I think of makeup as something that should enhance your look and benefit your skin. Blush simply provides that little extra umph to give you a natural youthful glow.
Here are my favorite natural blushes:
Josie Maran Coconut-Water based Cheek Gelee (my all-time favorite blush!)
For the most natural look...
1. Begin your blush application at the top of the apple of your cheek. The idea is to deposit most of the pigment where rosiness would first appear naturally, if you were simply flushing.
2. Smile to push the apples up.
3. Then, placing the color on the part that lies directly below your pupil, blend outward, toward the ear.
