How to Apply Blush to Asian Skin

Learn how to apply blush to Asian skin from celebrity makeup artist Raychel Wade in this Howcast makeup tutorial.


So I'm going to show you the best way to apply blush. With Asian skin it tends to have a yellow undertone. So what I like to do is go to the other end of the spectrum and pick something kind of bright and cool just to break up the monotony of the color palette.

There are a million blushes out there. But don't be afraid of the really bright ones that you find at the makeup counter. For instance., look at this guy. This one is really scary bright pink. But I'm going to put it on Nicole right now. And you're going to see how wearable it can actually be. And it can make you look younger.

So I'm going to take a small brush. Dip it into the blush. And starting on the apple of her cheek. The best way to find the apple of your cheek is right below your pupil and across from the tip of your nose. Right there where that meets is the apple of your cheek. I'm just going to kind of swirl it right on the apple of her cheek and blend out like cat whiskers.

If your blush looks scary bright don't be afraid. You don't have to take it off. Take the foundation brush that you used earlier. It's got a tiny bit of product left on it. And just very gently go right over it. So what that's going to do is it's going to blend everything together so that the blush looks like it's coming from within versus sitting just on top of your skin.

So by putting the blush right on the apples of the cheek it just gives a really natural flushed look. And don't be afraid to go bright. It really is a beautiful complement to yellow undertones of your skin.
