture of blush is the trick to getting a natural-looking flush. First you want to be sure that your skin is evened out with your base. If you’re going for a cream blush, don’t use powder on your cheeks. If you choose a powder blush, definitely use a bit of translucent powder to set the makeup so that the blush wont get blotchy.

Now that skin is properly prepped, you can grab your blush brush in front of a mirror and smile. Apply the color right onto the apples of the cheeks. Start with a little product and add more if needed. Do not take the color all the way to the temples/ears unless you’re getting dressed for a 70’s/80’s themed party! Blend the color with your brush to be sure there aren’t any lines, etc.

For lighter skin tones, go with pink and peachy colors. Darker skin tones can also use these colors, but should have more yellow and/or red undertones to avoid looking ashy. Reds also look great on dark skin. Play around and have fun! Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with me!xo,
