Breaking Down Beauty: How To Tone Down Bright Blush

By Sheila Arkee

It’s an innocent enough mistake that has happpened to all of us at one point or another. Clown blush. You know what I’m talking about.


A little bit too much of a heavily pigmented blush and you’re left with overdone cheeks. Never fear – this does not mean you have to start your makeup all over again. With a clean brush and a transluscent powder, you can go from super bright to super flattering in a matter of seconds.

Step 1: Use a clean brush and a light hand to sweep out the color. Don’t worry, you won’t make matters worse!

Step 2: Blend, blend, blend! When things are somewhat under control, dip the brush in a translucent powder, going over your blush and making sure the edges are blended in to the rest of your face.

Step 3: Much better! The translucent powder really helps keep things under control and you’re left with a well-blende flush instead of a punch of color.
