Okay, you might never hear of this trick before, right? If you own different types of blushers including powder ones, this one is for you. However, make sure that you use the blusher that features the same shade. After you’re done with your makeup, simply grab the powder blusher and gently apply it to your cheeks. Trust us, it will last throughout the day. Who would have thought that all we need is two types of blushers?

3. Amp Up Your Technique

We’re spilling the top secret just for you! If you truly want to achieve a perfect makeup look that won’t even budge, it’s all about the technique. Although some of us develop a habit of applying the blusher in certain areas, it’s time that you refrain yourself from doing so. For those who have tried the draping method, you’re already halfway there. Simply, apply the blusher on the temple and hollow of the cheeks. Then gently dab it on your forehead too for an ethereal and whimsical look.

The next blusher technique is a K-beauty trend which is definitely not for the faint of heart. But once you try it out, you will never look back again! Religiously apply the blusher just below your lashes and sweep it outwards toward the cheekbones. With this method, it doesn’t only accentuate your facial features, but it is noticeable even if you’re wearing a face mask.

4. Look for Long-Lasting Formula

When in doubt, look for a blusher that is a label with a long-lasting formula! That’s definitely handy and super easy peasy than reading the infinite list of ingredients, right? Any beauty products that are formulated with a long-lasting finish, mean that they are transfer-proof and smudge-proof. You need to avoid using any blushers that have a watery consistency or liquid finish since they don’t usually stay in place.
