Wearing blush in winter: that’s how you do it

A good quality blush should of course not be missing in your make-up bag. This colored powder or cream comes in handy every season. But, in winter you wear blush differently than in winter.

We explain why this is the case and what you should pay attention to.

Tip 1: Hydrate your skin

Good skincare is extra important in winter. The cold temperatures sometimes cause red and irritated skin. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems by properly moisturizing your skin. This actually applies a protective layer. Wash your face thoroughly in the morning and then apply a good facial oil. Only then use make-up. Then you step into the winter cold with a well-groomed and radiant skin! 

Tip 2: Use bronzer and blush

A blush is not the same as a bronzer. Bronzer is a brown powder that you apply to your skin. This gives your skin a wonderful sun-kissed touch. It is one of the make-up techniques that ensures that your skin remains healthy in winter. Some people think they have to choose between blush and bronzer. However, we have good news for you: you don’t have to. In fact, we recommend warming up your skin with a bronzer first. Then apply blush to your skin. Thanks to the bronzer you look brown and healthy, while the blush makes your face fresh and clear.

Tip 3: Apply blush with your fingers

We recommend applying blush gently with your fingers first. The warmth of your hands melts the product slowly, making it easier to apply. First, gently tap the blush onto your cheeks. After that, blend it with your fingers or a small brush. Do you prefer a matte look? No worries, apply a little face powder to the area where you applied the blush.

Tip 4: Avoid pink and opt for dark blush

Soft pink make-up goes perfectly with the summer. At warmer temperatures, your skin usually gets a nice tan, and cheerful and bright colors go well with that. In winter we recommend accentuating your face with darker shades. It’s better to wear dark make-up than bright pink. For example, a blush of rust-colored red can be perfectly combined with winter lipstick and eyeshadow. Combine your make-up with neutral winter clothing to complete the look.

Tip 5: Apply blush under your cheekbones

Always apply a blush just below your cheekbones. This will accentuate the most beautiful parts of your face. In addition, it gives your face a healthy and natural color. And who wouldn’t want that in the winter? While applying make-up, open your mouth wide. This makes your cheekbones very visible. This makes applying blush in the right places a piece of cake.

Tip 6: Accentuate your cheeks and cheekbones

Are you known for your blushing apple cheeks? Nothing to be ashamed of! In winter, you can accentuate this by applying a little white powder to your cheekbones, just above your blush. Blend well to accentuate your cheekbones and cheeks. Bet you will look healthier and more radiant than ever thanks to this trick?
