Blush for mature skin

Where should I apply blush on a mature face?

The thing about aging skin is that it tends to droop more as we get older. It’s important that you don’t apply blush too low, or too high, because blush is meant to give your face a lifting effect. Make sure you’re applying your blush about half an inch (or the width of a finger) away from your nose, mouth, and eyes, making it near the center of your cheeks. This is the ideal spot for your to start to apply blush, so that it still gives you the lifting affect you need.

How do I apply blush?

Once you figure out what blush to use and where to apply it, it’s time to actually start incorporating it into your routine. You’ll want to curve the blush upwards toward your temple, and make sure that you aren’t smiling too much while applying the blush, so that you don’t alter the location of your cheeks too much. This will help you to actually create a natural glow in the best place for your face shape.
