Although our favourite Bollywood celebrities flaunt a full face of makeup on screen, in reality they always turn to one makeup product… and it’s not kajal! From Katrina Kaif and Sonakshi Sinha, to Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, all the stars love a healthy flush on their cheeks. Here are a few tips to get you hooked on to blush!

1. Start With Cream Blushes

Are you a newbie in the world of rouge? Begin your journey with cream formulas. Not only are they easier to blend, but can also be layered to build up colour. Try out stick products to make things simpler.

2. Choose Powder When Needed

If your complexion veers towards the oilier side, opt for powder blushes. These tend to last longer and also soak up any shine.

3. Experiment With Colour

Baby pinks aren’t for everyone. Hues such as purple, tangerine and coral can look great on your cheeks too! As for those of you with darker skin tones, you can even rock a beautiful red flush!

4. Try Shimmer

When you are looking to make a statement, shimmery blushes are your answer. Skip the all out glitter, and go for formulas with micro-shimmer and pearly finishes.

5. Placement Is Key

Rounder faces should apply blush under their cheekbones, while those with angular structures can soften up their features by placing the blush directly on the apples of their cheeks.
