It's happened to the best of us: we step out of the house thinking we did a fabulous job as doing at our makeup only to see that our blush didn't blend too well. While a blush is primarily supposed to add a little colour to your cheeks and definition to your face in general, an extra swipe of blush can lead to clown cheeks.
1. Never apply your blush directly after you blend your foundation in. The powder blush will get stuck on the un-set foundation and won't blend as well as you'd hope. Follow this route: first the foundation, then the powder (could be loose or compact powder) and then powder blush. The powder on powder is easier to blend.

2. If you choose a liquid tint like me, chances are it'll go everywhere if you don't take your time and do it right. So after I put on my concealer, I apply the liquid cheek tint and then put on my foundation. That way, if I've gone over, I can use a bit more foundation and it'll look A-OK.

3. The third thing you can do is choose lighter shades to use as a blush. Instead of going for bright pink, try dusty rose or taupe.
