Watch Val create a bold blush look that wows by layering different blush formats!

  • 01 Makeup artist Val Harvey creates a blush base using a buildable cream blush by Maybelline.

    HOW TO APPLY BOLD BLUSH COLOR STEP 1: CREATE A CREAM BLUSH BASE

    Take a hot hue of buildable cream blush and place color onto both the apples of cheeks and high on the cheekbone using a finger or a small, tapered makeup brush. Press color gently into skin to create a seamless effect and preserve the dewiness of the formula.
