"It's not everyday you find a company that offers reasonably priced brushes that are high quality."
Many blushes come with a brush. Most often, you can toss these, as the bristles are too narrow, and are difficult to hold for the best application.
The key to a great blush brush is one that the bristles are as wide as the apples of your cheeks, and have a soft angle that fits the hollow of your cheeks. A soft, yet firm bristle head will allow you to place as much or as little blush as desired, while being able to evenly blend out for a flawless finish. Beauty Junkees Angled Kabuki Makeup Brush was designed with a soft angle that fits the natural contour of the cheek.
Dense Synthetic Bristles
Beauty Junkees Kabuki Makeup Brush Set is made from synthetic Taklon, which is a man made material. Synthetic bristles very smooth, so they don't pick up too much product, which allows for soft layering of powder or for use with cream blushes. They are easier to clean, as the bristles do not absorb pigments. They also last longer as they are less prone to damage from makeup and cleaners.
How to Properly Apply Blush
There are 2 ways you can apply blush, depending on your desired look.
1. For a more contoured look, you want to focus on the hollows of your cheeks, just under your cheekbones. Suck in your cheeks, and apply in a smooth line from the apple in your cheek up toward your hairline. Then blend in a back and forth motion until there are no harsh lines. This will enhance the appearance of high cheekbones, which is something most of us desire! Consider using a color that is a similar to your skin tone.
2. For an everyday look, you can add some color onto the apples of your cheekbones. Put on a big smile, and gently apply your blush color of choice onto the apples, then blend in a circular motion until you achieve the desired finish.
