Applying Blush Correctly

Applying blush is easier than you think! Use a soft brush like our contoured cheek brush with the shorter end facing upwards. Start blush on your cheek bone right up near the ear and sweep curving to about an inch from nose (We are already pink enough in the center of the face) Practice first with you eyes closed and nothing on the brush so you can feel your bone just under the skin. If blush goes on too heavy and scares you then read below:   Such as Crushed Apricot Blush

a. You don’t want blush up too high or too low or all the way to your nose, just follow the shape of your own cheekbone.

a. If blush is too strong or too dark on you, you may need to go to a softer color especially if you are fair skinned or mature.

b. Blush may be the wrong colortone for your skin (blush should look like you only better after light exercise) Check our our 4 Seasons color selection to find colors most natural to your coloring. 

Blush for warm or cool tones [My cheeks are naturally lavender pink (cool) My friend blushes bronzey tan (warm) and my niece a light coppery pink (warm) tone]

c. You may be using the wrong brush size. Perhaps the brush is too large or too small to fit your cheekbone. A tiny person can use a small blusher while a larger person needs one at least 1 ½ inches wide to blush in one or two strokes. Dabbing on blush makes it look blotchy.

d. If blush leaves a hard edge, try using our bamboo goat hair blush brushes. They are extra soft to leave no edge lines. If I apply too much blush I just use a tiny dab of foundation on a sponge wedge and ‘gently’ stroke downward to lift off a little color.

e. Never apply blush up near your brow or down below your cheek bone. It is O. K. to dust a bit onto your forehead and tip of chin.

Gray Eyebrow Pencils for Women over 50!

Older women want great eyebrows, too!  Pass the Word…

Leigh Grogan, columnist at the Sacramento Bee Newspaper locates hard to find Cosmetics.  She wrote about us in her article on hard to find medium gray eyebrow pencils to replace the discontined Maybelleine gray eyebrow pencil. sells a pencil called Charcoal Mineral Eyebrow Pencil  that is a nice warmed dark gray with a soft tip that  is easy to apply.  Hold it like you would a pen at an angle and making short strokes going the direction hairs grow..

If your hair is pale silver or white, we have two light gray pressed powder shadows that double as brow powders with tiny brow brush included.


Some women prefer to use or combine Gray Eyebrow Powder  with our  charcoal pencils.   


*For darker brows, we have a Gray Pro Eyebrow Pencil that’s darker than  our newer Charcoal Mineral based Brow Pencil.

Eyebrow Accessories:   Aura Cosmetics also carries a clear sealer called Brow Fix to keep brows in line plus a clear Brow Wax for Brows.
