Just a quick blush tip that should also spare your wrist muscles. When you’re applying and blending blush, try holding your brush a little further back away from the tip. It should lighten the pressure you apply on the bristles (so you should see the bristles bending a little less).
And why don’t you want to press super hard on that brush? Well, when you press really hard, you tend to push the blush into a smaller area, as opposed to buffing and smoothing it around. It also just plain makes the job harder, and no one wants blush blending to be the bane of their existence.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. My in-laws are visiting the Bay Area tonight and tomorrow for a special visit because my mom-in-law just turned 70! She’s 70 and absolutely fabulous. We’ll be treating them to a night at the San Francisco symphony tomorrow, which should be a lot of fun.
This’ll also be Baby Girl’s first time hearing her grandparents. I’ve read that at 16 weeks babies can hear voices outside the tummy, so I’m going to have her nana sing to her (once upon a time, she sang back up for The Beach Boys!) as much as possible.
