The most classic technique for applying blush is moving in an upward motion, along the apples of your cheek. Makeup is just as innovative as fashion, so new techniques are always on the rise. This summer blush is in, and so is trying new ways to apply it. Applying blush just above the apple of your cheeks will make your eyes light up. If you wear highlighter regularly, then adding blush at the crease of your jaw bone will enhance this look. For a more dramatic appeal try applying blush from the corner of your eyes, to your temple.
