How to: Glowing Cheeks

In this look, I wanted a bright, glowing face.  Here are the products and steps I used to achieve these soft pink radiant cheeks.

1. I applied my face and eye makeup as desired.  Next, I used my finger to apply Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum to the apples of my cheeks.  This is a mauve shade that is super shimmery.  I would almost consider it to have tiny glitter in it.
2. Using a duo fiber blush brush, I swept on Covergirl Cheekers Blush in True Plum over the mousse blush.  This shade has a soft shimmery quality that is very subtle.
3. I used an angled blush brush to apply N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny below my cheekbones as a contour.  I wanted to glowy focus to be on the apples of the cheeks, which is why I used this matte bronzer to contour.
4. Last, I used e.l.f. Studio Blush in Gotta Glow and went back over the apples to add even more luminosity to the look.

  1. You should also try Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks. They really give you a natural glow. I also have got sooooo many compliments.
