How to Apply Blush | Makeup Tutorials


“Hi, I am Patricia Langer and I am a celebrity
make-up artist.I have worked with models from sports illustrated like Brooklyn Decker and
Julie Anderson to Alec bodan at thirty walk. All that things the experts do that the average
person doesn’t know how to do we will learn how to do it on these videos. There are three tools, I like using, to blush. A Blush Brush, a Precision Brush and a Contour
Brush.I like to start with the precision brush.What this does is I try to get a little contouring
in first.So I choose a little darker blush. And i go right where her cheek and her jaw
meets.OK so my precision brush is going straight in the middle between the cheek and the jawline
and it gives her just a little bit of contouring.So I have chosen a peach color for Catherine.Peach
is very pretty on her.I take a blush brush.It is a little round.Circle it.I wish I had to
dab a little bit off the blush.You don’t want it too heavy.I always ask my model to smile.And
if you are doing it you would be smiling n the mirror.And I do a little bit on the apples
just the circular motion.Then bring it up a little bit, near the temple.And that gives
her just a little bit of color on the apple. And I used a matte peach blush. It gave her a very natural, but yet she looks
very alive.Blush shouldn’t look like you are looking like you are blushed.It should make
you feel awake, bright and happy.Now that is some matte look.Some people prefer a shimmer.I
love shimmer blushes.I love to have fun with shimmer co lours.Now, I don’t want to put
too much on her because I have already put a blush that is matte.But if I want to add
a little bit of shimmer on top of a matte blush, if I was going out and I wanted to
change my look, that is when I get my little contour brush.What I do is, I take a little
bit on both sides of this shimmer blush and I would just dab a little bit. dab.. and dab..bringing it down.. same places
where I put the blush on the apple all the way up to the temple.And then I take a little
more shimmer and the I put a little a bit on the top of the eye, sometimes near the
eyebrow and a little bit on the chin.Just a little shimmer on the chin.An as you see
I keep putting on both sides, mixing the shimmer blush and I am giving her a nice little highlight
all the way up from the apple all the way up to the temple.Even go very close to her
eyebrow.Almost give that runway look that she just came off the runway.So I applied
blush with three tools.The simple way is just using a blush brush in a circular motion on
the apple of her cheek all the way up to the temple.If I want to use a shimmer,I take my
flat contour brush, dab it into the shimmer and throw it slightly on the cheek, all the
way up,bringing it down, down, down even up here and on the chin.A little bit on the nose.And
if I want to give myself some real definition in my cheeks, I use a precision brush.And
the precision brush is always using a slight darker blush or even a bronzer and just go
right in to between the cheek, the apple of the cheek and the jawline.It is mapped in
the middle, almost like a little curve on her face.She has got beautiful high cheek
bones.But if you want to crate high cheek bones, this is where you get it.And you could
add a little contour right here. I sometimes add a little blush here as well.And
there you have it bright cheeks.”

  1. xPanicAtTheDiscoXOXO I agree. This should get more views. I think it's because the majority of girls these days cake on lots of make- up that make them look like a tangerine or as if they have oily skin.

  2. Omg thanks so much for this video. I have always wanted to apply blush but I wanted to learn how to attcually apply it properly before I attcually apply blush on myself. This really helped me a lot. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS TUTORIAL ♥!

  3. she ain't applying anything in any of these videos! using so little to no product is just as stupid as using too much. there's no change at the end!
