Blushing the Apples of the Cheeks

Applying blush on the apples of your cheeks creates a natural flush to the skin and a fresh appearance. Follow these tips for a natural and flattering look:

Use your mixing tool: Start by looking in the mirror, hold your mixing tool up to your face and trace an invisible line from the centre of the eye (the iris) down to just below the nose. Now take your mixing tool just below your nose and trace and invisible line from the under the nose to towards your ear.

Where these two lines cross is the ideal placement for your Cheek/Lip tint. Blend upwards from here. Ensure you don't bring your blush any lower or closer to the nose than this point. Watch Emma's Tutorial Here.

Choose the right shade: Select a Cheek/Lip Tint shade that complements your skin tone. Fair skin tones can go for soft pinks or peaches, while deeper skin tones can experiment with rich browns or berries.

A good tip is to look at the natural colour of your lips and select a shade that has a similar to your natural lip colour. If in doubt, send a makeup free selfie into our makeup artists, if you need help selecting the perfect shade for you.

Use a blush brush: Alephs Buffer Brush is the ultimate brush for creme color application, it helps distribute the color evenly and provides a seamless blend.

Apply with a light hand: Start with a small amount and gradually build up the color as needed.

Blend for a natural finish: Using light, circular motions, blend the Cheek/Lip Tint into your skin for a natural and diffused look. This will prevent any harsh lines and create a soft, radiant glow.

Achieving a Lifted Look with Blush

To create the illusion of lifted cheekbones and a sculpted appearance, try these tips:

Focus on the higher points of your cheeks: Apply Cheek/Lip Tint in an upward motion using our buffer brush.

Instead of applying blush straight across your cheeks, apply it in an upward motion towards your temples. This technique creates the illusion of lifted cheeks.

Highlight for added lift: Select Aleph radiance in star, moon or sun. Apply Radiance balm on the highest point of your cheekbones, pressing it into the skin gently towards your temples. This technique adds dimension and enhances the lift.

Blush is a makeup essential that can instantly elevate your look and enhance your natural beauty. Whether you desire a soft flush on the apples of your cheeks or a lifted, sculpted appearance.

Embrace the power of Aleph Cheek/ Lip Tint and let your cheeks radiate with a beautiful, blushing glow!
